Coins for Care

11th October 2019 @ 8:00 am - 13th October 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Coins for Care is our first mass collection weekend where we will be asking for donations at various places across Worcester over 3 days, asking for donations to support our care.

Last year it cost £8.8 Million to fund our care – with two-thirds of this amount coming from the generosity of the local community that we serve.

We’re asking our supporters to spare an hour of their time at one of our collection stations to help us to raise the most that we can. The more volunteers that we recruit, the more money we can raise to continue

The launch of St Richard’s Hospice Coins for Care is particularly poignant in 2019 as the dates fall within Hospice Care Week, 7th-13th October; the theme this year being This Is What It Takes.

With this theme in mind, we want the focus to be on our wonderful community who help us to do What It Takes to continue to provide care in our community, the patients and their loved ones.

Help us at Coins for Care Weekend – Friday 11th to Sunday 13th October 2019, across Worcestershire – locations include, Worcester, Evesham, Droitwich, Malvern and Tewkesbury.

If you can help, please fill out the form below and we will be in contact with you or call us on 01905763963. Please note volunteers must be over 16 years of age.

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.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.

Please do not visit St Richard’s Hospice if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough. If you have these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. See NHS advice on coronavirus.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
