What is the Anniversary Appeal?

Never has the heart and soul of St Wilfrid’s been more evident than during 2020, as our Nurses and Doctors cared for local people through the long months of the pandemic.

For those living alone coping with a terminal illness, often isolated from family, nothing can replace a friendly St Wilfrid’s Nurse arriving at the door, bringing expert care and support. And that’s exactly what our team has been doing, wearing full PPE, every day since this pandemic began. Our whole team has been working incredibly hard to give every patient the same personalised, compassionate care we’ve provided to local people for 40 years.

Help make a difference today

We must fund most of our care from donations and fundraising, but we’ve had a full year of cancelled events and limited community fundraising income, along with our shops being closed much of the time.

It’s had a terrible effect on our voluntary income, in fact, we lose over £4,000 every single day that our shops are closed and events are restricted. You’ve been part of the St Wilfrid’s family that’s kept us going through this last year - thank you.

I hope everyone realises how lucky they are to have St Wilfrid’s to care for them!

St Wilfrid’s has been the magic link that has kept us both going over this last year. I know how important it has been to me to know they are always there. I support them financially, just what we can manage each month because I want to be sure that after I’m gone, they’ll be able to come out to see other people like me.
