St Vincent’s Hospice is a charitable organisation at the heart of the community, offering specialised care and services to all those affected by life-limiting illness. Every day we are providing vital care for real families in the communities where we live. However, without our supporters, our services would simply cease to exist.
The care we provide often means the difference between coping and not coping at, what can be, an extremely distressing time. You are helping to provide that care, and we need your continued support.
It costs £5,000 per day to run our hospice and community services, over 50% of which comes from your voluntary donations.
Since 1988 we have cared for all those in Renfrewshire and surrounding areas with life limiting illnesses. Our team works together to support the physical, psychological and emotional needs of our patients and their loved ones; care includes day services, specialist home visits and an 8 bed in-patient unit.
St Vincent’s Hospice is proud to be involved with the RSNO and Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief and their forthcoming event To Absent Friends.
Join musicians from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and guests for a special evening of music, storytelling and remembrance. Opening the To Absent Friends festival, sit back and relax as the RSNO’s string quartet performs beautiful music by Beethoven, Ravel, Barber and Mozart, interspersed with thoughtful words and poetry.
To Absent Friends, a People’s Festival of Storytelling and Remembrance, gives people across Scotland an opportunity to remember, to tell stories, to celebrate and to reminisce about people we love who have died. It is an opportunity for us all, in our own unique way, to raise a toast ‘to absent friends’.
