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 Covid-19 has changed the way all of us live and shown us how precious life is, so 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 how fragile our income is and how we must secure it 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.
Together we are stronger.
Approximately 150,000 adults live in the New Forest, Waterside and Totton, the area covered by Oakhaven Hospice’s extensive services.
In these challenging times we ask you all to consider being there for your hospice by committing to give a regular amount each and every month.
If each person were to give just £3.00 per month, the equivalent of a cup of takeaway coffee, you will ensure that we are 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”
And if you can give more on a regular basis, here’s how you can help:
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.
