Good news! We have been accepted onto this year's Big Give Christmas Challenge, meaning any donation made to us through the Big Give website on selected dates has the chance of being doubled!
All money donated through the Big Give will go towards caring for our patients and their families.
Put simply, if you donate to us through the Big Give, your donation to the hospice could be doubled!
What difference will my donation make? Harry Catlow from Accrington is cared for at home by East Lancashire Hospice at Home team. His wife Clare said: "It’s a great relief to know someone’s there, Harry’s safe and being looked after. It means I can go to bed and get some sleep without worrying. I was going downhill trying to care for him on my own but the hospice has helped to improve our family life. I’m a different person and more able to care for Harry because I’ve slept well. I don’t know what I’d do without the hospice. I wouldn’t have been able to keep up caring for him on my own."
June Law from Hyndburn is thankful for Hospice at Home. She said: “When Alan was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he didn’t want to go into hospital. I made a promise to him that he could stay at home.The hospice team offer more help than I’ve dreamed of asking for. They’re always there to answer questions and put your mind at rest. They’re always professional and more importantly they don’t just care for Alan, they think about the whole family."
