Make a difference

Every gift, large or small, makes a difference to local people in need of hospice care and bereavement support.

Because of you…

St Helena Hospice would not be here without the generosity and support of local people like you. You are the reason more people across north east Essex can receive the specialist care, compassion and dignity they deserve, right to the end of life.

Quote Author

“What made it different is the people were in tune with how you might be feeling, so they'll go out of their way to spend time to try and reassure you, to sit and have a bit of a laugh with you.”
