Longfield Hospice, continually strives to reach everyone in Gloucestershire who needs their care, often during the precious last months, weeks and days of their lives. 

Coronavirus has placed extra demands on the Longfield’s Hospice at Home team, who care for patients with Lung Disease, Heart Failure, Cancer, Parkinson’s and other life-limiting conditions, giving them the opportunity to stay in their own homes. Not only are Patients able to die in familiar surroundings, with dignity and compassion, surrounded by their loved ones but, at this critical time, Hospice at Home takes pressure off the already overloaded NHS.

The Covid-19 crisis has led to a big drop in income to the charity with the closure of their retail shops and the cancellation of community fundraising and hospice events and Rotary@Kingsholm were pleased to have been able to make a donation to Longfield to support the continuation of their vital work.

A message from Rachel Jones, head of fund raising and marketing

Thank you so much for getting in touch and for delivering the wonderful news that Longfield will receive £500 from Rotary@Kingsholm

We are absolutely determined in these incredibly difficult and uncertain times that we need to ensure we can still provide the care needed to people across Gloucestershire. With the shop income falling to zero and fundraising income being affected by events being cancelled, the appeal has been a lifeline for the hospice. I only started at Longfield as Head of Fundraising last week and already I’m genuinely touched by the support of the community, it really is very heart-warming to see everyone rally to ensure the care can continue.

Thank you again for your support and commitment to Longfield, it is greatly appreciated.
