Be a Champion...

…and help build your new hospice!  

Right now, our nurses can’t help everyone facing death or dying who needs us. That’s why we have already begun to build a new hospice, so more families can stay together, surrounded by expert care and support, and make the most of the time they have left.  

On the 22 May we’re running an appeal, asking our whole community to help us raise the final funds we need to build the new hospice that will provide even more care to our community. Will you help us by becoming a Champion for this unique appeal?

Be a Champion!


As a Champion you will join other Champions over a 36 hour period to ask your friends, colleagues and contacts to show their support and donate to St Catherine’s by sending them messages via text, WhatsApp, Facebook or email. Our team will do all the preparation, set up your fundraising page and help you with wording.

Every pound given during the 36 hours appeal will be matched, doubling the value and impact of donations and making an even bigger difference to the people we support.  

Please join us as a Champion and together we can help raise the final funds we need to complete our new hospice. 

Please say YES and sign up now and our team will be in touch with all the details you need around two weeks before the event.
