NHS Breast Friend Winners Announced
From St Mary’s….
We believe our nurses and health care workers are heroes. They go above and beyond, in good times and bad, to deliver the care our patients need, whether that be in the Hospice, or patients’ homes.
So many of our supporters have asked us how they can contribute directly to support the care our heroes provide. In response to that, we’re launching a new fundraising programme — which allows you to directly ‘sponsor our nurses’.
We’re proud to introduce you to Lauren. Lauren is one of four of our nurses including Marie, Solveig and Rebecca who are kindly featured in this programme. These wonderful women represent everything that’s best about St Mary’s Hospice. Their commitment and dedication to ensuring they not only give expert care but also to treat every single individual with respect, dignity, and love is truly humbling. We cannot change the outcome but we can change the journey and that can make a tremendous difference to both our patients and their families. In 2021/2022, 8 out of 10 patients’ care will be funded via voluntary income.
As shown in How Are We Funded? Several of our vital income streams are in their very nature unpredictable, and covid certainly shone a spotlight on this vulnerability. It is imperative we balance some diverse income streams with some that are predictable, scalable, and sustainable. By donating a little every month, via our ‘Sponsor a Nurse’ campaign, you can give us that degree of security that makes it easier for us to plan the care we give.
