Sarah, CEO

“Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m the CEO at St Clare Hospice. Right now, there are many families in your local community facing death, dying and loss, alone. With your help, we can continue to expand our hospice services and reach as many of those people as possible.

“No one wants to face one of life’s hardest journeys alone. With your help, they won’t have to.

“As a charity, St Clare receives only limited funding from the NHS. We rely on you and people throughout your local community to help others living with a life-limiting illness. By giving a donation today you will directly help people in desperate need of pain relief, end of life care and bereavement support.”

“Unfortunately, there are still so many local people that have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness in your local community, that aren’t getting the support they need. Together, we can help people to live well with their diagnosis and hold their hand every step of the way. Any donation you can afford to give today will help people gain control, comfort and dignity at the end of their life.”

Keely’s story…

“Your continued support will help hundreds of families like Keely’s.

“Keely is 48 years old and a mother to three children. In October 2021, Keely was diagnosed with untreatable lung cancer, which has spread to her bones.

“Keely had been struggling with back pain for a while. But as a busy working mum, she kept putting off going to see a doctor. Keely was convinced she just had a slipped disc in her back that would eventually get better by itself. However, after having two separate full body MRI scans, the Doctor told her it was in fact cancer that was causing her pain. Soon after, she was admitted to hospital.

“As Keely’s pain continued to get worse, she was in desperate need of extra support. Thanks to your kind donations, Keely was able to come to St Clare Hospice with her family. She received the specialist care she needed to get her pain under control. After 28 days of staying at the Hospice, Keely was able to be discharged and spend Christmas at home with her family.

“On behalf of everyone at St Clare Hospice, I would like to thank you for your kindness and compassion, we simply couldn’t do what we do without you. Your support is invaluable to the future of St Clare and caring for your local community.

“Warmest of wishes,”


Sarah Thompson, CEO
