Fund Few Minutes Appeal WEB 01

The rising cost of living is affecting everyone, and the cost of our care is rapidly increasing. If everyone could Fund a Few Minutes, together you could fund hours, days or even weeks of care.


Every day, we need to raise £9,500 – or £6.60 a minute – in charitable donations to fund our services. That’s 27% – or £2,000 – more than two years ago.

That’s why we’re launching our Fund a Few Minutes Appeal. Because at Garden House Hospice Care, a few minutes really can make a difference.

We know times are tight for everyone and are incredibly grateful for every minute of care you can help us provide.

Why is the cost of care rising?

  • More people need us: We had a 28% rise on patient referrals last year
  • Employing more people: To meet this demand, specialists such as physiotherapists and a children’s art therapist are joining the Hospice
  • Expanded day services: These allow us to provide more classes and one-on-one appointments to patients earlier in their diagnosis
  • Staff salaries: Our Clinical teams received a much-deserved pay rise last year, in line with NHS salary increases
  • Utilities prices: We have seen a 50% surge in our gas and electricity prices alone

How will my few minutes make a difference?

  • A counsellor can make a phone call to a parent, worried about how to tell their children dad's illness isn't going to get better
  • A doctor/nurse can welcome, reassure and support a new patient on admission to our Inpatient Unit
  • A carer can take a breather while our Health Care Assistants provide care for their loved one at home
  • A Specialist Nurse can listen to and make plans with a care home resident their needs and wishes
  • A virtual seated exercise class can begin, allowing people across the country to join from home

Our promise to you is that your gift of a few minutes will enable us to take actions, make decisions and support people in that moment, with an impact that will last far longer on the individual and their loved ones too.
