Bag a Festive Bargain at Queenscourt’s Retail Outlets

With Christmas just around the corner and festive shopping in full swing, Queenscourt is asking you to remember our network of charity shops when it comes to buying gifts this year. All of our seven retail outlets have a distinctly festive feel about them and are hoping to entice shoppers through their doors to pick up a bargain and support their local hospice. Shopping with Queenscourt is a much more relaxed affair than battling the crowds at the huge department stores. So, why not pop in and take your time browsing through our stock and pick up a few last-minute items.

For those planning on sending Christmas cards this year, we have a bumper selection of designs, all sold in packs of ten and all standard letter size when it comes to posting. We have local scenes, traditional nativity and Christmas story cards, along with those featuring the obligatory Father Christmas, snowmen and robins. If you’re still stuck on what to buy someone this year, then how about our Queenscourt Calendar which is made up of 12 photographs taken by some of our supporters. The A4 calendar is a visual celebration of what makes the Southport, Formby and West Lancashire area special. It showcases a diverse array of stunning photography, including shots of red squirrels, Southport Pier at sunset, horse-riders at Ainsdale Beach and ducks at Martin Mere. It costs just £5 and is available in all Queenscourt shops.

You can find our stores in the following areas:
28 Chapel Street in Southport’s main shopping area, open 9.30am-5.00pm.
48 Brows Lane, Formby, open 9am-4.30pm.

We also have a small giftshop with a wide range of unique gifts within the reception area of Queenscourt Hospice in Town Lane, Southport which is open 9am-5pm, Monday-Saturday.

Sue Newth, Area Retail Manager, said: “Our friendly network of retail outlets provides an invaluable source of income for Queenscourt and we are indebted to the band of dedicated volunteers who help us run the shops. We want to encourage people to think of us when they are dashing around the shops and for them to pop in, say hello to our teams and, you never know, we may just have that perfect gift you’ve been looking for!”

Countdown to Queenscourt’s Winter Raffle Draw and 10th Annual Santa Sprint

The clock is ticking on two of Queenscourt’s major fundraisers - with less than two weeks left to buy your tickets for our Winter Raffle which will be drawn at our 10th annual Santa Sprint on December 8.
This year’s Winter Raffle has an ex-demonstration Suzuki Celerio car as its top prize thanks to the generosity of Chapelhouse Southport.

To have a look at what you could win go to: http://bit.ly/Winter-Raffle-Suzuki-Celerio

Tickets costing £1 each can be bought online at www.queenscourt.org.uk/raffle; at our seven retail shops and at our Santa Sprint event.

The lucky winner’s ticket will be drawn at the Santa Sprint in Southport, which we are hoping will be one of our best ever as we celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The event has raised over £90,000 over the past nine years and there is still time to sign up and join us on the day for some festive, fundraising fun.

This year there will be a 3K and 5K route for you to walk, jog or run. The routes are also suitable for wheelchairs, mobility scooters, pushchairs and buggies and you can even bring your pet dog along as well.

Everyone taking part will receive a Santa Suit to wear during the run/walk and a medal on completion. You will also get a complimentary hot drink and Bidfoods will be giving away mince pies on the finish line.

The Santa Sprint, which is being sponsored by Silcock Leisure Group, will start at Southport Pier and see runners make their way around the Marine Lake.

Entry costs £20 for adults; £10 for under 16s or £50 for a family of two adults and two children. Your Santa Sprint registration covers the cost of the event and your Santa suit, but we also hope all those taking part will generate more income for Queenscourt by securing their own sponsorship.

Sign up online for the Santa Sprint at www.queenscourt.org.uk/santasprint or call 01704 517420 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Judith Stewart, Queenscourt’s Fundraising and Lottery Manager, said: “We are so grateful to Chapelhouse for their generous donation of the Suzuki Celerio and don’t want anyone to miss out on their chance to win this fantastic prize.

“With only a few days to go before entry closes, I urge you to buy your tickets now before it’s too late and while you’re at it, why not sign up for our Santa Sprint as well?

