Pay for a Day

When a family has been given the devastating diagnosis of a complex or incurable condition, they need to turn somewhere for help and support.

Havens Hospices can be that place – with your help.

The specialist care and support we give to patients at Fair Havens and Little Havens is completely free of charge for as long as we’re needed, but can only continue thanks to the generosity of our supporters.

What is Pay for a Day?

Pay for a Day is a way of supporting a very tangible part of our hospice care. We’ve worked out that it costs around £6,000 per day per hospice to provide care for all the patients who need us.

This includes the cost of our nurses, carers and support staff like cooks and housekeepers. It also takes into consideration the cost of running the building like our utility bills as well as medical and personal care supplies. All of this is 'Making every day count' for our children, patients and families who need our hospice care.

By sponsoring a specific date, we can ensure that your donation pays for the care that is given within your chosen hospice during those 24 hours.

How does it work?
  • Raise £6,000 – this may be a one-off donation by an individual or a group or people. It may be the sum of money you’ve raised through fundraising at your place of work, school or club. Many people take part in memory of a loved one
  • Choose a day – it could be a date special to you like an anniversary or birthday of someone close to you who has died. You can also sponsor public holidays or a date that is significant to your staff or members
  • Visit the hospice – it may not be possible for everyone, but we can arrange a visit to your chosen hospice on the day that you’ve sponsored for refreshments and to meet some of the Care Team who you’ve supported and they can tell you what they’ve done that day thanks to your donation
  • You’ll also receive a certificate of support and acknowledgement on our website and possibly social media if you’re willing to share photos and details about why you’ve taken part
