Become a Hospice Hero
add life to days

Still looking for a New Year’s resolution?

Ever thought about becoming a Hospice Hero?

OK. Let's start with the basics.

What is a Hospice?

A hospice is a place of care that focuses on the alleviation of pain and discomfort of the chronically or terminally ill.

Although a hospice will not aim to lengthen life, it will aim to make the last days as comfortable and enjoyable as is possible.

The first modern hospice care was created by Cicely Saunders in 1967.

Why is hospice care important?

Along with birth and taxes, death is one of the few certainties that we all face. Increasingly, as we live longer and more cures are found for more diseases, more of us are likely to face the slow and potentially painful death from those diseases, like certain cancers, that we can't cure.

There may come a time when nothing more can be done for you and a hospice is the only option.

How hospices are funded

On average adult hospices in the UK receive a third of their income from the Government, with the rest coming from community fundraising, hospice charity shops, hospice lotteries and investments. However, the level of statutory funding varies widely across the country, between the different nations and also within different regions.

What is a Hospice Hero?

A Hospice Hero is someone who takes on a mad challenge to help raise funds for Nottinghamshire Hospice.

This can be anything including jumping out of a plane (with a parachute of course), doing the Tough Mudder Half (this is running a half marathon but doing it through mud. It takes a particular kind of 'hero' to do this. The kind that you probably won't want to sit next to on the bus.) or even a trek along the Great Wall of China (hmmm ... wouldn't mind a bit of that myself.)
