A Wish for Christmas
Here at St Richard’s it’s our privilege to make our patients’ wishes a reality, whether that’s seeing snow for a final time or simply being close to loved ones when it matters most.
Whether a patient’s wish is to be at home or here with us this Christmas we will do our utmost to make it a time of comfort and joy.
Our team will be here to welcome families through the doors on Christmas afternoon and there will be plenty of festive music and laughter. The gift of time together for patients and their loved
ones means so much to us all here at the hospice.
And our specialist team will be on hand to support our patients and families at home across Worcestershire this festive season. Nurses will be on the end of a phone or a video call 24/7 and our community team will visit at home to provide support.
We’ll be running virtual Living Well services right up to Christmas including some social get-togethers: ever important at a time when loneliness and isolation can be felt by some.
Why your support matters
There is simply no way we could do all this without the support of you and other kind-hearted people like you. The fundraising climate is challenging, but we’ve been heartened by the generous support of our community again this year.
Despite this, we continue to need help to fund our care for the future. You see, last year it cost £8.75m to run the hospice, including patient care and all the necessary support services. We rely on supporters to help us raise the majority of our income.
In uncertain times for everyone living through the coronavirus pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we give local patients and families the best possible care and support this Christmas.
With your gift, we can continue to put patients at the heart of everything we do.
With every wish of happiness and joy from our St Richard’s Hospice family to yours.
