Could you share the warmth this winter?

If you are in the really fortunate position where you receive the Government’s winter fuel allowance but don’t actually need it, would you consider donating all or part of your allowance to our Share the Warmth fund?

By making a donation you will be helping to provide warm and welcoming care to patients, their families, volunteers and staff who use or support Rennie Grove services at Grove House, St Albans.

Poppy Montgomery-Ward, Clinical Service Manager at Grove House said: “Patients and their families can always be sure of a warm welcome at Grove House. Located next to St Albans City Hospital, it’s the heartbeat of our day services providing practical and social support for local people from point of diagnosis of cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

“Whether our patients or their families and carers are seeking clinical care and advice or emotional support, our team of specialists is on hand to help. All our services are designed to enhance patients’ well-being and give them a choice about the support they need, helping them to develop confidence in managing and living well with their illness.

“Our services are provided at no cost to our patients and families, but there is a cost attached to keeping patients, often with low immune systems, warm throughout the winter. This is where you can make a difference. By donating to our Share the Warmth campaign, you will help ensure that vulnerable patients can continue to enjoy warmth and crucial support at Grove House.”

You can donate part or all of your winter fuel allowance by visiting www.justgiving.com/campaign/sharethewarmth or by sending a cheque (made payable to Rennie Grove Hospice Care) to Share the Warmth Campaign, Fundraising Department, Grove House, Waverley Road, St Albans AL3 5QX.

“We welcome donations from anyone – not just those in receipt of the Government’s winter fuel allowance,” Poppy added.

Thank you for sharing the warmth.
