At St Clare Hospice, we believe everyone’s journey towards the end of life should be dignified, comfortable and free from worry and distress.
Our vision is to be able to offer a complete end-of-life care service; one that combines expert professional clinical care with emotional and practical support to every local person who needs it, not only here at the Hospice, but in people’s homes.
But with a limited amount of NHS funding, we are reliant on our supporters more than ever to help us raise the vital voluntary income we need each and every year to help pay for the care we know is so desperately needed by our community.
Every ticket really will make a difference to the people who need our support, so please buy yours today.
Without your help we wouldn’t be able to be there for people like Jim Miles, who benefitted from the care and support of our multi-disciplinary team throughout the latter stages of his battle with a brain tumour.
His wife Cathy said: “There was no red tape, or being passed from pillar to post. St Clare was just there. They gave me the confidence to know that all the support was there for me to care for Jim, and in the end I had no fear of keeping him at home, where he wanted to be.
I’m almost certain that had St Clare not been part of our journey, guiding us, advising us and caring for us all, with a hug at the end of each visit, it might have been a very different experience.”
Every ticket you buy means we can continue providing expert care and support to people like Jim and his family across West Essex and the border of East Hertfordshire.
Your help means so much.
Spring Raffle tickets cost just £1 each and are available until Tuesday, March 22 from all eight of the Hospice shops, as well as the St Clare reception. Alternatively you can call 01279 773730 to order your Spring Raffle tickets now!