“The 10th anniversary Santa Sprint will be a great way to raise essential funding for Queenscourt while also joining in the fun and soaking up the festive atmosphere.”

Queenscourt Launches Lights of Love Appeal

Queenscourt’s annual Lights of Love appeal has been launched which will once again see the hospice’s trees illuminated with lights dedicated to loved ones this winter.

The appeal offers a special way to celebrate the lives of your loved ones by dedicating a shining light in their name and making a donation to support our vital work.

As in previous years, your light will shine in the Queenscourt trees throughout December and January and if you send a message with your donation this will feature in our Book of Dedications at this year’s Lights of Love services.

This year, however, we have added two new ‘virtual’ dimensions to the appeal. We have introduced a virtual tree, where supporters can share a photo of their loved one, and there is also the opportunity for supporters to create their own virtual tree for someone they love and use it to fundraise for Queenscourt.

One of the first virtual trees has been created by Tania Cockcroft who is raising money in memory of her mum, Lorna Christer who died in October 2018.

Tania said: “I wanted to support Queenscourt Hospice, especially at this time of year, as mum died last year after spending three weeks in Queenscourt and five weeks at home with their support.

“This is such a lovely way to keep mum close and to light up a tree in her memory. We always spent Christmas all together, so I would love to get her tree sparkling in time for Christmas whilst paying Queenscourt back for the care they gave to mum.”

Our Lights of Love appeal will be celebrated at our Lights Of Love Services which will be held at Christ the King School, Southport, at 4pm on Saturday, November 30; and at Parish Church, Ormskirk at 4pm the following afternoon (December 1).

Both services are free to attend, are held indoors and will include carols and readings. You’ll also be greeted with a mince pie and a hot drink.

Judith Stewart, Fundraising & Lottery Manager, said: “Whilst the festive period is often a time for celebration, it’s also a time for reflection, and the support we offer has never been more important. Last year’s Lights of Love Appeal raised a staggering £23,294, but we are hoping to do even better this year and have set a target of £28,500. We can only achieve this with your support and donations.”

Hospice Care Week

In support of national Hospice Care Week, which this year took the theme “This Is What It Takes,” Queenscourt turned the spotlight on some of our own unsung heroes. The idea behind this year’s theme was to show just what it takes to keep a hospice running 24 hours a day, all year round, providing essential support for local people when they need it the most. The emphasis was on highlighting the important work of paid staff and volunteers at Queenscourt who are often unseen by members of the public. In a week of blogs, we told the stories of seven people who deliver an essential service for Queenscourt, either as a paid member of staff or as a volunteer. All of them play a vital, but often less visible role in helping to keep the hospice running. Here we revisit the stories of these team members and explain how they make a difference to Queenscourt.

2019 11 11 hcw Zack Dowling
The week started with Zack Dowling’s story. At just 12-years-old Zack is already a dedicated volunteer fundraiser for Queenscourt, having raised more than £2,000. His first involvement with Queenscourt came when he was just two years old and he joined his family in the annual Santa Sprint event. Several years later, he was organising his own fundraising initiative for Queenscourt. Zack became interested in Queenscourt after his nana, Mary Hudson, became a volunteer here over three years ago. On hearing we didn’t have a dishwasher, Zack decided to raise enough money to buy one. Once that was installed, he continued to fundraise and has since raised enough to buy new pans, a canteen of cutlery and is now aiming at buying new trays. In recognition of all his efforts, Zack won the Neil Armstrong Award for “going above and beyond” at Ykids’ seventh annual Believe Awards after he was nominated by his school. “We are so proud of him,” say his grandparents Mary and Roy Hudson. “He has worked so hard to help those in need.”

