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.
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.

Steve

Steve was ‘astounded’ to win an amazing £11,500 through the Saint Catherine’s lottery!

He said: “I had a big win a few years ago of £2,000 and spent it all on Premium Bonds for my kids and grandkids, who then went on to have some smaller wins themselves – so the luck was passed on!”

Melanie

Melanie scooped £1,500 on the Saint Catherine’s lottery!

“I am so happy to support the hospice. My father was looked after by Saint Catherine’s in 2011 and passed away peacefully there. My sister and I will always be grateful for the fabulous care (and food!) he received from the staff and volunteers and for the joined-up way the hospice – and related services – operates. This made a rubbish situation bearable. Thank you.” 

Jackie

Jackie won big on the Saint Catherine’s lottery just in time for Christmas!

“It’s absolutely amazing to win – and just before Christmas as well! I’m going to share it with my three children. I am quite lucky generally, but if I ever win on the lottery it’s usually just £10.”

Michele

Michele, of Sherburn, was both shocked and delighted to win the weekly jackpot!

“When I got the call to say I’d won I couldn’t believe it. I’d just had a massive car bill and the car insurance was due! I’ll probably have a weekend away with my husband too. “

Lesley

Lesley Taylor had been playing the lottery for 20 years and was ‘dumbfounded’ to discover she’d won.

“It’s such a small amount each week – not even the price of a coffee in town – and it feels like I’m doing my bit towards helping people”

John

Retired teacher John Ward, of Filey, was delighted to win the weekly £1,500 1st prize.

“I think Saint Catherine’s does a wonderful job and I’ve been supporting them for many years now.”

John’s winnings will go towards a trip away for him and his wife.

David

David Senior of Pickering had only been playing a few weeks when he struck it lucky and got the top prize.

“This is the biggest win I’ve ever had – I’m over the moon!” – he added that the win will go towards a holiday in Spain with his wife Hannah and daughter Amelia (pictured).
