Give a Gift of Care

If there's one thing that Boris's lockdown order has taught us, it's that we're not 'stuck at home', but we're blessed to have a home.

As we adapt to life indoors, many of us are lucky enough to be surrounded by everything we need. So when it comes to buying a unique present for someone, it can be a real challenge. That's why we're inviting you to buy your family, friends and colleagues a Saint Francis Hospice Gift of Care.


A Gift of Care works just like buying a gift voucher for someone for a special occasion. It's a donation to our Hospice — with a twist. You can buy a Gift of Care in someone else's name so that both of you are doing something incredible for people living with life-limiting illnesses.


A Gift of Care is the perfect way to remind the people you love that they remain very much in your mind — despite social distancing. Plus, the gesture will show those who desperately need your help that they are also in your thoughts. Gifts of Care are for anyone, but they make a particularly special present if the person you're buying one for has a connection with our Hospice.


Your gift will be put straight to good use: directly supporting our patients and their families.


With a Gift of Care, you could:

 
  • buy a home visit from one of our nurses
  • provide a meal for one of our patients
  • sponsor one of our nurses for 12 months
  • help manage a person's pain and discomfort with a 24-hour stay on our ward
  • fund a complimentary bereavement therapy session
  • give art materials to a bereaved child
