We need your support, more now than ever before

Covid-19 is all over the news. We are all adapting and taking advice and guidance from the UK Government, ensuring that this virus can be contained as much as possible.

At Weldmar Hospicecare, our core services continue, as demand for our services increase.

Our clinical teams are on the front line. They are continuing to provide vital end of life care to the very people who are most vulnerable and at risk from Covid-19. We’re already looking after these patients, and we need this to continue.

We recognise that we are going to have to change our care models over the coming weeks and months and adapt to new ways of working to continue the safety and importantly, the care, to all of our patients and their loved ones. We know we’re going to have to change how we do this, but we don’t want this decision to be forced because of the lack of income. We need the reassurance that no matter how we provide our services over the coming months, we have the money to do it. We need to ensure that we have the financial support to care for everyone who needs us. But we can’t do this alone.

Following Government advice and to protect our patients and their loved ones, our workforce and our supporters, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all fundraising events and activities until the end of May. This date may be extended if we feel this is necessary. This will have a massive impact on our income.

We have also had to close our chain of 26 charity shops and outlets which also provides a vital and necessary income stream to continue our services each and every day, to everyone who needs us most. Being closed for a minimum of a month will lose us in the region of £300,000.

Covid-19 will have a significant impact on our fundraising and retail income. But, our care will continue. We still need to raise £18,000 every single day, so we can be here for everyone who needs us, today, tomorrow and over the coming weeks and months.

We are asking for your help. We know that everyone is going to be feeling the financial impact of Covid-19 but simply, without you, we will not be able to continue our care.

We’ve created several ideas and virtual fundraising options, which you can participate in anytime over the coming months. Some of these can be done from the comfort of your own home, and others will allow you the continue getting fresh air whilst helping us to continue our care right in your community.
