Corporate Hospice Hearts
Show your love by buying a Hospice Heart.
We know how important Beaumond House is to many local companies so we are extending our Keep Our Hospice in Your Heart campaign to businesses.
By buying and displaying one of our unique hearts you will demonstrate how much Beaumond House means to you.
The hearts connect you directly to the love and support which Beaumond House gives to the community day and night.
The blue hearts will be made by local crafts people using different materials, depending on their expertise.
They will be 20cm in height and a similar size in width - something that can be easily put on your reception to show your love for Beaumond House and support for our campaign.
A £250 donation for a heart will pay for a day therapy patient to come to the hospice once a week for three weeks; £500 pays for two days care for a patient in Beaumond House £1,000 is enough for a patient to remain in their home helped by Hospice at Home.
Please show your love …. Have a Heart.

What Beaumond House means to me...
Beaumond House Hospice Care has a special place in the hearts of so many people.
We asked six people why...
Joan Denny - Day Patient
Day therapy patient Joan Denny says Beaumond House is very special to her because she feels safe there.
“The moment I walk in there I feel so welcome and everyone is so friendly. It is such a lovely place and I feel so safe and comfortable. You can relax and be yourself.”
Joan has neuroendocrine – a rare cancer which is in her liver, kidney, spine and other bones.
She started coming to day therapy at the hospice after seeing a poster advertising an open day there. She decided to go along, she met one of the nurses and never looked back.
Before lockdown Joan came to day therapy sessions at the hospice twice a week. She said she loved the company and made lots of friends.
At the moment day therapy sessions are suspended because of the pandemic but the team keep in touch with phone calls and door-step visits when restrictions allow.
“Just talking to somebody who understands is so important,” she said.
“Beaumond House will always be a very special place for me.”
Mr Rob Crowe, Chairman of NSDC
Chairman of Newark and Sherwood District Council Mr Rob Crowe says Beaumond House has played an important part in Newark’s life for many years and provided support and care for many residents and their families.
“The residents and families benefit from the compassion of the hospice team not only in Beaumond House but also in their own homes.
“I know that because of the team’s dedication and support Beaumond House has a special place in many, many people’s hearts.”
Rob said that every time he has visited Beaumond House he has entered a warm environment and heard the sound of chattering and laughter creating an impression of happiness.
“Beaumond House is as essential today as it was on the first day it opened,” he said.
Newark MP Robert Jenrick
Newark MP Robert Jenrick said he was happy to support the campaign.
“It is such a special place and over the years I have met so many people and their families who have come to rely on the compassionate care, the wonderful staff and the brilliant volunteers that make Beaumond House the place it is.
“We want to see it remain and that means donating, digging deep to support the hospice; volunteering if we can or providing anything else we can to ensure that Beaumond House continues for many years to come.”
Jane Imrie, BH Volunteer
Jane Imrie, a volunteer at the charity’s shop in Collingham, says she had no idea how positive and supportive Beaumond House was until she needed help when her husband was terminally ill.
She said Beaumond House had supported herself and her family as well as providing excellent care and friendship for her husband.
“I will never forget their love and amazing care. They provided calm, supportive reassurance.
“I can’t imagine how it would have been without Beaumond House when my husband was ill.
“I believe that those who need such help should have access to it.”
Matt Elsey, Captain, Salvation Army
Captain Matt Elsey from Newark Salvation Army is one of the chaplains at Beaumond House.
He says he knows what incredible care, hospitality and love it shows to so many people in the local community.
“It is a place of joy and hope that isn’t just about end of life care for a patient but support and encouragement to the whole family.
He feels it is a place where the staff and volunteers alike give great care in the most sensitive of times.
“I know many people have had contact with Beaumond House and have always testified to the experiences I have mentioned and often say I don’t know what we would do without Beaumond House.”
Irene Brown, Mayor of Newark
It is a jewel in the crown of Newark says the Mayor of Newark Irene Brown, who has donated some of her charity fund to Beaumond House.
“This wonderful place provides end of life care for those who need it as well as many other services.
“It takes a very special kind of person to work in Beaumond House and I pass on my heartfelt thanks to them and the volunteers. Patients and carers alike would be so much worse off without them.
“Families are not forgotten either – care is there for all who need it.
“Beaumond House is certainly in the heart of Newark and in the hearts of the people of Newark.”
