Read about what has been happening at St Andrew’s Hospice, our upcoming fundraising events, patient and staff stories and how you can get involved.
Thank you for reading the Summer issue of the St Andrew’s hospice newsletter.
The last few months have been unexpected to say the least, but we have continued to provide care and support to our patients within both adult and children’s inpatient units as well as in children’s own homes. Although our other services are temporarily unavailable, we are working to bring sessions such as our Wellbeing services online and we thank everyone who has joined us for these virtual sessions. Your feedback is so important in helping us create a truly valuable service, so if you have any feedback please do let us know by emailing us.
We have also been busy preparing all of our public-facing services to be able to operate as safely and effectively as possible as lockdown measures continue to relax, including making sure our charity shops and hair studio are fully Covid Secure. We are now welcoming our volunteers back to these areas and are confident in their safe and happy return.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us through this very challenging time; whether you have saved your unwanted, previously loved treasures to donate to our shops, taken part in our online quizzes, bought a “gift for good” from our website to help us build for the future, joined our Big Fish Lottery, or been part of corporate giving through your place of work – every single one of you has truly helped us here at the hospice, and seeing this support of our local community really brings home the importance of what we do here and has gone a long way to enabling our staff to feel they have made a significant contribution to the wider care system.
