Can you give every month to help us be here every day?
Being diagnosed with a terminal illness is devastating, and turns a family’s world upside down. What becomes important is making the most of the days, weeks and months left.
By supporting us with a regular gift today, you will be helping us to ensure we can continue caring for patients and their families, not just today but in the future too.
You can choose to donate as little as £5 a month, which can provide a day of meals for a patient, materials for creative therapy or even pain relieving medication. It’s all set up through direct debit, so it couldn’t be easier for you to help our patients.
By setting up a regular donation to LOROS today, you could provide the comfort and reassurance our patients need at end of life. Make a difference today and for the years to come.
The difficulty we face...
These remain difficult times for us all. The Coronavirus pandemic is our biggest ever challenge. Fundraising is severely interrupted - events have had to be cancelled and our charity shops have been closed to our loyal supporters.
Here at the Hospice, we focused on keeping our patients and staff safe whilst still delivering the best quality care. It has cost us £3.50 per nurse, per week to ensure that we have the wipes, gloves and hand sanitiser to prevent the spread of infection and keep everyone safe.
Our staff have worked around the clock, adapting how they deliver their compassionate care through the barriers that PPE presents. For many, this has been the biggest challenge of all; not being able to hug or hold a hand. Instead, nurses have read final goodbye messages to patients from their loved ones that are unable to visit.. It’s been truly remarkable.
We have approached the lifting of restrictions with optimism and hope. Our shops have been able to reopen, we’re working hard to get our events back on track and we’re excited about the ability to start fundraising in our communities once again. But, every day is still shadowed by the long-term and continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning that your support has never been more appreciated. Your help enables us to be here, providing care for our patients and making a difference when it matters the most. Thank you for choosing LOROS - we’re here because of you.
With your help, we can reduce that risk and continue to be here for patients like Gwen, Richard and Geoff. We have never needed your support more than we do today.
LOROS has made such a difference; it’s been such an exhausting few years.Gwen
