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.

ROTARY100 pledges to raise £100,000 for local charities – including Saint Catherine’s

May 24th 2021

An ambitious project has been launched by Scarborough’s Rotary groups aimed at raising £100,000 for charity in celebration of their centenary year.

The year-long ROTARY100 project will run from July 2021 to mark 100 years since the start of Rotary in Scarborough, which began in 1921.

The town has three Rotary groups, which are The Rotary Club of Scarborough, Scarborough Cavaliers and the affiliated Scarborough Inner Wheel. These will join forces for ROTARY100 under the theme of ‘fun, friendship and fundraising’.

During the year, the clubs will aim to get 100 businesses, groups and/or individuals on board with the project, each being encouraged to raise £1,000.

The proceeds will be shared between Saint Catherine’s Hospice, York Teaching Hospital Charity (Scarborough Hospital) and Scarborough YMCA who have each identified an important project they would wish to undertake to help people in the Scarborough community.

Nigel Wood, incoming President, The Rotary Club of Scarborough, said: Rotary in Scarborough has a long tradition of helping our community. We want to celebrate our centenary with a programme of events which are fun, foster new friendships and raise much needed funds for three very worthy causes which are at the core of our community.”

Tracy Calcraft, Income and Business Services Director at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the ROTARY100 celebrations and are looking forward to a year of fun and fundraising. The money raised will make such a huge difference to patient care and we are looking forward to seeing what this special year brings. Thank you to everyone at Rotary in Scarborough for your wonderful support.”

Lucy Clegg, charity fundraising manager at York Teaching Hospital Charity, said: “York Teaching Hospital Charity, on behalf of Scarborough Hospital, is absolutely delighted to have been chosen to be part of such an exciting project. We are excited to see the project unfold and look forward to seeing the impact of the money raised at the hospital and further afield in our Scarborough community.”

Graham Ibbotson, Scarborough YMCA theatre manager, said: “We are really excited to be part of the ROTARY100 project and look forward to a year of fun, friendship and fundraising with the community of Scarborough.”

The ROTARY100 team will be making contact with organisations in the Scarborough area in the coming weeks about how they can get involved and support the initiative.

There is also a packed programme of Rotary events for the coming year, with more details to be released in due course.
