The past year has been difficult for many, so were aiming to reach as many people experiencing loss as possible. We want to take away some of the tough things that come with losing a loved one, so that families can focus on the most important - love.

Story

Like many people I grew my hair during lockdown. Whilst contemplating a restyle I've decided to go the distance and Brave the Shave

As a District Nurse in Cheltenham I see everyday how vital Sue Ryder Services are. From palliative support via their day hospice, to expert medical and nursing care at Leckhampton Court. 

Community Nursing teams in Cheltenham and throughout Gloucestershire work tirelessly to support people to stay at home at the end of life, and avoid unecessary hospital admission. We are unable to do this alone and rely on the services provided by Sue Ryder, with a special mention to the amazing Hospice at Home team, to ensure people are safe and supported  in their preferred place of care.

Below explains how your donation will help:

The room someone dies in doesn't have to be a sombre place. It can be full of music, much-loved pets, or the people who mean the most. Wherever someone spends their final days, you can help give them a better goodbye, by supporting Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court today. We'll handle the scary stuff, taking the pain, stress, and uncertainty away. This leaves families free to focus on what's really important love. So please, send a gift today, and help fill the room with love.Of course, love can come with tears, laughter, memories and more. There are many ways to say goodbye. With your help, we'll find out what's best for a family and fill the room with love.With many health conditions going untreated over the last year, we believe more people will need our care in the coming months. And 3 in 4 people would prefer to die at home or in a hospice. So your support really is more important than ever.
