How are we funded?

St Richard’s is an independent hospice that relies mainly on voluntary income to enable us to continue to provide our services.

We need to raise 75.5% of our annual costs to run the hospice from voluntary donations. The remainder is contributed by the NHS.

Voluntary donations include gifts of money and standing orders or gifts in kind, legacies and grants from trusts and other grant-making bodies. We also benefit from company and business sponsorship, payroll giving, employee fundraising, donations from organisations and donations in memoriam.

We have our own volunteer fundraising groups who organise regular events and assist with shop and street collections as well as supporters who place collecting boxes in local community outlets.

Another way or raising income is through our charity shops selling donated goods and other hospice merchandise. In addition we benefit from the local hospices lottery.

Cost

No charge is made to patients and families for any of our services. This is made possible due to the generosity of our donors and supporters.
