Can you help us pay for the extra day this Leap Year?

This year is a Leap Year, so we all have an extra day on Saturday 29th February. However, this means we have an additional day to fund to provide care and support for our patients and families. 

We’re launching a special appeal to help cover the costs of providing our services this Leap Day. 

To help fund our vital services this Leap Day, we need your help

There are so many ways you can help in the run up to Leap Day, from making a donation, taking part in one of our events or organising your own, visiting our shops, playing our Raffle or Lottery or asking your organisation, school or group to support us...

Celebrate and remember a loved one with a Snowdrop this February. Your donation for dedicating a Snowdrop will go towards providing care and support this Leap Day...