2019 11 11 hcw Jackie Stephen
Next up was hairdresser and barber Jackie Stephen who has been coming into Queenscourt one morning a week for the last year. She offers cut and blow drys and roller sets to both in-patient and day patients. A hairdresser for over 35 years and a barber for 12, Jackie loves every minute she spends at Queenscourt, brightening up the day for patients. “It is really, really rewarding,” said the mother-of-three. “My Dad had cancer so I know how much it means to people to get their hair done when they are not well and for me, it’s about giving something back. “I can go in there feeling a bit down, but I can guarantee when I come out I will have a big smile on my face. It just fills your heart with happiness.” Jackie is hoping to encourage other hairdressers to follow in her footsteps and consider volunteering their services at Queenscourt. “If you can cut hair, blow dry hair and put in a few rollers, that’s all you need,” she said. “It’s a great place to be - all the other volunteers and staff are so nice and make you feel so welcome.”

2019 11 11 hcw Sandra Stevenson
Cook Supervisor Sandra Stevenson, who has been part of the Queenscourt team since November 2010, was the focus of day three. Before starting work at Queenscourt, Sandra’s time and energy were spent raising her family but she also found time to embark on a three-year course in counselling which culminated with her being awarded a Diploma. When the time came for Sandra to look for a job, a position opened up at the hospice which, in her words “has changed my life.” Sandra is now part of the catering team who provide tasty and appealing meals for Queenscourt’s in-patient unit, ensuring those spending time at the hospice can enjoy their meal-times. Sandra says: “I love being part of the Queenscourt team. It’s a privilege to work with such fantastic people and to know we can make a difference to patients and their families’ lives. It’s always a delight to see the patients leave only a clean plate at the end of their meals.” Asked how she would describe Queenscourt in three words, Sandra replied: “Bittersweet, supportive, enriching.”

2019 11 11 hcw Sue Lovelock
On day four we spoke to Sue Lovelock who is PA to the Corporate Services Director & Estates Officer for Queenscourt. Sue has worked at Queenscourt for 13 years now and her dual role means that no two days are the same. Sue can be working on a variety of projects at any one time from organising essential building maintenance and refurbishment to taking minutes at Board Meetings. It is the diversity of Sue's role that she most enjoys and the fact that the work is quite project-driven with tangible outcomes for the hospice. Sue is currently overseeing the construction of a new car park that will provide much-needed additional parking for patients and their families. If Sue had to sum up Queenscourt in three words she would describe it as "amazing, special and challenging."

2019 11 11 hcw Jo Caddy
Jo Caddy, who is Head of HR & Volunteering for Queenscourt, was day five’s focus. Jo has worked at Queenscourt for six-and-a-half years now and oversees the recruitment and development of all of Team Queenscourt, including medical staff, non-medical staff and volunteers. Getting the right people into the right jobs is key to the successful running of the hospice, and Jo is at the heart of making the employment journey a positive and rewarding one for all concerned. Jo’s role is very people-centred and she enjoys working with such a passionate and friendly team in order to deliver the vital care and support that Queenscourt provides for patients and their families.
If Jo had to sum up Queenscourt in three words her would be "inspiring, family and dedicated.”

2019 11 11 hcw DannyGordon
Our penultimate blog focused on Danny Gordon who has been a Volunteer at Queenscourt for over five years. Following his retirement from the building trade, Danny decided to volunteer at the hospice having seen first-hand the wonderful care it provided for his sister. Danny describes volunteering at Queenscourt as the best thing he’s ever done and would highly recommend it to anyone. His volunteering role focuses on doing essential maintenance around the hospice, from checking water temperatures to fixing shelves. The diversity of the role means that Danny works across all areas of the hospice, and he thoroughly enjoys being part of Team Queenscourt. If Danny had to sum up Queenscourt in three words he would describe it as “happy, enjoyable and teamwork.”

2019 11 11 hcw Joyce Brady
For our final blog of the week we spoke to Joyce Brady who is a cleaner at Queenscourt. Joyce has worked at Queenscourt for seven years and finds her role really rewarding. Keeping the hospice clean and tidy is essential to creating a welcoming and pleasant environment for patients and their families. Joyce takes pride in her work and enjoys the fact that her role brings her into contact with so many people who are working for and being supported by Queenscourt. If Joyce had to sum up Queenscourt in three words she would describe it as “supportive, understanding and caring.”

