One in five of our patients is cared for thanks to a gift left in a will.
Are you missing someone special?
Tuesday April 30, 2019
This is a time of year of when family and friends are in our thoughts. If there is someone special who is no longer with you this year, Saint Michael's invites you to make a special dedication to show that you are thinking about them.
Make your dedication today for our online Garden of Light to keep their memory shining brightly, with the option to upload a favourite picture.
By making a donation, you can help Saint Michael’s to continue caring for local families living with terminal illness or bereavement.
Pay tribute to someone that you will be missing this year with a dedication in the Saint Michael’s Garden of Light and their legacy can shine on. Make a donation on their behalf and your gift will give support and care to local people when they need it most.
A £25 donation could help a carer or family member to receive essential emotional and practical support when it is most needed.
Our special support gives carers a safe space to meet others in a similar situation, to share experiences, access expert advice and information and provide some essential respite from their everyday responsibilities.
A £50 donation could help a child or young person to live with the death of a loved one, with a one to one support session with an experienced support worker.
Our support workers are specially trained to help children and young people live with the changes that a person’s death has brought to their life and find ways to express and manage their grief. This might include talking through their feelings in a safe environment, creating meaningful artwork, making memory jars or other activities.
Your gift may also help us support children and young people who are coming to terms with the fact that someone close to them is dying.
A £100 donation could help someone access support from a range of experts during a day visit to our hospice
Spending the day at Saint Michael’s helps people with any terminal illness to manage their physical symptoms and enhance their feeling of wellbeing. As well as receiving expert medical care and support, a visit to day therapy allows patients people the chance to relax, unwind and feel more like themselves for a couple of hours.
