Regular giving to support Oakhaven
Grab a coffee, let’s have a chat…
End-of-life is rarely the topic of conversation when you sit down with a coffee. But the Covid pandemic has changed the way all of us live and has shown us how precious life is. Now is the time to talk about death and what that means for us and our loved ones.
We want our final days to be peaceful, to die supported and pain-free but Oakhaven too has been affected by the pandemic. It has highlighted the fragility of our income streams and how we must secure them for the future.
That cup of coffee will make a difference
We know that the price of a coffee doesn’t seem a lot but if you, our community, are willing to donate just £3 each month, you can touch the lives of those at the end of life.
By joining together, having a virtual coffee every month and donating the cost, you will come together to secure the future of Oakhaven Hospice, directly providing care to people as they die, helping others come to terms with a diagnosis, and supporting families through bereavement.
For the price of a cup of coffee...together we are stronger
Approximately 150,000 adults live in the New Forest, Waterside and Totton which is the area covered by Oakhaven Hospice’s extensive services. If each of these people were to donate just £3 (the typical price of a cup of coffee out) every month, the combined annual total would come to over £5 million, which would cover all of Oakhaven's annual costs.
In these challenging times, we ask you all to consider helping your hospice by committing to give a regular amount each month. Together we could ensure that Oakhaven is there to support everyone, throughout our community, now and for the future.
“Oakhaven allows us the time to really care for the patient and their families, to really give individual care and build relationships; it’s a privilege to be there for people as they die.”
How much you decide to give is entirely up to you. As little as £3 a month will be welcomed and the more you can give, the more it will help. We hope that as more people give a regular amount, however small, gradually this will take the pressure off our other income streams.
Here’s how you can help: it’s the small things that make a difference
- £6 a month helps transport patients to and from our Day Hospice where they can enjoy a social day, shared laughter, a hearty lunch and relax for a while.
- £12 a month helps those coping with a diagnosis or following the death of loved one the opportunity to work through their emotions with one of our counsellors.
- £36 a month helps to bring the hospice to your home, where our community teams can support you, allowing you to remain at home and independent for as long as possible.
