Please help raise funds for the St Davids Hospice, you can donate by clicking the just giving link below.
St David’s Hospice is a local charity, caring for local people by delivering specialist care to adult patients with advanced progressive illness, and their families.
This touches the lives of over 1,600 people within our local communities from across the counties of Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.
The Hospice offers 24 hour care, 365 days a year providing a clinical service alongside emotional, physical and spiritual support. The Hospice Day Care Unit provides patient care, bereavement and counselling services, whilst the Inpatient Unit offers symptom control, respite and end of life care.
It costs over £2million each year to deliver St David’s Hospice care services – that’s over £5,000 a day. Around 84% of this figure comes from community fundraising. None of these costs are passed to the patients, their families or carers, because St David’s Hospice care is free to all.
