If you are able to give your support in this way, then please fill out the form and send it to us.
 £10 could provide a delicious and nutritious lunch for a patient in day hospice

“ I am writing on behalf of my husband and myself to thank you for the care that he has had at St Richard’s over the last three months. He has enjoyed the change of scenery, the company and all the other services offered – doctor, hairdresser and of course, lunch.”

£15 could provide a relaxing aromatherapy massage, Indian head massage, reiki or reflexology session.

“I found the four week period of treatment extremely beneficial and ht has helped me to relax and take stock. It allowed me an hour to de-stress and I do feel the reflexology has had an effect on my well-being.”

£20 could sponsor one of our specialist nurses for an hour

“From the moment my father entered St Richard’s we were welcomed by caring, professional staff who did their utmost to make my father’s last few days peaceful and comfortable.”
£30 could provide a counselling session for a family coming to terms with their loss

“I wanted to thank you for the superb counselling I have had at the Snowdrop Centre. The counsellor listened patiently and remembered what I had said over the months and has helped by her kindness and common sense to bring me out of the dark place I was in. Please carry on this fantastic service.”

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.