Sign Up Online for Queenscourt’s 10th Annual Santa Sprint

Queenscourt will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of our fundraising Santa Sprint in December and we are calling on supporters old and new to sign up today and join in the festivities.

The event, which this year is kindly being sponsored by Silcock Leisure Group, will see hundreds of Santas take to the streets of Southport on Sunday, December 8. Registration will open at 9.30am with the fun run starting at 11am.

We would love you to get in the Christmas spirit and join in this fun event, which has raised over £90,000 over the last nine years and is suitable for all the family - even your pet dog can participate.

In this 10th anniversary year, there will be both a 3K and 5K route for you to walk, jog or run. The routes are also suitable for wheelchairs, mobility scooters, pushchairs and buggies, so there’s even more reason to take part.

Every participant will receive a Santa suit to wear as they make their way along the route, which starts at Southport Pier and goes around the Marine Lake. They will also receive a medal, a complimentary hot drink and Bidfoods will also be giving away free mince pies on the finish line.

Registration is open now at a cost of £20 for adults; £10 for under 16s or £50 for a family of two adults and two children.

Your Santa Sprint registration covers the cost of the event and your Santa suit, but we’d love you all to drum up your own support in the form of sponsorship to maximise the amount of money raised for Queenscourt.

Dianne Gillespie, Event Fundraiser, said: “We are really looking forward to our annual Santa Sprint and have high hopes that this year’s 10th anniversary event will be even bigger and better than before.

“We are grateful to have the sponsorship of Silcock Leisure Group and the support of everyone else who will help make the event a huge success. The Santa Sprint is always such a fun occasion that raises invaluable income for the hospice.

“Queenscourt gives vital care and support to patients from Southport, Formby and West Lancashire completely free of charge. We can’t add days to lives, but with donations from fundraising events such as the Santa Sprint, we can add life to days.

“So, let's bring a flash of red around Southport with hundreds of Santa Claus' spreading the festive fun and burn a few cheeky calories ready for the Christmas holidays.”

Queenscourt’s New £2 Discount Store Is Proving Popular With Bargain Hunters

A new discount shop has been added to Queenscourt’s network of retail outlets, and it is proving very popular with shoppers looking to bag a bargain. Our Bispham Road £2 discount shop offers a modern and welcoming shopping experience and is packed full of stock which is updated on a regular basis. The shop stocks women's and men’s clothes, shoes and accessories along with children’s clothes and shoes. Why not pop down, grab yourself a bargain and support your local hospice at the same time? 

Neil Capel, Manager of the new Bispham Road shop, said: “I am delighted with the response from shoppers so far. It is going very well and we’ve been really busy, but we’d always like more people to pop in. “We are hoping that those who have already been in to see what we have on offer, will help spread the word and encourage others to check us out.” 

The new shop is located at 88-90 Bispham Road, Southport, PR9 7DF, and is open from 9am until 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday. Please contact the Bispham Road shop directly on Tel No: 01704 807577 with any queries. The new discount store adds to our six other retail outlets which sell a variety of items ranging from men’s and women's clothes, shoes and accessories, to toys, books, CDs, games and DVDs. Some of our shops also sell bric-a-brac and other unique items. 

We wouldn’t be able to run our shops without our teams of volunteers who give up their spare time to support Queenscourt in this way. We are currently recruiting more retail volunteers so would love to hear from you if you’d like to help out in a shop. There are two roles within our shops - one which includes meeting, greeting and assisting customers, helping with shop window displays, keeping the sales areas tidy and sorting our donated stock, and a second role which includes all of the above, plus till work. If you’d like to find out more, please contact our Area Retail Manager, Sue Newth on 01704 544645 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Star Trekk 2019 raises over £77,000 for Queenscourt

The 13th annual Queenscourt Hospice Star Trekk proved a resounding success earlier this year, attracting over 1,000 entrants who between them have raised more than £77,000.

