Dorothy House is our local hospice, and for the next 36 hours I am proud to be doing all I can to help them raise £500,000 so they can continue to be there for those facing death, dying and bereavement across our community.
Over 50,000 local residents have benefited from Dorothy House’s care over the last 46 years. During the darkest times of peoples’ lives, their incredible team of nurses, medics, carers, therapists and counsellors have brought compassion and outstanding care to help people live well for as long as possible, and have a peaceful, dignified death.
All of their services are provided for free, wherever and whenever they are needed.
But the need for their expert care is rising at a rapid rate, and they urgently need to grow their services to make sure no-one has to face death alone. To do so, they need to raise an additional £2 million over the next 3 years, and this appeal is the first step in that journey.
By supporting this appeal today, you will be helping to ensure Dorothy House is Always Here for us – for you, for me, for our whole community.
