The Big Give 2023

We are delighted to announce that we have raised an amazing £13,302.50 including Gift Aid via

The Big Give 2023!

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the donors who pledged their support and to everyone who helped to spread the word of our campaign.

 

Your support will enable Beaumond House to care for patients, and support carers and family members following a terminal diagnosis, when every moment matters.

 

What your donations will support - ‘The Loneliness of Diagnosis’

The project ‘The Loneliness of Diagnosis’ highlights the feelings that many of our patients and their carers and family members face. A terminal diagnosis for many causes friends to disappear, doors close, seclusion and solitude set in.

 

At Beaumond House, we know that almost a quarter of our current caseload of patients live alone. However, feelings of loneliness and isolation are not restricted to the patient. These feelings can extend to family members and carers of individuals with a life-limiting illness. Loneliness impacts upon both mental and physical health considerably compromising the immune system.

With your help, we want to raise £12,500 in just one week, to help combat loneliness in patients and their carers and family members by providing a range of services encouraging interaction, socialisation, and connection.

The campaign aims to enable us to provide our free Day Therapy service, provide transport, activities, and a nutritious home-cooked meal five days a week through the winter months. The provision extends to carers and family members through support groups and Wellbeing services.
