Crisis Appeal

As we prepare ourselves for a massive spike in Covid-19 pandemic referrals, our 38 charity shops are closed and we have had numerous events postponed. This is why we are facing the biggest challenge in our forty year history and we are in desperate need of your support.

We are appealing for donations from supporters old and new so that our nurses can continue to provide the best care and support to those in need throughout Gwent and South Powys.

Charity Chief Executive Emma Saysell says: “Our plea to supporters, the community and businesses, is urgent and immediate. I fully expect referrals for our services to increase by 50-60%  over coming days. We just must be, we have to be, ready to respond which is why we are so desperate for financial support. So very many concerned people and businesses have contacted us directly asking how they can help during the pandemic. We have set up the Just Giving Campaign as the best and most immediate way supporters can help right now.”

To cope with the extra pressures we’re facing and the financial uncertainty of fundraising going forward, we’re asking, if you can, please make a donation so that we can be there in the future for the patients and families that need us.

Thank you for your support at this difficult time from everyone at St David’s Hospice Care.
