Philosophy of Care
The aim of Wirral Hospice St John's is to warmly welcome people with progressive illness, which has failed to respond to curative treatment, into the quiet calm of a highly professional caring atmosphere, which comforts always both them and those who are important to them.
Light up a Life 2014. Sunday 7th December 5.30pm.
Wirral Hospice invites you to celebrate the lives of those people special to you by dedicating one of our beautiful lights to someone special to you.
Light up a Life offers an uplifting and meaningful way to remember family and friends who are no longer with us. Your loved ones light will be lit each night from the switch on ceremony until Twelfth Night (Monday 5th January).
Following the completion of our new building this year, the service will be back where it belongs, in the gardens of the Hospice. The switch on will take place on Sunday 7th December at 5.30pm.
To light a light for someone you love call 0151 343 0778 or go to www.wirralhospice.org/light
Fancy Taking Part in #Rocktober for Wirral Hospice?
On Fri 31 Oct, we are asking people to dress up/down in rock-themed fancy dress. This could be glam rock, punk rock, soft rock, heavy metal, rock chick, Bedrock (The Finstones!) or rock ‘n’ roll… The choice is yours! It ties in nicely with that Friday being Halloween too, so we’re hoping for some really good outfits.
All we asking is that if you do take part that you pass on a small donation to Wirral Hospice, we’re suggesting £2 per person but you can give whatever you’d like to. You can do this by donating online via www.justgiving.com/rocktober or by texting ‘WHSJ66’ £2 to 70070.
If you’d like any posters, balloons, collection boxes or buckets for your place of work, please call 0151 343 0778 or email Michelle Talgam, Fundraising Development Manager at email@example.com

Sainsbury's Upton chooses our Hospice for a second year
We are very excited to say that Sainsbury’s Upton has announced that Wirral Hospice St John's will receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support for a second year.
The announcement comes after local residents had the opportunity to nominate their favourite local charity to receive a year’s worth of support from the team at Sainsbury’s Upton. Last year, the store supported the Hospice to raise a record £12,086 to help us continue to provide its vital services.
The Local Charity scheme continues to grow, with over £6 million raised for local charities nationwide since it launched in 2009.
Sainsbury’s Ian Massey, deputy Store Manager said: “We’ve had a great response from our customers this year, both through in-store and online votes. We’re delighted to have chosen a charity which touched many of our colleagues’ hearts. We will now be working closely with the charity to ensure they really benefit from being our Local Charity for the next 12 months”.
Hayley Gough from Wirral Hospice St John's said: "The support of Sainsbury’s Upton has been an enormous boost to our Fundraising this year. We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen again for a second year. We are so very grateful to the Customers and Staff for their fantastic support and we look forward to another year of working together as partners."
