Share the Magic of Christmas

Please share the Magic of Christmas and spread moments of magic to our patients and loved ones this festive season.

The Magic of Christmas appeal

Christmas is a time steeped in traditions and at St Helena Hospice, we do everything we can to ensure our patients can enjoy their favourite traditions with the people they love at this special time of year.

We don’t close the hospice for Christmas and our SinglePoint, hospice in the home, virtual ward and bereavement services continue to run over the festive season, providing vital care and support so families and friends can relax and enjoy the magic of Christmas together.

By donating today, you will help patients spend Christmas with those they love, enjoying magical moments together and the traditions they hold dear.

Donate to our appeal

Christmas is also a time for remembrance. If you're missing someone this Christmas, we've shared a few ways you can join us in remembering them at this poignant time of year.

Hospice cook Marie loves adding some sparkle to Christmas for patients at the hospice who enjoy a delicious homemade Christmas lunch just like the one they’d tuck into at home.

Marie, hospice cook

"I treat each patient as if they are family. I really enjoy preparing the food and try my absolute best to make the day special for everyone"

Marie, hospice cook

On Christmas Eve she can usually be found in the hospice kitchen chopping vegetables (including 16kg of sprouts!), preparing the turkey and wrapping the pigs in their blankets while singing along to her favourite Christmas songs.  

When you’re really poorly, homemade food is a huge comfort and at Christmas, it’s even more important. For some, this could be their last Christmas. With your help we can make it magical. 

“There’s been a lot of fun, there’s been a lot of activities, we’ve had a fantastic Christmas dinner and they also wrapped up presents to give us all on Christmas Day, which I though was amazing, they always go that extra mile and do something that you don’t expect.” – Hospice patient

Please help more people to create lasting memories of a special Christmas this year by donating to our Magic of Christmas appeal.
