A campaign to raise £100,000 to fund 200 nights of essential Hospice at Home care is almost two thirds of its way to completion, one of the fundraisers has announced.
The Help Us Be There campaign was launched in May at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, and Matron of the charity’s community team Lorraine Moth has announced that as of the end of September, £65,000 has been raised.
Every night of care, which is provided both to patients and families, costs the charity £472 per patient.
Moth has thanked the public for the support so far, and took to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire for an interview earlier in the monrh.
The team is now focusing on efforts to raise the final £35,000 needed before Christmas, and hopes that the public will continue to lend their support by making a one-off donation, committing to a regular donation or by throwing a “Host at Home” event.
Arthur Rank Hospice supports people in Cambridgeshire living with a life-limiting illness and those who need end-of-life care.
Its services are provided free of charge to patients and their families and its aim is to provide the highest quality care, helping them to help make every moment count.
