This Valentine’s Day we’re on a mission to raise awareness of our special kind of care and how we urgently need more donations to reach those who need it most.
Each year the team at Queenscourt gives vital care to over 800 local people with progressive and incurable illnesses. But we can’t do this alone. We rely on the support of people like you.
If you are someone who has been touched by our care you’ll know how important it is that we keep supporting local families. We’re appealing to our local community to show the love for your local hospice by making a special donation. With the average spend on Valentine’s Day being around £45 there’s plenty of love to go around. Could you spend a little less and make a donation to Queenscourt?

We’ve asked some of our supporters why they love Queenscourt
John’s Queenscourt story began when his wife Sue was cared for by the team at the hospice in 2013, in the later stages of her illness. The support given to his wife and family inspired John to give something back and become a volunteer.
“I know first-hand the difference Queenscourt makes at such a difficult time. I was so grateful for the care and sensitivity shown to my wife and the support given to me and my family”
Debbie’s mum Joan sadly died from breast cancer in 2016 having just celebrated her 75th birthday. Joan and her family were supported through the last year of her illness by the team at Queenscourt, both in the hospice and at home.
“Queenscourt gave us the gift of precious and quality time with Mum. I have no regrets we did everything we wanted to and made lots of special memories that I will treasure forever”
Emma’s mum Jane lost her fight against cancer in 2015. The family were given support both in the hospice and at home. Living several miles away the family were given access to the special house next to the hospice so they could be near to their mum and make the most of their time together.
“The staff and volunteers at Queenscourt are amazing. They did everything they could to get my mum home, which is where she wanted to be”
Lynn’s mum and dad, Edith and Geoff, tragically died within a few months of each other in 2013. Edith and Geoff were cared for throughout their illnesses both at the hospice and at home. It was a understandably a very difficult time for the family.
“It was devastating losing both mum and dad so close together. They deserved the best possible care which is what they got at Queenscourt. Nothing was too much trouble”
