For the last 40 years, the local community has been there for Prospect Hospice so that they can be there for those who need their help at the end of their life. For that, the hospice wants to say ‘thanks a million’.
From the very first day of Prospect Hospice, the care they’ve been able to give local patients is only possible thanks to the generous donations of local people, groups and businesses. For those who have held bake sales, run marathons, jumped out of planes and raised money in all manner of ways, Prospect Hospice is saying, ‘thanks a million’.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the hospice. While services to patients and their families have continued throughout the pandemic, hospice income dried up almost overnight back in March 2020. With its 18 charity shops closed as well as events and traditional fundraising activities cancelled, Prospect Hospice has had to look at new ways of fundraising, taking activity online. Local supporters have continued to give in any way they can too and, for that, Prospect Hospice wants to say, ‘thanks a million’.
But the truth is, this last year, the hospice’s income hasn’t matched its outgoings. To make sure the hospice can continue to offer the same standard of care to all of those that need it in the local area, they need to raise £1m over the next few months, until traditional fundraising can resume.
Over 25 and 26 April, Prospect Hospice will be launching a 36 hour online fundraiser to raise as much money as possible and all you need to do is let Prospect Hospice set up an online fundraising page for you, sit back and wait for the page link, then share it with friends and family during the live campaign.
