To commemorate St Luke’s 25th year of care, two of our local MPs are backing our regular giving campaign. Northwich, Weaverham and Hartford MP Graeme Evans and Congleton MP Fiona Bruce are looking to the future and asking the hospice’s invaluable supporters to help ensure the long-term sustainability of its patient care.
“Over the last 25 years, the hospice has been indebted to its wonderful and dedicated network of supporters. The invaluable care St Luke’s provides extends far beyond the beds at the hospice. It has trained more than 2,000 health care professionals and the numerous dedicated outreach groups provide an inspiring and essential service. For just a small donation you can help to ensure we all live well in our later years and further strengthen St Luke’s dedicated work in communities across Mid and South Cheshire.
Thanks to your ongoing support the hospice has touched the lives of thousands of families, providing care to people from all across Mid and South Cheshire so I would encourage all supporters to help ensure that continues for another 25 years and beyond by giving what they can.”
St Luke’s Regular Giving Development Manager Claire Langston added: “Regular Giving enables us to sustain our future with more confidence and reach more local people and their families and friends. It is also a great, easy and effective way of helping your local hospice maintain its FREE services to local people.
You can increase, decrease or cancel your regular gift at any time. What’s more, as long as you are a UK taxpayer, your gift will be eligible for gift aid which means it will be worth an extra 25% to the hospice at no extra cost to you.
“Donations can be as little as £2 a month and have the power to make all the difference.”
More than £6,500 a day is needed for St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice to open its doors and the majority of that money is found through its incredible network of supporters and fundraisers but every small donation goes a long way towards building a sustainable future for Cheshire patient care.
- Just £2 a month enables the hospice to provide two meals for a patient during respite breaks at St Luke’s or visiting the day hospice.
- £5 a month, over a year, would pay for a patient to attend Day Hospice for one of their regular visits.
- £10 a month, over a year, would pay for a patient to attend two of the hospice’s complementary therapy clinics.
- £20 a month, over 12 months, would enable a patient to receive one day of round the clock, intensive nursing care.
A monthly gift, given via Direct Debit, will go to work straight away in your local area, helping to improve care and help people with life threatening illness.
