Christmas Appeal Donate Help us keep caring this Christmas Many of us are looking forward to having a big and bright Christmas in 2021 with those we care and love the most. However, for patients living with a life-limiting illness, they still need their local hospice and our amazing team will still be caring for local people this Christmas. Donate today As an independent charity, we’re not part of the NHS and two thirds of our income is only made possible due to voluntary donations from communities across Ayrshire and Arran. It would be so appreciated if you could consider making a donation to pay for just a little of the nursing care that our team will provide to patients during the Christmas season. Most people will want to be at home for Christmas if they possibly can and our Specialist Community Nursing Team will be working hard in December and throughout the holidays to help people to stay at home, where possible, with their loved ones. But some people will be with us over Christmas – and so our nursing team will try to make the hospice as homely and festive as possible. We know that for many families, this will be their last Christmas together but with your help we can try to make it an extra special Christmas to remember. Your donation will make such a difference this Christmas A donation of £20 could help pay for a Christmas Day celebration for two patients. A donation of £50 would enable a patient’s family to stay for two nights, close to their loved one at Christmas, in our ‘Wee House’. A donation of £100 would help towards the cost of a home visit by our Specialist Community Nursing Team, helping a patient to be well enough to stay home with their family. A gift from you today will pay for some of that vital nursing time this Christmas, at no cost to our patients or their families. Please, give what you can. With your gift, we can help patients and families across Ayrshire and Arran create special memories this Christmas and make the most of the time they have together, no matter how long or short that time may be. Donate today Thank you.
