CHARITY OF THE YEAR

The BEST WESTERN York House Hotel are proud to be supporting and raising much needed funds for St Wilfrid's Hospice. Over the next year we will be arranging various raffles and taking part in fundraising events with our staff for the charity and hope our visitors and guests will support us in our efforts.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice is a local charity providing skilled and compassionate care and treatment for all patients with complex needs as they near the end of life.

Over the last 29 years they have cared for over 15,500 patients and hope to continue to cater for the growing needs of our community. At present an estimated 3000 local people a year need their support - current facilities enable the Hospice to support just 1,000 of them.

St Wilfrid's latest initiative – Campaign Reach – is concerned with responding to the growing demands of our community and transforming end of life care. They are currently in the process of constructing their new Hospice in Broadwater Way: a project which will enable them to care for twice as many patients. However, in order to furnish and equip the building, provide the staff needed and continue to deliver impeccable care the Hospice need to raise £5.3 million. Currently, they receive just 15% towards their running costs from the NHS and, as such, can only function with the support and fundraising efforts of the local community.

 

"We are extremely grateful to the York House Hotel for their continued support and are delighted to be nominated as their Charity of the Year"