The sponsored 10K night walk around the streets of Southport attracted entrants of all ages who were all determined to raise vital funds for Queenscourt. The amazing amount raised so far from this year’s event, brings the total raised since it began to well over £820,000!

As in previous years, friends, family members, work colleagues and neighbours had joined forces to show their support for Queenscourt with many taking part in memory of a loved one, while others simply wanted to do their bit for charity.

The evening began at Casablanca, Southport Pleasureland where there was the chance for the walkers to soak up the festive atmosphere and enjoy the pre-Trekk entertainment.

Event Fundraiser, Dianne Gillespie, said: “The event was a fantastic success with all participants entering into the festive feel. We are enormously grateful to each and every person who took part and also the volunteers who helped on the night”.

“I would also like to express my thanks to all the organisations and businesses from across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire who got behind the event.”

Money raised by Star Trekk 2019 will help to ensure that here at Queenscourt we can continue to provide free, high-quality care for patients with far advanced, progressive, incurable illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life at each new stage.

We help to do this both at the hospice and at home through our In-Patient Unit, Queenscourt Connect and Queenscourt at Home services. We also send specialist nurses and doctors into hospital and into people’s homes to advise and support patients, families and the frontline staff caring for them.

It costs over £400 an hour, 365 days a year to keep Queenscourt running and we rely heavily on community support and donations to do this. In all, 96p of every £1 donated is spent on providing and supporting direct patient care.

Fundraising events like Star Trekk are important to our continued success so please save the date for our next major outdoor fundraiser which will be the Queenscourt Annual Santa Sprint taking place from Silcocks Funland in Southport at 11am on Sunday, December 8, with registration from 9.30am.

Zack’s Award for Fundraising

Volunteers play a vital role in securing the future of Queenscourt – whether they are fundraising, helping at our shops, working in the community or at the hospice itself.

We currently have approximately 600 volunteers who between them donate around 10,000 hours of their time each month.

We have volunteers of all ages and abilities and can now boast an awardwinning schoolboy among them.

Zack Dowling, aged 12 and a pupil at Range High School, recently won the Neil Armstrong Award at the seventh annual Believe Awards held at the Hilton, Liverpool One, for “going above and beyond.”

The Believe Awards were set up by Bootle-based charity, Ykids in 2012 to recognise and champion young people who are unsung heroes. 

Zack certainly fits that bill as he has raised more than £2,000 for Queenscourt over the past three years after taking part in his first Santa Sprint at the age of just two-and-a-half.

Zack, whose nana Mary Hudson volunteers in the kitchen at Queenscourt, recently visited the hospice to show off his award and certificate.

He met members of the catering team and Helen Birch, Director of Nursing Services, among others.

The £2,000 Zack has raised so far for Queenscourt has helped us to buy a new dishwasher, some new pans and a canteen of cutlery for our kitchen. Zack became interested in Queenscourt after his nana became a volunteer here over three years ago.

“Every time I came home, Zack wanted to know a bit more about it, about the people in there and how they were looked after,” said Mary.

“He knew I worked in the kitchen and couldn’t understand why we didn’t have a dishwasher so decided he wanted to raise money towards one.”

Zack’s first fundraiser was a sponsored swim which raised £700 and other fundraisers followed, including a triathlon which raised a further £950.

The rest was made up from a cake sale and sweet jar guessing game at school.

He is now planning his next one which will be a sponsored bike ride around Southport and money raised will go towards buying new trays for the patients at Queenscourt.

“We are so proud of him,” said Mary.

“He has worked so hard to help the hospice and is so passionate about it. He has such a kind heart.”

Rachel Kennedy, Community Fundraiser at Queenscourt Hospice, said: “We are very grateful to Zack for all his fundraising efforts which have enabled us to buy much-needed equipment for our kitchen.

“It is wonderful to see someone as young as Zack devoting so much of his time to organising events and raising money.

“His win at the Believe Awards was certainly well deserved and we congratulate him.”

Queenie’s Roadshow Proves a Huge Success for Queenscourt

As youngsters head back to school after the summer break, Queenscourt Hospice is already making plans for its second round of roadshows following their success last term.

