We will be holding a public consultation with Thakeham in September. We would urge you to come along and support our proposals, so we can make end of life care for our community, a reality for many years to come.
This is a very exciting opportunity for St Catherine’s and we are extremely grateful for the support of Bill Bridges, Thakeham and another kind supporter, John Shemeld, whose generous donations have enabled us to begin the journey of expanding our services.
John Shemeld left a large part of his estate to us to ensure hospice care was readily available for the local community. This kind gift, of £7.8 million, has been set aside for the project, however, the overall cost of building and furnishing a new hospice will be around £14 million. Therefore, we still need to raise around £7 million to realise our dream of supporting the community for many years to come. If you want to support us in this mission please visit our website to make a donation at www.stch.org.uk.
