Last year we raised over £3,000 for St Peter’s Hospice and this year, for the first time, we have decided to raise money again for St Peter’s Hospice, a Bristol charity caring for adults with life-limiting illnesses both in the Hospice and at home. They also support families and friends and teach other healthcare professionals about how to care for people at the end of their lives. All of St Peter’s care is provided free of charge, but it costs around £20,000 a day to provide that care. In addition, St Peter’s ‘Room to Care’ Appeal is aimed at developing their Inpatient Unit to meet the complex needs of patients in the 21st Century. St Peter’s Hospice is a charity very close to our hearts.
