Give the gift of Christmas this year to Springhill Hospice

Date published: 24 November 2019

Springhill Hospice has launched a Christmas campaign to raise funds to ‘give the gift of Christmas’ to their patients and families this festive period.

Following on from the success of the Comfort for All campaign which Springhill Hospice launched earlier in 2019, the hospice has now launched its latest Christmas campaign.

The appeal is looking to raise money for patients and their families so that they are able to celebrate in the best possible way for one more Christmas. The money raised through the campaign will help fund not only a delicious Christmas dinner but also pamper sessions, the hospice’s night sitting service and even a drink of their favourite tipple.

The services that the hospice offers run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so making Christmas a special time is very important. However this can’t happen without the help and generosity of those who donate to the hospice.

It costs £3.2million a year - or £8,928 every day - to keep the hospice open.

Rebekah Cheshire, events and campaigns fundraiser at Springhill Hospice said: “The Christmas season is such a family orientated time and this year, we invite people to 'give the gift of Christmas' to a patient at Springhill Hospice.

“By giving someone the chance to get their nails done or enjoy a Christmas dinner, it can make such a difference.

“Any donation, large or small will help our patients and their families to enjoy one more Christmas together and to make special memories.”

For a donation as little as £10 supporters can provide a patient with an extra special treat that can really help them and their families this Christmas at Springhill Hospice.
