Three Worcestershire hospices - who together support more than 4,600 patients and their loved ones in the county each year - have joined forces to encourage support from corporate partners.
St Richard’s in Worcester, KEMP in Kidderminster and Primrose in Bromsgrove provide free, expert care to adults living with life-limiting illness and offer support to their families. Together they cost over £10m each year to run and rely on donations for 72% of their income.
St Richard’s Fundraising Director, Tricia Cavell explained, “Together the three hospices make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of patients and their loved ones every year. We all strive to improve patients’ quality of life, helping them live as fully as they can to the end of their lives, however long that may be. The majority of hospice care is in people’s own homes, but patients are also supported in other places as such day centres, in-patient units or nursing homes. “
She added, “Hospices are independent charities at the heart of their communities and rely on donations to continue their care. Our business partners can help make a difference to the one in three people who will be touched by hospice care. Whether making a straight forward donation, taking on a team-building challenge, attending an event, taking on a volunteering project or choosing Worcestershire Hospices as your Charity of the Year – we can work with you all the way to ensure success for all involved.”
