As the clock strikes midnight on January 1st, we all get the chance to have a fresh start on the blank canvas of 2024.
The new year gives many of us the chance to reflect on the changes we want to make in our lives. Setting resolutions and goals that will make us a better version of ourselves than we were last year. While self-improvement is undoubtedly important, what if we approached the new year with a different perspective, one that focuses on thinking of others before ourselves?
At the beginning of a chapter, we don’t always think about the end. However, for those facing incurable illness in your local community, this is not something they can easily ignore.
There is never a good time to say goodbye to someone you love. But our hospice partners provide compassionate care to those who need them most. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Helping those in their care to make the most of every precious moment they have left.
This new year let's consider how we can make a positive impact on our local hospices, who work tirelessly to help those who need it most.
Hospice care goes beyond medical attention; it's about ensuring that individuals facing life-limiting illnesses experience dignity, comfort, and emotional support in their final days. The support network of a hospice stretches far wider than the In-Patient Unit, the services hospices are vast ranging from home care, advice lines and bereavement counselling.
There is no better time than at the start of a new year to set yourself a challenge. To make yourself the best version of you. But you don’t have to run a marathon this year to do something amazing. For just £1 per week, you can play Your Hospice Lottery. It may not seem like much, but the impact your regular support will have on hospice care is priceless.
The funds generated through the lottery players goes directly towards enhancing the quality of care provided to individuals in the hospice. From creating comfortable and peaceful environments to offering additional support services, every pound raised contributes to making a significant difference to those facing the end of life.
Not only are you supporting the patients, but also their families who navigate the challenging journey alongside them. It's a chance to extend a helping hand to those who need it most and create a positive ripple effect in your community.
The beauty of supporting hospice care through a lottery is that it transforms a simple act into a meaningful one. Whether you win or not, your contribution becomes a source of comfort, joy, and hope for individuals at the end of life. It's a way to align your intentions for the new year with a genuine and impactful cause.
As we embark on this new chapter, let's make a collective effort to prioritise compassion and generosity. Playing Your Hospice Lottery is not just about the prizes; it's about contributing to a cause that extends far beyond ourselves. It's a reminder that, in the grand scheme of life, the moments we share and the care we provide to those in need leave a lasting legacy.
