Saint Francis Hospice: powered by you and I

There are more than 200 hospices across the UK, providing care for over 200,000 people living with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
 
Saint Francis Hospice is your local Hospice, serving the communities of Havering, Brentwood, Redbridge, West Essex, and Barking and Dagenham. 
 
This year, Hospice Care Week starts on 7th October. During this celebratory week, Saint Francis Hospice is going to be dispelling myths, sharing stories, and highlighting why your support is so vital to the charity now — and in the future.
 
It takes over 250 staff, more than 800 volunteers, and £7.8m a year for Saint Francis Hospice to keep going. Volunteers collectively give up 265,000 hours of their time each year, saving the Hospice £1.5m over 12 months. The Hospice aspires to have 1,000 of them by 2020. 
 
Saint Francis Hospice only receives 27% of its total running costs from the government, so relies heavily on the public to keep the money rolling in. The Hospice’s care is free to receive, but it’s not cheap to provide. 
 
The Hospice doesn’t only provide care for people living with life-limiting illnesses, but everyone around them, offering bereavement therapy for families — often young children who have lost a parent.
 
Saint Francis Hospice is an extraordinary place that is very much about living rather than dying — contrary to popular belief.
 
Join Saint Francis Hospice this October in showing what it takes to ensure it survives.
