Sponsor a nurse
A new fundraising campaign for Pilgrims Hospices aiming to raise vital funds to care for increasing number of patients in the future.
Get involved and make a difference today.
In 2013, Pilgrims will need to fund an extra staff nurse for every early and late shift seven days per week, an additional sister on each site, whose role will include developing nursing practice, and an additional palliative specialist nurse for each site.
It costs £20 an hour to cover all the costs of ensuring a Pilgrims nurse can provide care where it’s needed – on the ward, in the day hospices, in a patient’s own home, in care homes or at a community outreach group.
Individuals and businesses can pay for one hour, one day, one week or even one month by making either a one-off donation or setting up a standing order to make regular contributions.
It already costs £10.5 million a year to provide all of the charity’s services across east Kent and this figure will only rise as more people require our specialist care.
