The Big Give - Christmas Challenge

03 December 2019

We really need your help this December to raise more money to support our Hospice at Home service which will be supporting families in their homes over the Christmas period.

During the week from midday 3rd December until midday 10th December ALL ONLINE DONATIONS received will be DOUBLED through our match-funding pledgers.
We would love your help to reach our £11,000 target, which will be DOUBLED to £22,000!

This would pay the salaries and travel expenses for our Hospice at Home Team to visit patients in their homes for four weeks over the festive period and will ensure that our patients receive our compassionate, expert care in the comfort of their own homes during this time.

Our Hospice at Home service is free of charge and available 24 hours, 365 days of the year (including Christmas Day) and is available to anyone over the age of 18 years who is registered with a South Warwickshire GP and who lives in South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds surrounds.

Demand for this service is growing year on year, and last year we had a 20% increase in referrals. However, this service is not free to run. It costs £750 to run this service for one day.

By making a donation, you will help us to raise much needed funds to enable more patients and their families to spend Christmas together. 

- A donation of £20 will be doubled so it can pay for the travel costs for two visits from our Hospice at Home team to provide clinical, emotional and practical support providing care for end-of-life patients in the comfort of their own home. 

- A donation of £75 will be doubled so it can keep a Hospice at Home staff member on the road for a month.

- A donation of £375 would be doubled and could cover the costs of running our Hospice at Home service for a day (£750), providing care for patients with life limiting conditions in the comfort of their own home.
