# #

Hatmill has donated £24,000 to six deserving charities, chosen by the team.

In the second of our blogs shining a spotlight on the charities we support, Rob Cottrell, a consultant at Hatmill shares more about the charity he put forward.

St Peter’s Hospice is a charity that provides care and support to adults who are living with a progressive life-limiting illness in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset area. They have been established for over 40 years with the majority of their support provided in people’s homes.

People receiving their care have a wide range of conditions, including cancer, heart failure, lung disease and neurological illness. Support is focused around the physical, psychological, social and spiritual issues that can arise as a result of serious illness, in order to improve the quality of a person’s life.

Serving as a beacon of hope and solace, St Peter’s Hospice annually touches the lives of thousands facing life-limiting illnesses. From pain management to bereavement support, their dedicated 24/7 team provides unwavering assistance both within their state-of-the-art Inpatient Unit and remotely, adapting even to online platforms amidst challenges like the pandemic. An epitome of clinical and educational excellence, the Hospice extends its expertise to other healthcare entities, ensuring comprehensive end-of-life care. Remarkably, the community funds 78% of their operations, emphasising the Hospice’s reliance on generous contributions, shopping, and volunteers. As they rightly proclaim, #weareyourhospice.

St Peter’s Hospice is a charity that is personally close to my heart due to the compassionate support they gave to my grandad and our family allowing him to pass away peacefully at home, which was his wish.
