As you are aware the impact of Covid-19 is a cause for concern for individuals, families, businesses and the charity sector is no exception. Your support is essential to us; cancelling and postpone events is having a negative impact on our fundraising so if you can help us continue with our work supporting people with life-shortening illnesses in your community with your generosity and kindness we would be very grateful.
Below are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding our events and fundraising for St John’s Hospice at this challenging time.
