Holme Pierrepont Charity Swim Event – 21st August 2021

Holme Pierrepont Charity Swim Event
Saturday 21st August 2021

Nottinghamshire Hospice’s mission is to add life to every day for people who have been told their illness cannot be cured, helping them to live as actively and well as possible with care that puts them at the front of everything the hospice says and does.

Nottinghamshire Hospice believes everyone in Nottinghamshire should have a good death. All care is provided free, as they believe nobody should have to worry about paying for care at such a challenging time. For patients and their loved ones, the palliative, end of life care and support that the hospice provides is a beacon of hope in fulfilling their rights.

Last year, Nottinghamshire Hospice supported over 3,000 people through end-of-life care at home. They have just opened up their new GRACE Unit, providing a space for complementary therapy and group activities whilst continuing round the clock care in people’s homes.

Every year, Nottinghamshire Hospice needs to raise £3million to meet the needs of patients with terminal and life-limiting illness and their loved ones. This is achieved through the kindness and generosity of people in communities across Nottinghamshire who recognise the difference their work makes.

Please help us support people in our community this year by booking on to our Open Water Swimming Morning in support of Nottinghamshire Hospice.
