Dear Reader

St Cather­ine’s Hospice is close to the hearts of many peo­ple in Scar­bor­ough and along the York­shire coast. But for those who don’t have an in­volve­ment, or know much about it – or think that “some­one else” will put in the ef­fort – then next week is the time to take ac­tion. The hospice – just like scores around the coun­try – needs ev­ery penny and ev­ery bit of help it can get. Ev­ery year it has to raise £5.5m through fundraising – £10,000 ev­ery day. Seventy per cent of that comes through the gen­eros­ity of in­di­vid­u­als, cor­po­rate part­ners and or­gan­i­sa­tions. Cur­rently, 30 or so hardy souls are trekking in the At­las Moun­tains in Morocco to raise funds. In Hospice Care Week, 8-14 Oc­to­ber, St Cather­ine’s is en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic to sup­port it by do­nat­ing, of­fer­ing to vol­un­teer, or help­ing how­ever they can. There’s an open day, re­cruit­ment event and much more. See page 11, and our web­site for per­sonal sto­ries of some of those who’ve been helped.
