We are 40!

We are excited to be celebrating our 40th anniversary in 2024, with activities and celebrations planned throughout the year, as we look back on four decades of St Michael’s Hospice.

Fabulous fundraisers

St Michael’s Hospice traces its origins to visionary fundraisers whose dedication ignited its inception. Year after year, it’s the relentless commitment of our fundraisers that sustains us. As we mark our 40th milestone, we reflect with profound gratitude on the extraordinary efforts and astounding accomplishments of these individuals. They have been the driving force behind the hospice’s growth and triumphs, ensuring its enduring presence and impact in our community.

A tribute to our volunteers

Over the past 40 years, St Michael’s care has only been possible thanks to the incredible hard work, support and commitment of hundreds of volunteers, who have generously given their time and expertise in wide-ranging roles across the hospice – such as volunteering in our shops and cafes, supporting patients in the Inpatient Unit and in the community, helping out at fundraising events and activities, tending to the hospice gardens and volunteering in the hospice’s offices. They are such a big part of our continued success.

Our wonderful staff

With over 200 staff, there are simply too many incredible individuals to mention! But it goes without saying, that our Hospice is only as good at the people within it, and we are incredibly lucky to have a team of caring, compassionate people who truly believe that everyone should have access to the best possible care towards the end of their life. We can’t thank them all enough.

In celebration of 40 years of care 

’84 Limited Edition Gin

To celebrate our 40th anniversary year, we have collaborated with Herefordshire-based company Penrhos Spirits to offer  ’84, perfect for gin lovers!

Produced in limited quantities, each bottle becomes a keepsake, a way to hold a piece of our history and contribute to our ongoing care.

St Michael’s Hospice in numbers

It costs a staggering amount to run St Michael’s Hospice every year, ensuring that experts, pain relief, access to support, counselling, advice and so much more is available at the biggest time of someone’s life. We simply couldn’t be here for as many people as we are without you, our amazing community.

Your donations make our care possible.
