The Severn Hospice support families through the good days and bad days because they believe that when cure is no longer possible, care is. Since 1989, they have given free care and support to more than 27,000 patients and their loved ones during their time of greatest need. They now help more than 2,800 local people every year.
The hospice is part of health services offered to people living in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales but they are not part of the NHS. The hospice is a completely independent charity, having to raise around two-thirds of its running costs.
All of the care they provide to thousands of people every year is only possible thanks to the generous support they receive from the communities they serve. Their services are funded through a combination of kind donations from local people, fundraising activities, a lottery and retail departments, gifts in people’s wills and grants from the NHS.
