The pandemic has hugely impacted the hospice, both financially and operationally. We are committed to fight back this year with our Resilience Appeal and generate more income than ever to ensure we continue to provide specialist care for our patients and their families.
The appeal sets out to raise £250K to contribute towards the £4.3 million annual running costs of the hospice of which 75% is made up through fundraising efforts and support from the local community through donations, taking part in events, joining the lottery, making a regular gift, shopping with WH Retail or gifts in Wills.
An oppportunity for everyone to get involved...

A special message from Wakefield Hospice supporter Jane McDonald
We are grateful to singer and presenter Jane McDonald for backing our appeal. Jane McDonald was the guest of honour at Wakefield Hospice’s ‘Lunch with Jane’ in May, which raised over £12,000 for the hospice and saw the launch of the £250K Resilience Appeal.
“Hello, I’m Jane McDonald and I want to talk to you about Wakefield Hospice’s Resilience Appeal. Like many charities the hospice has been hit hard by the pandemic both financially and operationally, but they are committed to fighting back this year. The hospice provides a truly invaluable service to our local community, not only for the patients, but also for their friends and families. That’s why I’m also backing the Resilience Appeal to raise money so the hospice can keep supporting the families and local community that rely on its services. I know with your support we can help them to reach their target of £250K so please please get involved in any way you can and support the campaign – it’s so vital.”
