What You Can Do This Christmas

St Gemma’s Hospice provides 24-hour care, 7 days a week, including Christmas Day. We can only provide this round-the-clock care thanks to you, our community of supporters.

It costs £25,000 a day to run all of our services at St Gemma’s; to keep our services running from Christmas Eve to New Year will cost over £200,000. As a charity, we will need to raise every penny of this. There are lots of ways that you can get involved to support our local patients and their families at one of the most difficult times in their lives, allowing them to spend Christmas together in comfort – whether it’s at the Hospice or in their own homes.
