Give the Gift of Time this Christmas

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity is launching a Christmas Appeal called 'Give the Gift of Time this Christmas' to ensure that local people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, get the help and support they need this Christmas and beyond.

A key message from the appeal is to explain that just £25 will pay for an hour of a nurse's time to provide care and reassurance to a patient and their loved ones at Christmas time.

The Charity is asking people living in Buckinghamshire and its borders to consider making a one-off donation or becoming a regular monthly giver by visiting https://fnhospice.org.uk/christmasappeal

A relative of a patient recently said, "When we, as a family, heard the word 'Hospice', it scared us. We thought that's it then, this is the end, what a sad, depressing place it will be.

"But we couldn't have been more wrong. From the moment we stepped through those doors, a beautiful and calm sense of relief enveloped us. The kind, friendly, reassuring, happy, smiling nurses and doctors just put us at ease straight away."

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity would like to thank all its supporters for any help they can give during this season of goodwill.
