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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.
