Emergency Fund Appeal

Thank you for your interest in Overgate Hospice’s Emergency Fund Appeal. The Hospice faces its biggest challenge in its thirty nine year history and are in desperate need of your help.  

A group of likeminded supporters have joined together to pledge and seek support for the Hospice during this this time of national emergency; our crucial Hospice services are needed more than ever as Overgate supports the NHS in the fight against COVID-19. By continuing to provide beds and specialist clinical care to relieve pressure on the hospitals, as well as working alongside NHS teams to advise and support with the setting up of new, temporary palliative care COVID-19 wards in the community and launching a specialist helpline for professionals and patients, Overgate Hospice is working on the front line.

Sadly, due to government guidelines and social distancing measures, all of the the Hospice’s fundraising events have been cancelled and their 14 charity shops have been closed.  This has resulted in huge financial losses for the Hospice, who rely on the public and community for over 70% of their running costs

Join the support towards the Hospice’s running costs during the current pandemic so that Overgate can be there in the future for the patients and families that need and rely on these vital services.

Your donation will make a real difference, for example:
