The Difference We & You Make
We provide funding & grants, filling the gap when Hospices are unable to gain funding elsewhere.
We are inspired by the wonderful work Hospices do and our passion is to ensure they do not ever have a need for equipment, they do not ever need to close a bed, to ensure that the running of a Hospice always has enough funds.
You help by donating & fundraising for us and then we distribute the funds to the Hospices that let us know they need our help.
We help by providing funds where it is needed, when it is needed.
Below are a few testimonials from Hospices we would like to share with you.
Thank you. We couldn’t do it without YOU.
Since 2002, we have and continue to provide funds to Hospices that need help!
“Your support, both past and present, has made a tangible difference to our children & young people, all who have life limiting illnesses, enabling us to help them and their families face impossible situations.”
£1936.36 to buy oxygen saturation monitors which are used to assess the pulse rate & oxygen saturation of a patient. In particular, these are ideal for babies and small children.
“You are always the one I turn to in an emergency and you never let me down – thank you so much.”
£1057.36 to buy 4 ventilator tube supports and 4 small mild steel trolleys to aid poorly ventilated children with their breathing.
“We would like to thank you for your generous donation which you sent so quickly to our urgent appeal. Your continued and ongoing support of our children’s hospice is very much appreciated.”
£2,931.63 to buy a new shower/changing trolley for a children’s hospice after their old one had broken. An essential piece of equipment used to move the children in and out of the bathroom which they couldn’t manage without for any length of time.
“Thank you so much for your help which, as always, has been a huge help. The beds will now replace our six year old ones which were not in good state of repair and allow family members to stay with their loved ones overnight at our hospice.”
£3,600 to provide foldaway beds.
“Complimentary therapy is such an important part of palliative care our hospice provides as it is an extremely effective method of symptom relief & relaxation for adults with terminal illnesses who are in constant discomfort or pain. The benefits therapies, such as massage and Reiki bring, are immeasurable.”
£1,000 for 50 hours worth of complimentary therapy which is the equivalent of a 6 session course for 8 people.

£3760.00 for a pair of riser recliner chairs which allows patients to sit up slowly and less painfully.
“The benefits from these mattresses ease aches & pains & reduce bed sores & ulcers. They are electronic and so also help the nurses to move the patient around with ease.”
