There are lots of ways you can support us and help make a difference.
We are here for the people of North Derbyshire and beyond.
Shopping with us or donating items for us to sell helps fund our compassionate care.
Our care is always in high demand. But this winter we are facing the greatest demand on our services yet. We are preparing for another increase in COVID-19 cases, as well as winter flu, which will mean more beds will be needed for those too unwell to be cared for at home.
Not only that, but we also need to keep our other vital services running so that we can support patients and families at home at all stages of their diagnosis. As the pandemic continues, so does the concern for fundraising the huge amount needed to care for everybody in need this winter.
By making a donation, you’ll be helping Ashgate Hospice provide the care that so many people in our community will need over the coming winter months. You’ll also be helping Ashgate take the pressure off our local hospitals this winter.
A gift of £25 will help us do everything we can, through all hours of the day and night, to support people struggling with a life-limiting illness in our community — just as we have for over thirty years.
Please give what you can today – thank you.
“Dad’s last wish was to die at home, and that wish was granted by Ashgate Hospice. They also gave me the greatest gift imaginable – precious time with my father in his final days to make lasting memories and say a proper goodbye. Thanks to Ashgate, Dad was comfortable and had the best possible quality of life right up until the end.”
Sara, daughter of Alan Slinn – Ashgate Hospice patient.
