Make a difference with every pedal!

Your support means people can make regular day visits to the hospice for social activities, physiotherapy, exercise classes, spiritual support or counselling. At St Barnabas patients can make short stays to help manage complex physical symptoms, returning home more comfortable and relaxed.


could mean a family in crisis receive a visit from a nurse during the night, reducing the chance of an unnecessary hospital admission


provide an exercise class for a group of patients, helping them to stay active and meet other people going through similar experiences


is enough to give a patient a whole day of hospice care at home, surrounded by home comforts and the people they love
