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.

Make a Will Week raises £18,530

September 17th 2019

Saint Catherine’s Make a Will Week 2019 has been declared a huge success after it raised £18,530 for patient care.

The week-long event took place at the end of April and involved solicitors giving their time and expertise for free to draw up wills in return for a donation.

Law firms took part across the whole area covered by Saint Catherine’s, including Scarborough, Whitby, Hunmanby, Filey, Malton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside, Bridlington and Driffield.

Tracy Calcraft, income and business services director at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are always very grateful for the continued support of the solicitors who take part, our supporters who patiently wait for April to come around each year to review their wills and new participants to the scheme.”

Jessica Walker, of Tubbs & Co, said: “People ring us all year round to ask about Make a Will Week – it’s always very well supported.

“This year’s total is amazing – Saint Catherine’s is a local charity which is close to everyone’s heart.”

The date is already in the diary for next year’s Make a Will Week – the week commencing April 20. Look out for more information in the New Year.
