Welcome to our Christmas page. Here you will find information on the many ways that you and your loved ones can enjoy the festive season with us, while supporting the work we do.

Last year, for so many of us, we couldn’t enjoy the traditional things that we all love to do at Christmastime. To keep each other safe, we experienced a very different Christmas that wasn’t the one we might have chosen. This year we’re all hoping to have the Christmas we choose, once again – a chance to revisit those traditions and create the memories with our loved ones, that make this season so special.

Spend Christmas with us and support patients and their families in your community

Your support means so much to us and the people that you are helping. By spending your Christmas with us, you can be sure that while you enjoy a Christmas of your Choice, you are also enabling local families to create their own special memories with their loved ones, at a time when they need it most.

Please take a look at our upcoming events below and be sure to check out our online Christmas card shop. For further information on our events and to book your place click the relevant link. Places are limited on a number of our events, so we advise booking early to avoid disappointment.

Our Christmas Appeal

For people and their families receiving end of life care, choice is one of the most important things our Hospice team can offer. Our care is about those special things, it’s about memory making and spending precious time together. And none of that would be possible without your support.

Will you make a gift to help more families get the Christmas of their Choice?
