Our charity partnership with Hospice UK is something we’re all very proud of. It's the UK’s leading charity supporting hospice care across the country. By providing compassionate end-of-life care and making a huge difference for to the lives of patients and their families.
Across the UK, hospices play an important role in providing vital end of life care and assistance. They help people both physically and emotionally and make sure that a patient’s family have the support they need too.
Hospices are charities, who support people in their local community. It’s this local involvement that makes working with hospices and Hospice UK a perfect choice for Yorkshire Bank and our sister bank, Clydesdale. Together we’ve raised over £5.8 million for our charity partnership since 2008. Across the UK, hospices rely on donations to keep providing much-needed care. It’s estimated that it costs £12,000 each day just to keep a hospice running, making hospice care one of the UK’s largest community fundraising causes.
In addition to all the money our staff have raised for Hospice UK, they’ve also donated more than 40,000 volunteering hours to their local hospices too. This is vital as hospices rely heavily on support through volunteering and work with more than 125,000 volunteers to support the hospice care sector each year.
Hospices continue to need support to maintain the wonderful services they provide. If you’d like to show your support then please visit Hospice UK’s website to find out more, hospiceuk.org/support-us. (Opens in new window)
