Leap Day call from St. Joseph's Hospice

St. Joseph's Hospice (Jospice) in Thornton is calling on the community across Sefton, Liverpool and West Lancashire to support them this leap year day (Monday 29th February).

The Hospice, which provides specialist end of life care for patients and support for their families, needs to raise £6,500 every day to keep its services running.

Mike Parr, Chief Executive of St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “On Monday, it will be business as usual for our nursing and healthcare teams, who care for over 200 patients every year at the Hospice.

“Every four years, the Hospice has to raise an additional £6,500 to pay for the extra leap year day and so we are asking our local community to help us by sending a quick text and donating to this great cause.”

Please text LEAP00 £10, £20 or £5 to 70070. Every donation, no matter how small, will be used for patient care here at our Hospice.
