Compassionate Companies Network

Dear Compassionate Company,

My name is Annabelle Holloway, and I am the Corporate Partnerships Manager here at St Mary’s Hospice. We are the local hospice for the Furness and South Lakes area, providing free end-of-life care, comfort, and emotional support for those living with life-shortening illnesses and their loved ones. We are here for our patients and those closest to them from the moment of diagnosis and for as long as they need us. Our care is provided at the hospice in Ulverston, out in the community, and in people’s homes, across our whole footprint 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

I would like to invite you to join a very exciting opportunity. An opportunity that will help increase your brand visibility, reach new audiences, and demonstrate your commitment to our local community.

This year St Mary’s Hospice turns 35 years old. To celebrate 35 years of care and to help ensure we are still here for another 35 years, we are looking for local ‘Compassionate Companies’ to commit to donating £35 for 35 months. Our services are free to all but they are not free to run. We only receive one-fifth of our funding from the NHS, which means that the care of 8 out of 10 of our patients is funded by voluntary donations from our community, from businesses like yours.

By signing up as a St Mary’s Hospice ‘Compassionate Company’, you will pledge to donate £35 every month for 35 months, and in return, you will receive the following:

  • An invitation to quarterly networking meetings with fellow ‘Compassionate Companies’ (please see below companies already involved)
  • A unique and dated ‘Compassionate Company’ logo to display on your company’s website, social media, and any marketing material
  • Your company’s logo on a rolling banner and on a dedicated ‘Compassionate Companies’ page on the St Mary’s Hospice website
  • ‘Compassionate Companies’ Certificate to display
  • Social media and press coverage throughout the 35 months – we currently have over 10,000 followers on Facebook and receive regular coverage in The Mail and The Westmorland Gazette.

The above offer is open for the first 35 businesses to sign up.  Book your place now and help give back to your community.  Simply contact me via or call 07376004183.

We’ve pulled together a handy leaflet with everything you need to know and all the details you need to sign up now. 

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best Wishes,

Annabelle Holloway
Corporate Partnerships Manager
St Mary’s Hospice
