We provide support, care and hope to local people and those who love them.


We are immensely proud to pioneer St Mary’s Hospice Pay for a Day Campaign in 2022!

Since 1988 St Mary’s Hospice has been open to patients and their loved ones. Now, more than ever the charity needs our support to keep on providing care, comfort and support to the patients, their families and carers. The incredible team of staff and volunteers help with end of life care, symptom management, Living Well services, respite care and family bereavement support.

St Mary’s Hospice is a charity and their services are free of charge to our community but they are not free to provide.

It costs over £3.5 million a year to keep the hospice running, with less than 18% of their costs being covered by the NHS.

This equates to £9.5k a day 🤯.

This means that 8 out of 10 of the patients they care for in 2022 will be directly funded by our community.

Our Pitch Up Promise for 2022 is to help St Mary’s continue to be here for our loved ones when they need them most.
Our aim is to help pay for as many days as possible.

Local supports local.
