Help us pay for Christmas Day

Every minute, every hour and every day our nurses are there to care. This Christmas, just like all the Christmases before, will be a very special day for all who spend it with us at St Cuthbert's Hospice. Decorations will be hung, trees will be trimmed, presents will be exchanged, crackers will be pulled, and our nurses will do all of the little things they usually do to make sure it is a day filled with treasured memories.

This year has once again been incredibly challenging for those in our care, their families and friends. Many families are aware that this will sadly be the last Christmas that they share with their loved ones. We are determined to do all we can, to make this Christmas memorable and full of love. To do this, we need your help.

It costs £2,300 per day to provide the special care that we do at the Hospice. Please donate what you can to help pay for Christmas Day.

We just wanted to share with you a few words from Joanne, Senior Staff Nurse as to what Christmas Day means here at the Hospice:

"Christmas at St Cuthbert's means business as usual for the nurses, chefs, housekeeping and all the other members of the team who keep things running. But it is a very special time, and an honour and privilege to be able to spend it with people who may not be well enough to have their usual celebrations.

On Christmas Eve, the nightshift staff get very excited playing Santa and leave Christmas presents from the Hospice at the bedside of each patient ready for Christmas morning. Each room has its own little Christmas tree with lights, and patients and families are welcome to add their own special decorations or to bring things in from home to make the rooms more festive.

Christmas morning is a happy time and we'll have lots of smiles, mince pies and Christmas songs. Our fabulous kitchen staff will prepare a Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings for those well enough to enjoy one. We are all aware that Christmas will be tinged with sadness, as for many of our patients this will be the last one they spend with loved ones. This is what makes our job such a special one, to be able to help families to make those moments that matter and make every day count."

Any donation, small or large, will go towards paying for Christmas Day.
