We provide specialist palliative care to the Wirral community.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Wirral Hospice St John’s are an adult hospice that provides care for patients with life-limiting illnesses including cancer, heart, liver and kidney disease, respiratory and neurological conditions. As well as caring for our patients, we also provide support for carers and loved ones: families are at the heart of everything we do here at Wirral Hospice St John’s.

Although we do receive some NHS funding, the majority of our income is donated by individuals, community groups, local companies and charitable trusts.

The coronavirus has had a crushing blow on our charity's ability to fundraise but we continue to provide compassionate end-of-life care for our patients and support for their families through this global pandemic.

We are hugely dependent on fundraising to pay for our hospice but as we are unable to raise funds in the usual ways, we have a special ask to see if you can help us.

60% of our money comes from our hospice charity shops, lottery, donations, and fundraising events. Necessary government measures keep us all safe but have affected us in a dramatic way.

Charity shop closures, cancelled events, and having to stop other fundraising initiatives will cause a significant shortfall of at least £280,000 over the next few months. This is a staggering amount of money for us not to have available for our patient care.

Our frontline team are out in force and our behind-the-scenes key workers are carrying our care and support services, just in slightly different ways to normal. We are spending more on PPE and other essential supplies to keep our patients and staff safe in the face of these exceptional circumstances.

In memory of Ken, Mum’s soul mate, our lovely Dad and the 3 MusketEmms amazing Grandad we are very grateful for any help which may allow other families to benefit in the way we have over the last week.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
