TOTAL UK'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Prince of Wales Crisis Appeal
The Coronavirus outbreak has added much more pressure to one of the charities we support; The Prince of Wales Hospice, as almost overnight their income has dried up. This will have a severe impact on their ability to provide the expert and loving care local families rely on. They rely on the generosity of the local community for the majority of their funding, without donations they couldn’t keep the doors open. And now, in these extraordinary times they are anticipating a loss of income of at least £500,000. Fundraising activities are having to be cancelled or postponed and people are staying at home and out of their shops.
Their nursing angels and incredible doctors are determined that to provide the same levels of personal, round-the-clock care for local patients and their families at what is the very worst of times for them.
They cannot do this alone. Will you stand with them and make a donation now to ensure the funds are there, as we look to find extra staff and extra vital equipment to keep care available day and night?

On behalf of everyone at The Prince of Wales Hospice, thank you so very much.
