Make your Christmas greetings even bigger this year

St Richard’s Hospice is encouraging people to save time and money this Christmas by using one of their free giant Christmas message posters.

Instead of sending individual cards to friends and colleagues, festive messages can be written on the poster and a donation made to the hospice.

St Richard’s fundraiser Jayne Sargeant said, “This is a lovely, cheery snowman poster which will brighten up any workplace or wall and is a great way to save time, paper and money as well as helping the hospice.”

To request a poster and special donations envelope contact the Fundraising Dept on 01905 763963 or email

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative care for patients living with life-threatening illnesses and supports their families. Each year the hospice team supports over 2,600 patients and family members in Worcestershire with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.

Patients are cared for in Day Hospice, the 17-bed In-patient Unit or in their own homes by a specialist professional team as well as many trained volunteers.

In the In-patient Unit, specialist staff are on hand 24 hours a day to manage patients’ symptoms and where, if appropriate, patients may spend the last few days of life in comfort and dignity. St Richard’s is an independent charity and is grateful for all donations to help it to continue its work.
