Life as we know it has recently been flipped on its head. Being able to spend time with loved ones, go out for dinner and getting your haircut all seems like a distant memory. However, for many hospices, it is business as usual. They’re still providing essential palliative and end of life care for many patients as well as supporting families of those affected by life-limiting illnesses. Many fundraising events have had to be cancelled and hospices are urgently appealing for your support now more than ever.
The Covid-19 pandemic has detrimentally impacted local hospice funding. To continue providing their support to hundreds of families, they heavily rely on fundraisers and fundraising events. This means many hospices have been left struggling to provide care for their patients and some have even closed their doors until things become more stable. If you follow any hospice on social media, you have probably spotted their urgent appeals and virtual fundraising events. These can be a great opportunity to get involved, have fun, and help continue support hospices across the country.
Similarly, to the fundraising events, local hospices rely on generous donations to keep their services running. With a large amount of UK workers being furloughed, a lot of these donations have come to a grinding halt. Every hospice receives funding; however, this is only a fraction and they encourage donations of every amount to continue providing their services free of charge.
