We Raise funds for Dorchester Festival to support Dorchester Abbey and Restore

I am raising funds for the Dorchester Festival which supports Dorchester Abbey and Sue Ryder by abseiling the 100ft tall Abbey tower.

I last abseiled on a school trip to Snowdonia in about 1981. I am not keen on heights. 

Thank you for your support!

 Here are some examples of what Sue Ryder could do with your donation:

£5 could provide a memory box for a bereaved child. They can store sentimental trinkets inside to help them cope with their loss.

£12 could pay for four hand-held fans so patients can self-manage breathlessness caused by some cancer treatments.

£18 is the average value of a bag of donated items sold in our shops.

£23 could pay for an hour of befriending. Befrienders are there to talk, listen or simply sit beside someone who is feeling lonely.

£40 could buy a TENS machine, a non-drug treatment to help patients control pain.

£50 could pay for an advice session for families. Our family support teams offer advice on everything from financial worries to future care.

£100 could pay for a visit from our clinical nurse specialists. They work closely with families, GPs and community teams to ensure patients receive expert care personalised to their needs.

£150 could ensure a Hospice at Home nurse has a mobile working bag with all the kit they need to care for someone out in the community.

£500 could pay for a bed for a day of inpatient care for a hospice patient.

£2,500 could buy a pressure-relieving mattress to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible when movement is limited.

£8000 Pays for Nettlebed Hospice for a Day
