Hello and welcome to the fundraising pages for the St John’s Hospice.

As Community Fundraiser for St John’s I have the opportunity to meet every day marvellous people from our Doncaster community and beyond who are doing wonderful things to support our Hospice.

The Hospice is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Trust (RDaSH) and this currently costs £2.7million a year just to run.

Our fundraising campaign over the last year has highlighted many of the services provided here so more people understand and know how to access them. This is hugely important to us as fundraising really is about partnerships.

People who know about what we do, as well as those who may never have had any contact with us, are part of the continuing work to raise our profile and a greater understanding of how hospice services can help.

Donations and legacies fund – amongst many other things – additional services patients can enjoy including complementary therapies, arts and crafts sessions and hairdressing facilities.

With our fundraisers’ help we are also able to ensure that St John’s has the highest standard of equipment and support services. For example the specialist mattresses which contribute to the well-being and comfort of our patients are so important, as is the flexibility to create special moments in a building where every moment matters.

St John’s is also the hub for Hospice at Home care and the St John’s Information and Support Centre.

To continue our commitment to deliver with compassion and the best of care hospice services that make a difference every day, we will always need the support of our fundraisers.

To find out more about how to help us please contact me on 01302 796662 or 01302 796666 or email me at lindsey.richards@nhs.net

Thank you to all our fundraisers – past, present and future.
