Shakespeare Hospice launches £500,000 fund-raising campaign to help safeguard its future

Redditch Editorial 29th Oct, 2018   0

SHAKESPEARE Hospice is asking people to help safeguard its future.

The hospice, which last year helped more than 1,000 adults and young people, has launched a £500,000 fund-raising campaign as “the financial climate has become increasingly difficult”, said chief executive Angie Arnold.

“We are working in challenging times and raising funds in an increasingly competitive market.

“Demand for our services is growing and we want to help more people. As our population’s needs change, the complexities of caring for those with a life-limiting illness is also changing and we must be able to respond to this.”




The hospice services a population of more than 300,000 people.

To continue to provide its current level of service, the hospice needs to secure funding of £2.4m.


The NHS provides just over one tenth of this, leaving the rest to be raised locally.

Alternatively, people can *text to donate ‘tshdonate3’ from their mobile to donate £3, or ‘tshdonate5’ to donate £5 or ‘tshdonate10’ to donate £10 to 70500.
