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.

Mum and son, 7, join forces to raise hospice funds

July 6th 2020

A mum and son are gearing up to run and cycle 13 miles together to raise money for patient care at Saint Catherine’s.

On September 12, Nerys Nichols will be running and her seven-year-old son Joshua will be cycling a half marathon from Howden to Newport and back.

They are doing this to say thank you for the care received by Nerys’s mother-in-law Elaine, who was looked after by Saint Catherine’s during the last days of her fight with cancer.

Nerys said: “I can speak for my husband and all his family when I say that we will never forget the care and compassion you showed for Elaine. Although she was only there for a few days, your kindness for Elaine and to all of us who stayed with her until the end was incredible, so thank you all so much.”

Nerys added: “I’m glad to be able to challenge myself and give something substantial back. It’s been a personal goal of mine for a while and now seems to be the right time.”
