Our Care Continues Thanks to YOU
Katharine House Hospice is able to continue to offer services thanks to the kindness and generosity of local people who have supported our emergency appeal.
We are incredibly grateful for the overwhelming response of our local community at our time of need.
Our appeal has raised over £850,000 with some funds still to come in, we are humbled by this response and this vital support is ensuring we can continue to support patients and their families.
The response to our emergency campaign has meant we can continue to deliver our care whilst we wait for our shops to reopen, and our fundraising events programme to recommence.
We would like to pay tribute to everyone who has supported us and continues to do so. From children to businesses, families and community group, our local caring community has rallied around us.
People have foregone Christmas presents to make a donation, they’ve walked, ran and climbed – they’ve gamed, crafted, sewed and baked. Our landlords have supported us by reducing our rent on closed shops – local businesses have held staff days to raise funds, sold fish and chips and sent donations rather than gifts and cards for colleagues. We have received wonderful support from grant givers. Local groups have provided PPE and materials for our shops and care teams. For each and every one of our wonderful local supporters we would like to say a heart-felt thank you – as your hospice we could not continue without your support.
As members of our community you have clearly shown your passion for our cause and your commitment to the ongoing provision of hospice care. Your response has exceeded our wildest expectations and our staff and volunteers are so very grateful. Your support will have a major impact on the care that local families receive.
Once again we would like to thank members of our local community who have done and continue to do all you can to raise vital funds to help maintain our services.
