St Richard's Hospice

Over the past week, our spirits have been lifted by countless heart-warming gestures and messages of support from our community 💙

A perfect example of the generosity shown by our supporters, is from Martyn and Diana - who donated funds for their 50th wedding anniversary party to our care 😍

The couple were due to have a get-together with family, but were forced to put-off the celebrations due to restrictions around coronavirus.

After receiving our Resilience Fund email last week, they chose to use the funds set aside to help us continue supporting patients and loved ones. A truly selfless gesture!

Martyn says: "We have known many friends who have been helped by the love, care and support St Richard's gives to those who need it, and their families. By making a donation, we will remember our anniversary - not as was originally planned, but in a different and satisfying way."

Happy anniversary Martyn and Diana - and thank you both for your generosity at this difficult time for us all! 💙

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
