I would like to start this week’s column by saying a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made a donation to St Barnabas House through either Light Up a Life or our Christmas Appeal during 2017.

Our Light Up a Life remembrance services on Monday, December 11, were well attended with a combined 1,300 people going to the events.

The generosity of those who made a donation to the appeal has helped us to raise an incredible £36,679.82, the most we have ever raised through Light Up a Life and more than enough to pay for two full days of all the care we provide.

Thank you so much for your support.

Similarly, our Christmas Appeal also raised a record total as your donations helped us to raise a fantastic £25,385.60, enough to pay for nearly three full days of the care provided by our 20-bed in-patient unit.

The money donated through the appeals will go directly towards providing our vital hospice care services for local people, both at the hospice itself and out in the local community.

Remember, you can support us by making a donation throughout the year.
