Ashgate Hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care free of charge to people aged 18 and over. They help thousands of people across North Derbyshire each year.
The essential care they deliver helps people with life-limiting illnesses, including cancer, neurological diseases, and end-stage heart, kidney and lung diseases. They also support people’s loved ones to ensure they get the necessary bereavement support.
To continue providing the outstanding level of care recognised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), they must raise as much money as possible so that more people in North Derbyshire can have the care they want for themselves and their families.
In the average year, they hope to generate around £3.5m in sales from their shops and around £4.5m in income from other fundraising activities. However, with significantly high fixed costs combined with the current economic pressures, they face ongoing uncertainty around the scale and timing of their income. As a result, their dependency on fundraising and retail income increases.
North Derbyshire has a wonderful community of supporters who strive to raise money through charity events, fundraisers and donations.
As a family-run, independent and local company, FlameCare is proud to support Ashgate Hospice, and we value the continued support we receive from you, our lovely customers.
