Consilia Partner Charity 2021 – Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice in Headingley, Leeds
Consilia Legal are proud to announce that they have chosen Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice as their chosen charity for 2021. Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice is in Headingley Leeds, they provide expert palliative care and also support people living with a life-limiting condition, and support their loved ones and family.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic Sue Ryder Wheatfields is now operating reduced services to concentrate their resources where they are most needed. The Hospice In Patient Unit is open and the Hospice Community Team are still caring for people both at their homes and now virtually. They have expanded their Bereavement Support services, offering support to those across Leeds who need their support at this difficult time.
Services at Sue Ryder Wheafields are not currently at risk, but Sue Ryder as an organisation is experiencing a very concerning drop in funds which is clearly not sustainable in the long term. They urgently need to raise money now to avoid having to cut services in six months’ time. It costs around 5 million to run Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice a year. With all events cancelled, other fundraising activities limited and a large proportion of their shops being forced to close once again, they are appealing to their supporters to help them through this difficult time.
Consilia Legal will be trying to raise as much money as possible this year to support this fantastic charity. Consilia Legal also offer free consultations to new clients, simply asking for a donation to be made to Wheatfields Hospice in exchange for their legal services. The firm chose the hospice as it is a local charity which has helped many families in the region, the work that they carry out is truly amazing and they need our support more than ever.
Please see below a list of the typical items the money donated will be used for:
£5 Could provide a memory box for a bereaved child. They can store sentimental trinkets inside to help them cope with their loss.
£13 Could pay for a patient’s meals for a day, including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
