Local spa and hotel, Lifehouse have raised £20,220 since December 2014 through their Charity of the Year partnership with St Helena. This could pay for nurses at The Hospice for an entire week. Our nurses support people who have complex care needs that cannot be managed at home, for example pain or nausea, as well as providing dignified and compassionate care in the last days of life.

The ways you can help us is only limited by what you can come up with, however some examples of how you can get involved include:

  • Charity of the Year – Increasingly companies and charities are seeing the benefits of working with a select local charity partner. We can help develop skills, increase brand awareness and help meet corporate social responsibilities whilst you can help us by fundraising!
  • Birkett Long £50 Challenge – take the challenge and use your team’s entrepreneurial skills to turn £50 into hundreds or maybe thousands for St Helena!
  • Join us for a day of volunteering - assemble a team and help sort donations at our Donation Centre or get hands on by helping with some decorating, gardening or maintenance at The Hospice or one of our day therapies centres in Colchester and Clacton.
  • Sponsor an event – we have a number of high profile events each year which provide a perfect opportunity to promote your brand while helping us.

Marks and Spencer in Clacton raised £2,523 for St Helena through their Charity of the Year partnership with us. This could pay for three of our Breathe Happy Group sessions at our Tendring Centre in Clacton. The group takes place over six sessions for up to 10 people at a time helping individuals to learn techniques and exercises to help them relax and breathe more easily if they are experiencing difficulties due to their illness.
