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.
Create a Lasting Memory
We invite you to sponsor a light on our tree in memory of a loved one or to honour a special person or occasion. Sponsoring a light on the St Vincent's Hospice tree will help us continue to provide vital care for the local community.
Your support will help families like the Walkers. Thomas Walker was an In-Patient at St Vincent's Hospice for just 42 hours, however, his son Scott says:
"The care my father received was exceptional. The wee things made so much difference; the nurses talked to him all the time, they even trimmed his nails and gave him a shave. Those kinds of personal touches made the situation so much easier."
To sponsor a light on our tree you can dedicate online here.
You are warmly invited to:
