We have launched our very first Sponsor a Nurse Campaign to raise funds for the vital nursing care we provide for people in Merton and Sutton.

More than 1,000 local people facing life-limiting illnesses are cared for by our nurses each year. They are at the heart of the community, helping people in the comfort of their own homes and on the ward at the Hospice, at no charge.

Michelle Brocklehurst, Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialist at St Raphael’s Hospice, shares: 

It costs us a staggering £6.5m year to provide free specialist services to the people of Merton and Sutton, with only 25% of our funding coming from the NHS. 

People can donate to our Sponsor a Nurse appeal by signing up for regular giving or with a one-off donation. The generosity of the community enables our nurses to be there for as many local people as possible, with a small monthly gift having a positive impact for months or years to come.

Kate Billingham Wilson, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at St Raphael’s Hospice, says:

By sponsoring a St Raphael’s nurse with a monthly gift, you will receive a pin badge to wear with pride, personal updates from a local St Raphael’s nurse and two Raphaelite magazines a year. You can also make a one-off donation. To help make a positive difference, click the button below or call the Supporter Care team on 020 8254 2450.
