While there's no sponsorship required to take part, we would encourage all participants to raise a minimum amount of £57. Simply set up a JustGiving page here and share it with your family and friends to sponsor you. Alternatively, you can set up a Facebook fundraiser, or you can make a personal donation instead. All funds raised will enable Rennie Grove nurses to provide specialist care and support for local adults and children with a life limiting illness.
For example: £57 could fund 2 hours of specialist nursing care in a patients home.
And of course every pound raised above that can help fund additional hours of specialist nursing care.
£100 could fund two Family Support Sessions for a bereaved child enabling us to offer them support when they need it most.
£300 could fund the cost of a series of six one-to-one counselling sessions with a Family Support Services counsellor, helping families to cope with illness and bereavement.
£1,260 could buy a syringe pump – a piece of specialist medical equipment used by our Hospice at Home nurses to help make patients’ final days more comfortable. They are a vital part of giving terminally-ill patients the choice to be cared for at home, if that is their wish.
