Help Royal Trinity Hospice patients Donate The scale of the coronavirus crisis is unprecedented. The lockdown restrictions imposed back in March are over for now but, as with more government measures to suppress the virus and avoid winter resurgence announced, the challenge of raising funds remains. While Trinity is preparing to again support the NHS in the battle against the virus and to care for increased number of patients, some COVID-19 positive, our financial position is uncertain. Donate to our urgent appeal A reduced number of our shops have reopened after three months of closure, however income levels have not returned to normal and are unlikely to for many months. Almost all fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future, further impacting our income. Because of this, there has been a significant shortfall of at least £3m in our funding which we have reduced with crucial and at times difficult cost cutting measures and the support we have received so far to our emergency appeal. We’ve secured the present, however the future is looking precarious. In our 129-year history, we have never faced such a severe challenge. We still need your support At any one time we are typically caring for over 740 patients with a life-limiting illness, many of them in the last few months of their lives. Last year, it cost £16 million to provide our outstanding free care to over 2,500 patients – and only a quarter of this is funded by the NHS. We need your support to help us be there for all the patients and their families who need us in these difficult times. Please donate today to secure Trinity’s services, whatever you can – and then spread the word and urge everyone you know to do the same. We need you now. Donate to our urgent appeal Create your Just Giving page Help us be there for patients In the coming months, our doctors and nurses will be needed more than ever as experts predict a peak of virus transmission during winter. The population of 750,000 Londoners for whom we are the only provider of specialist end of life and palliative care will need our support and expertise. Without Trinity, there will be nowhere else for them to turn. Which is why we’re turning to you now. Please help us today Through careful management we have a few contingencies, but the scale of this crisis means these will not keep us open indefinitely. Please help us today. Together we will get through this crisis and we will be here for patients and their families for years to come. Thank you.
