Hospice supporters urged to join new campaign
10:40am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
HOSPICE supporters are being urged to give regularly and secure the long-term future of patient care in mid Cheshire.
St Luke’s Hospice, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has set up a regular giving camopaign to help fund the £6,500 it needs each day.
Weaver Vale MP Graham Evans visited the hospice, based in Winsford, and is urging residents to sign up to give as little as £2 a month by Direct Debit.
“Over the last 25 years, the hospice has been indebted to its wonderful and dedicated network of supporters,” he said.
“Thanks to your ongoing support the hospice has touched the lives of thousands of families, providing care to people from all across mid and south Cheshire so I would encourage all supporters to help ensure that continues for another 25 years and beyond by giving what they can.”
A donation of £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 while £20 a month, over 12 months, would enable a patient to receive one day of round the clock, intensive nursing care.
Claire Langston, St Luke’s regular giving development manager, said: “Regular Giving enables us to sustain our future with more confidence and reach more local people and their families and friends.