Engaging with people of all ages is essential to the continued success of Queenscourt which is why it launched its first ever Queenie’s Roadshow earlier this year in a bid to build links with the younger generation.

The hospice’s mascot Queenie and members of its Fundraising Team visited several local schools, from nurseries through to high schools, to tell pupils all about the incredible work done at Queenscourt and out in the communities of Southport, Formby and West Lancs.

The initiative proved extremely popular and not only helped spread the word about Queenscourt’s work, but also proved to be a wonderful fundraiser for the hospice.

As a result of the school visits, an amazing £5,220.93 has been raised for the hospice. Some of the pupils involved have already visited Queenscourt for a tour of its facilities and to hand over their cheques, while others will be visiting in the near future.

Queenie and her roadshow’s first port of call was Birkdale Primary School which was followed by visits to YMCA Sefton Nursery, Linaker Primary School, Farnborough Road Infants School, Birkdale High School, Norwood Primary School and Marshside Primary School.

As well as delivering school assemblies, Queenie and her team attended several school sports’ days throughout July where they cheered on the children while again raising the hospice’s profile and collecting funds.

Some schools staged their own sponsored events in support of the hospice, such as an afternoon of Queenie-related activities when the children dressed in yellow and black costumes.

Rachel Kennedy, Community Fundraiser at Queenscourt, said: “The children have really engaged with us and were keen to know all about our work and how they can help us. Having Queenie with us certainly helped grab their attention.

“The roadshows have been a resounding success and we look forward to getting back out on the road again next year and visiting even more schools.”

It is hoped the roadshow will grow in popularity next year and if you would like Queenie to visit your school or nursery in 2020 please register your interest with the Queenscourt Hospice Fundraising Team by calling 01704 517 420 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Snowdon climb by TSB Ormskirk team raises £750 for Queenscourt

Queenscourt delivers an exceptional level of care for local people with life-limiting illnesses, when they need it the most. It takes a team of 180 staff (Clinical and Non-Clinical) and over 600 volunteers to ensure that patients in Southport, West Lancs and Formby receive the best possible palliative care, free of charge, 365 days a year.

We support over 1800 patients each year, the majority of whom are cared for in their own homes, and we couldn’t deliver this vital care without the generous support of the wider community.

This includes corporate support, and we are so grateful to all of the organisations and businesses who continue to fundraise for us, including the intrepid team at TSB Ormskirk who took part in a Corporate Challenge Event on behalf of Queenscourt, which saw them climb Mount Snowdon.

Customers, families and friends of staff at TSB Ormskirk have voted to support Queenscourt Hospice as the branch’s local charity partner for the past four years and have helped to raise almost £7000 for Queenscourt.

“TSB believe in supporting our local communities and decided that a great way to do this would be for the actual community to choose a charity to support,” said Susie Rickers, a local banker at TSB Ormskirk.

“Queenscourt is a charity that is clearly close to many people’s hearts whether through personal experience or through having family or friends needing their support. We have customers who have shared their experiences with us - some who are going through treatment at the moment.”

Susie added: “Our customers have been amazing with the support they have shown us over the years, giving generously for every cake sale or raffle that we have organised. However, when it was suggested that we take part in the Snowdon Challenge, it seemed a great opportunity to get out of our comfort zone and really rise to the occasion.”

Two TSB Ormskirk employees, Susie Rickers and Tom Callaghan; and three of their friends, Dave Rimmer, Nikki Stutt and Gee Calderbank, took part in the return climb of nine miles up and down the Llamberis path in aid of Queenscourt.

“It was a tough climb and very emotional at times, but extremely rewarding and thanks to all the support of our loyal customers and family we raised an amazing £750,” said Susie.

If you would like to sign up for a Challenge Event in support of Queenscourt Hospice, such as the forthcoming Southport Seaside 10k, Scouse 5K, or if you would like to have a go on the longest and fastest zip line in Europe at Zip World in Snowdonia, go to our Challenge Events Page.
