Support the hospice through your business this Christmas
Christmas is a time for giving, spending lots of time with loved ones and creating happy memories. But at this time of year it’s also important to remember those for whom Christmas isn’t always an easy time and who may need the help of the hospice over the festive period. We have a number of ways you can help ….
Christmas Day Dip
Celebrate Christmas Day by taking a dip in the North Sea in your Christmas outfit or fancy dress. Click here for more information.
One less Christmas card this year?
If we encourage all of our fundraisers to donate a small amount maybe even just the cost of a Christmas card, our patients could be better off. So instead of sending a card why not donate the money you would have spent – you could collect this money in one of our pots or even set up a JustGiving page entitled - Donations in lieu of Christmas Cards for St Elizabeth Hospice?
There are also a few verses here you could adapt instead of sending a Christmas card.
Music to our ears
We are excited to announce the release of the original new song “Always” by Pop Chorus, the Suffolk-based adult community choir under the direction of founder, professional singer Yula Andrews. From 17th November “Always” will be available to download or stream from iTunes, Amazon and Spotify with profits going to St Elizabeth Hospice.
Songwriter David Simon took words written in collaboration with patients about what the hospice meant to them and turned it into an uplifting pop song. It was recorded at Diss Corn Hall under the direction of Suffolk-based musician-producers Ian Curnow and Phil Harding, who have worked with Kylie Minogue, Take That, Rick Astley and Talk Talk among many, many others.
Woolly Pully Week

When you’re dying, the simplest moments can become the most precious of all and Christmas is no exception to this. We want to make memories for our patients and their families over the festive period and a donation for instance of just a donation from you of £23.50 would exactly pay for one hour of nursing care for someone on our In-Patient Unit – that could be the hour they welcome their family into their room and exchange presents. Or, a gift of £78.56 would cover the cost of a Community Nursing visit to a patient at home, helping them to feel well enough to achieve an important personal goal in their last days.
