Show sup­port for our events at Christ­mas time

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

AS we turn the cor­ner in to Novem­ber, and the leaves are fall­ing from the trees, we all feel a mix­ture of ex­cite­ment that Christ­mas is on the way and panic that the year is com­ing to a close and we still have lots of things we want to do be­fore the win­ter well and truly ar­rives.

Sadly, for some fam­i­lies across Mersey­side, the win­ter months will be spent with a loved one here at the hospice.

Our nurses and vol­un­teers will also be here to hold their hand and try to make their Christ­mas as spe­cial as pos­si­ble.

Our big ask from you this Christ­mas is to please come along and en­joy one of our fan­tas­tic Christ­mas events – we have sev­eral ex­cit­ing and fun-packed fes­tiv­i­ties com­ing up and one of them is sure to be up your street.

We’d love it if you could join us to help make this Christ­mas ex­tra spe­cial for our pa­tients and their fam­i­lies. Christ­mas Fam­ily Film Day

Laura Smith, com­mu­nity fundraiser, said: “We or­gan­ise events through­out the year to raise vi­tal funds for the hospice as it costs £8,750 ev­ery day to keep our ser­vices run­ning.
