At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site. Also, our hospice shops will be closed for the time being and we have postponed all of our fundraising events that were planned during the next few months.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

Bridlington Tesco Donation Drive

7th October 2019 - 13th October 2019

 

Tesco in Bridlington is holding a donation drive in aid of Saint Catherine’s from Monday October 7 to Sunday October 13.

There will be a ‘Donation Station’ in the Station Approach store where people can drop off bags containing clothing, bric-a-brac, jewellery, accessories, shoes, handbags, belts, DVDs and books.

All the items collected will be sold in Saint Catherine’s shops to raise essential funds for patient care.

Donovan Copley, Tesco community champion, said: “We are looking forward to seeing lots of customers bringing in their donations and we are proud to support Saint Catherine’s in this way.”

The event will coincide with Hospice Care Week – an initiative by Hospice UK which aims to raise awareness about hospice care, how much it costs to provide and what it takes to provide specialist care, free of charge, to patients and families.

At Saint Catherine’s, it costs £5.5 million a year to provide 16 services across an area of 1,600 square miles. These include in-patient care, a Wellbeing Centre, Hospice at Home, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, a lymphoedema clinic, complementary therapies, clinical nurse specialists, social work, counselling and more.

Only 30% of this is funded by Government, with the rest coming from the support of the local community through donations and fundraising.
