Christmas Appeal 2021
9th Nov 2021 - 31st Jan
Hello, I am Jon Anderson and I am a nurse at St Peter & St James Hospice. We are so very grateful for the support we have had from local people over the past year. However I must tell you that we are not out of the woods yet, in fact, we know that there are many more very tough weeks ahead for the local people we care for.
This Christmas, when families can hopefully gather together once again after missing out last year, will be wonderful for many but extremely difficult for those with a terminal illness who face the end of their lives, and may still need to isolate from their loved ones.
2021 has been another very difficult year for our hospice, with many fundraising events and activities cancelled. As a charity, reliant on local fundraising and donations, the pandemic has been devastating. We would be so grateful if you could make a donation for anything you feel able to give this Christmas.
And if you can also include a message alongside your donation, something honest and warm from you to our patients, that would be wonderful. Any message you write, we will copy on to our paper baubles, and we have all volunteered to stay late with the sticky tape and ribbon to hang them on our Christmas tree – I hope yours will be there!
Thank you, again, for your friendship and kindness. From the whole team here, we wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Christmas.
