Ashgate Hospice provides specialist paliative care (to reduce pain rather than cure) and support for adults and their families both at the Hospice and within the local community.
I watched the following Ashgate Hospice short film whilst I was there and I must warn you it brought me to tears. The film explains perfectly what the Hospice does and shows the difference each and every supporter of the Hospice makes to the lives of the local people and community.
I was absolutely astounded to learn that it costs well over £4 million each and every year, to provide this service and that a massive £2.7 million needs to be raised solely through fundraising and individual contributions.
Without YOU and YOUR support and help they simply would not be able to continue providing this care and vital service needed by the local community.
You can help in a variety of ways and just a few are shown below, please click on the links for more information;
Join in the fun from just £1 per week for a randomly allocated 5 digit number. The draw takes place every week and there is £1250 worth of prizes to be won.
Organise a Dinner Party that actually makes a difference!! A great way to socialise with friends, show off your culinary skills and raise money at the same time.
Ashgate Hospice has charity shops throughout North Derbyshire, in Bakewell, Bolsover, Chesterfield, Claycross, Dronfield and Staveley.
May 15, 2011. A 5 mile road race for Men Only!
June 25, 2011. A 6.5 or 13 mile walk for Ladies Only!
For more information on these and many other upcoming events held in the aid of fundraising for the Hospice, please see our events page.
Finally please help support our great Ashgate Hospice in any way you can!
