St Luke’s is not just a building – it’s a group of volunteers, clinicians and supporters who help to deliver exceptional end of life care to patients and their families. To deliver our exceptional end of life care free to those who need it most we have to raise £8,614 every single day.
With Pay for a Day you can help us do this by covering the cost of 24 hours care on a day of your choosing. During this time we will support approximately 30 local people with round the clock care on our inpatient unit, and holistic treatments, symptom management, emotional and practical support for patients and families through Day Hospice. In a place where every moment counts, donating the cost of 24 hours care is truly a gift.
Set yourself a fundraising target
In the work place we’re all quite used to working towards targets, setting yourself a goal and looking to achieve it. So if you’re planning on supporting St Luke’s this year you might like to set yourself a target, and Pay for a Day could be a perfect way to do this.
Celebrate your special day
Hitting a fundraising target, no matter how big or small, deserves celebrating. Hitting a fundraising target of £8,614 and paying for a whole day of hospice care at St Luke’s deserves something extra special.
Choosing to Pay for a Day means an awful lot to us and we would love to celebrate with you, making your day as enjoyable and memorable as possible. If you are happy for us to do this here is what we’ll have planned;
Choose your day
After raising so much money we would be honoured for you to choose the day you would like to pay for.
At the Hospice
We will create a personalised certificate which will take pride of place in the Hospice, telling all our visitors that you have paid for that day. As well as your name and the date, you are also welcome to include a personal message. You are also welcome to visit the Hospice on your chosen day, and after a guided tour, enjoy tea and cakes and meet some key staff.
We can display your name on our website and tell everyone that you have paid for that day, and via our popular social media channels. We can also share your story on our website, your dedicated page is a chance to explain why you have chosen to Pay for a Day.
Who will Pay for a Day help?
Each year we touch the lives of more than 8,000 people, supporting them in a number of ways from personalised 24 hour care on our inpatient unit, to bereavement support for family members.
Why I chose to Pay for a Day
A very generous local supporter has chosen to lay the foundations for St Luke’s Pay for a Day with their gift this Christmas Day, paying for 24 hours of care on what is considered to be one of the most caring days of the year. They said,
“St Luke’s Hospice is a fantastic place and helps so many people in my community and I feel very passionate about supporting the work they do. My Mum and Dad were both supported by hospices and I really wanted to do something for them, so my decision to pay for Christmas Day this year is something wonderful to give in their memory. I am honoured to support St Luke’s and really hope other people will support Pay for a Day.”
St Luke’s is a place where every moment matters for our patients; every donation we receive is a gift to them.
