Sponsor A Hospice Nurse
The coronavirus pandemic has been extremely challenging for us at Southern Area Hospice Services. We have had to adapt quickly and ensure that the care of our patients and their families is our top priority. At times it has been heart breaking with reduced visiting and restrictions but have always aimed to do our best in these difficult circumstances and ensure families are supported throughout.
Our wonderful nurses are the beating heart of Hospice, and we recognise the changes they have had to adapt to but in the most professional and caring of ways. Therefore we are launching our Sponsor a Hospice Nurse Campaign where we are asking you contribute a regular gift to Hospice through a monthly donation in order to support our future.
Jenny Brown, staff nurse at Southern Area Hospice Services explains about her role in Hospice and the challenges and highlights of her time working at Hospice.
“I love meeting amazing patients and their families. Talking and listening are a big part of my job now, and if anyone knows me – I like to chat! I will always try to do what I can to make a difference for a patient. Being a palliative nurse is challenging but very rewarding, I try hard to bring a little bit of light to every patient I care for during a very tough time, made even more difficult with the Covid-19 restrictions now in place. This has been a challenge for me, but it has also been a great opportunity. It is a lovely feeling to be part of such an amazing team here at Southern Area Hospice Services, even during these difficult times.”
With fundraising still not full back to full capacity we need to protect our future and you can help us do that. By sponsoring a nurse for a gift as little as £5 per month you will be helping our hospice to care for and support patients and families today, tomorrow and into the future. Regular committed support is so important to Southern Area Hospice Services as it allows us to plan for the future needs of our patients in the knowledge that we can depend on a regular source of income from our loyal donors, like yourself.
When you sign up to Sponsor a Nurse, you’ll receive:
- A welcome letter from one of our Hospice nurses
- An exclusive Sponsor a Nurse pin badge; and a
- Quarterly newsletter with Hospice developments and service updates
