Thank you to everybody that helped us create our special garden made up of 1,200 vibrant and unique dragonflies which are handmade by The British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry especially for St Richard’s. The beautiful display has now come to an end, however our lovely dragonfly sculptures are still available to either plant in your own garden or give away as a gift – all we ask is a donation towards the care the we provide for our community.
The donation amount is your choice, and will help fund our care, however it may help you to know that a donation of £34.62 could pay for a Hospice at Home Healthcare Assistant for three hours, £43.44 could help to pay for a Day Hospice Nurse for an hour or £64.37 could pay for a Family Support Counsellor for 5 hours.*
*this is the full cost of employing a member of staff and all on-costs. Figures relate to the audited accounts 2017/18.

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.
