Save the date for Yuletide Jog

11th September 2017

Christmas may still be months away, but here at St Richard’s we’re well and truly in the festive spirit already.

We’re busy preparing to hold a fantastic Yuletide Jog this December – and you’re invited to put on your silliest Christmas fancy dress and take part.

The fundraising 5K run, jog, or walk will take place at The Valley Evesham on Sunday, 3rd December from 10am – so pencil the date in your diaries now!

DSC08012Runners can get creative and dress in any costume they choose – and there will be prizes for the best-dressed runners on the day.

Contact Kelly Johns, Fundraiser, on 01905 763963 or email kjohns@strichards.org.uk for more information and watch this space for details on how to book your place.

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.
