Huge thank you to everyone who joined us for our first ever Giving Day.
The total raised stands at over £312,000, which will help our teams to continue to provide expert and specialist care and support care to babies, children, young people and adults with life-limiting conditions, and for their families too. We are overjoyed, humbled and beyond grateful. The support from our community has blown us away.
Huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who played a part. You are all our Champions and we couldn’t have done this without you.
Donations can still be made to the Giving Day campaign in support of St Oswald’s Hospice until Friday 7th April at www.charityextra.com/stoswaldshospice although the matched funding has now ran out so gifts will no longer be doubled but will be gratefully received and put to good use.
