How your fundraising helps Saint Michael’s
Saint Michael’s exists to improve the lives of people in the Harrogate district who are affected by terminal illness. But, as an independent charity that receives less than 20 per cent funding from the government, we rely on voluntary donations from people like you to make this happen.
We estimate that at any one time more than 50,000 local people could be affected by terminal illness, whether they are living with it themselves or know someone who is.
In the last five years we have doubled the number of people we care for- now helping more than 2,400 patients and their families each year. But we want to do more.
Firstly, we aim to continue to increase the number of people we can care for directly, but even with our best efforts, we acknowledge that we will never be able to help everyone. That is why we are also committed to working in collaboration with other health and social care organisations and sharing our knowledge and experience with others so that everyone, no matter whether they are cared for by a Hospice or not, has access to quality end of life care.
We receive very little government funding, so we rely on donations from people like you.
