Sue Ryder St John's Hospice

Last year Sue Ryder provided 105,000 hours of support to patients and their families across Bedfordshire.

Our expert care is free, but it costs us £3.7m per year to provide it, which equates to £10,000 per day.

What can I do to support Sue Ryder St John's Hospice?

It’s thanks to the tireless fundraising of our supporters that we’re able to continue providing our expert care to so many people in our community. 

Not only do our supporters raise a huge amount of money towards our services, they also help to spread the word about Sue Ryder so more people know about what we do and how we can help.

We urgently need more supporters to organise events and take part in fundraising challenges.
Fundraising for Sue Ryder is a great way to meet new people, help to develop your skills and ensure that we can continue to provide care to local families when they need us the most.
