Why fundraise for St Barnabas House?

It costs nearly £10million every year to provide hospice care for local people. Only 22% comes from central government, the rest comes from the amazing donations we receive. We couldn’t do it without you.

By fundraising just £100 your donation could mean a new patient has a home visit from a Community Nurse Specialist – assessing symptoms, providing emotional support, and helping plan for the future.
