Who we are
East Cheshire Hospice provides provides compassionate and expert care to adults diagnosed with life limiting illness. We offer a haven of care and calm for the communities of Buxton, Congleton, High Legh, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton, Wilmslow and everywhere inbetween.Offering gold-standard care, compassion, medical and emotional support is what we do every single day. Whilst we provide exceptional and holistic care for people with life-limiting illnesses, we also help their carers and families to cope and even smile through difficult times.
The word ‘Hospice’ is from the Latin for ‘hospitality’ and it sums up our approach: we’re here to make every day count for our patients, their carers and families.
How you're helping
All the profits from the Virtual Balloon Race will go to East Cheshire Hospice, to help us to continue delivering exceptional care to our patients, their carers and families.
We are a truly local charity supported by our local community. This year, we will receive less than 20% of our running costs from the government, so we need to raise over 80% our costs each and every day. We need to raise over £7,500 every single day – that’s £5.21 a minute!
90p in every £1 that is donated to the Hospice goes directly to provide patient care, so you can be sure that your support will make a real difference to the people we help.
