Charity Challenge

St John’s Hospice is excited to invite the business community and groups to become part of our supporter family through our new Charity Challenge.

Here at St John’s, we are your local hospice providing palliative care and support for patients and their families throughout the South Lakes, North Lancashire and parts of North Yorkshire. We are proud to say that our patients will never be charged for the services we provide; however, this does not mean that the services are without cost. We must raise around £10,000 a day to make sure that we can continue to care for patients and families when they need us the most.

On the 1st of May St John’s will be launching our 50-50-500 Charity Challenge where we are asking 50 local businesses or groups, over 50 days to raise a minimum of £500 each to support their hospice.
