On Friday 8th March we are supporting our charity of the year, St Michael’s Hospice, by participating in a Pound for Patients Day 2019!
The aim of a Pound for Patients Day is to collect as many pound coins as possible within 24 hours, with all proceeds going towards the brilliant St Michael’s Hospice!
The Hospice focuses on providing care and support for local patients facing life-limiting illnesses and their families, and have created a Pound for Patients Day to show what we can do as a community when we pull together for a common cause!
The aim is to donate £1, however any donation is welcome as it will all make a huge difference to the Hospice. To put it into perspective, just £5 can provide drugs and oxygen for one patient for one hour, £250 can fund a patient visit by one of the hospice home team, and £480 pays for a patient in their in-patient unit for one day, so it goes to show how far a pound donation can really go!

The team at Site Equip chose St Michael’s Hospice as our Charity of the Year for 2019 because they provide an invaluable service to their patients and families. We wholly support the time and effort that the Hospice put in to ensure the best quality of life is given and that specialist care is provided to patients where a cure may not be possible.
As our Charity of the Year, we will be participating in various fundraising events throughout the year, hosted by both St Michael’s Hospice and by Site Equip, with all proceeds going to the charity.
So please join us on Friday 8th March to show your support by donating a pound and making a difference! To make a donation, simply visit our JustGiving page. Let’s see how much we can raise when we come together as a community!
