Our SinglePoint team of call handlers and nurses provide advice and support to patients, families and health and social care professionals over the phone 24 hours, 7 days a week, and we don’t turn our phones to voicemail over the Christmas period.
In 2019 we asked local businesses to help us be there for our patients and families over the Christmas period by sponsoring a day in our Festive Fortnight.
Can your business help us in 2020?
In 2018, over the festive fortnight we took 1,342 calls from people who needed us at a difficult time, and this year we expect to help even more. Our SinglePoint team are vital in helping to ensure our patients can remain at home where they want to be at Christmas, spending time with their loved ones and tucking into a Christmas lunch – just like you.
“Having SinglePoint on the end of the phone was a relief for us to know we could ask for advice and support when we needed to, especially over the Christmas period.”
“I sometimes rang St Helena’s SinglePoint in the middle of the night which was like having a glimmer of light in the darkness.”
Your business could help St Helena Hospice support hundreds of local people in your community this holiday season to remain as comfortable as possible and enjoy Christmas like other families. Will you sponsor SinglePoint for a day for £500?
To find out more, please call Sarah on 01206 931 468 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
• On the day that you pick to sponsor during the Festive Fortnight, we will share an image or video of you with your logo on our social media pages, sharing with our thousands of supporters that you are SinglePoint’s sponsor for the day
• Your logo and link to your website on St Helena Hospice’s website ‘Festive Fortnight’ page
• Supporting a local charity is proven to motivate employees
• The opportunity for you to promote your involvement with a local charity
• We will supply you with our ‘Proud supporter’ logo, for you to use on your website
“The comfort of knowing they were at the end of a telephone immediately night and day was a vital service that we relied on as a family. No queuing, no explaining ourselves every time, just professional high class help when we needed it the most.”
