The Royal Trinity Hospice Christmas Fair has been running for over 32 years.
Royal Trinity Hospice, founded in 1891 as the first hospice in the UK, provides the only dedicated palliative and end-of-life care and support for 7 boroughs spanning Central and Southwest London. Over the last year, Trinity cared for 647 patients at any one time, that includes people facing life-threatening illness such as cancer or cardiac, respiratory, renal and neurological diseases.
Each year Royal Trinity Hospice cares for 2,500 patients either in their own homes or in its Inpatient Unit but demand for their services is expected to increase by 27% by 2040. Care outside the hospice itself is increasingly important with more people wanting to die at home. The Community Nursing team made 1,977 home visits and 25,333 phone calls in the last year alone. Our Christmas fair helps to fund these nurses who give this critical end-of-life care at home.
Last year we raised over £30,000 for our charity.
As well as our traditional fair at St Luke's our Virtual Fair has the added advantage of reaching a wider audience and you will also benefit from the Royal Trinity Hospice connections in our community, including publicity in their monthly newsletter with a circulation of over 6000.
Celebrate Christmas at St Luke's and online with more than 40 stallholders selling jewellery, toys, gadgets, Christmas cards and decorations, fashion items, beauty products, books, gifts, food, and more. Do all your shopping on our site and support Royal Trinity Hospice.
The hospice depends on local support and dedicated fundraisers, such as this Christmas fair.
