To commemorate St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice’s 25th year, Crewe & Nantwich MP Edward Timpson is looking to the future and asking the hospice’s invaluable supporters to help ensure the long-term sustainability of its patient care.
The Winsford-based hospice which provides care for people from Mid and South Cheshire suffering from cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, is inviting locals to support the hospice by donating as little as £2 a month - less than the price of one takeout coffee - through its new Regular Giving plan.
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.
Crewe & Nantwich MP Mr Timpson commented: “Over the last 25 years, the hospice has been indebted to its wonderful and dedicated network of supporters.
“Thanks to your ongoing support the hospice has touched the lives of thousands of families, and I've seen for myself the incredible care they provide to people from across Mid and South Cheshire.”
St Luke’s Head of Community Fundraising Diane Eeley 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.
