Dear Supporters
 
What a wonderful summer this is proving to be; the garden at Hospice is looking fantastic. We entered the RJA&HS All Island Garden Competition for the first time and I am delighted to tell you that not only did we win the Grainger Challenge Cup for our class, but we were also awarded the overall Judges' Award for Garden Design. I am so proud of the garden; it gives so much pleasure to so many and I am especially pleased that the work of our garden volunteers has been recognised in this way.
 
In May, Nurse Champion Gail Edwards and I were invited to the World Congress of the European Association of Palliative Care, to present on the implementation of the Gold Standards Framework. Over three years, we have offered this end of life education and training programme to all care providers, making Jersey the first jurisdiction to take a whole system approach. It was a real privilege to be there and a very inspiring time for us as attendees.
 
In my last note to you, I told you about the steps we were taking to support children and families in the community. The number of referrals we have received into this service, has far exceeded our expectations. We now offer emotional support, respite in the home, a play group for under 5s and provide a range of clinical support to families in the community and on Robin Ward.  The families we are supporting  face  incredibly challenging circumstances, and knowing our services  make a difference in their lives, is a huge motivation to do more.
 
Thank you for all of your support and good luck to any of you who bought a Million Pound Lottery Ticket. The draw is less than a couple of weeks away!

Five minutes with ...
There are a diverse range of roles within Jersey Hospice Care offering support to our patients and their families. To give you an insight into what we do, here we spend five minutes with a member of our team to find out more. 

Today we're chatting to Julie Jubb, Retail Manager, following the success of the recent Preloved to Reloved pop up shop.

 
When did you start at Jersey Hospice Care? I started working at Hospice in March 2009
 
How do you make a difference at Jersey Hospice Care? I'm always striving to increase the funds raised through the St Ouen shop

What did you do before you worked here? Before I worked at Jersey Hospice Care, I worked as a florist - a job that I loved!

What are your plans for the next six months? I would like to continue growing the social media presence for our Fundraising Shops, selling more items online and organising further pop up shops for Preloved to Reloved, which is for the designer items we receive.

What do you enjoy most about working for Jersey Hospice Care? It's fabulous because of the variety in what I do, meeting our wonderful customers and generous donors. I love having the ability to improve sales and work with an amazing team both at the shop and Jersey Hospice Care on Mont Cochon.


What do you enjoy doing in your free time? I'm a keen runner and trying hard to be a triathlete!
All our Million Pound Lottery tickets have sold!
It was very exciting in the Income Generation office last week, as the last of our Million Pound Lottery tickets was sold.

Thank you to everyone who has bought a ticket, either on their own or in a syndicate. With your support, we have raised £800,000. This amazing amount contributes to us caring for over 1,000 people in Jersey every year, affected by a life limiting condition, either through the exceptional care given by our Specialist Palliative Care nurses, Physiotherapists or Bereavement and Emotional Support counsellors. 

We are now all looking forward to the Live Draw, which takes place on Friday 6 September at The Royal Yacht Hotel. The doors open at 17:00 and we will be joining the ITV Channel TV news live at 18:15 for the draw of the big prize of one million pounds. Everyone is very welcome to join us.

Good luck!
Tap to Give

We are excited to introduce a simple way of giving to Jersey Hospice Care, embracing new technology with the roll out of contactless Tap to Give donation boxes across the island.

The Tap to Give donation boxes allow people to make a donation to Hospice quickly and easily at one of our partner locations. They are very easy to use – if you would like to make a donation, simply select the amount and then hold your contactless card or device to the front of the box. All major cards are accepted, as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

The first donation boxes are being trialled in the Channel Islands Co-operative Society’s two Grande Marché stores, as well as Café JAC, Bean Around the World, Pizza Hut and La Mare Vineyards. With over 120 partners currently supporting us with cash collection tins , we hope that further partners will come on board to support the cash-free initiative and help care for the community.

Passers-by will also be able to Tap to Give as they go past our Town Fundraising Shop in Union Street. A bright window display features the new device, which you can tap as you go by to donate a fixed amount.

This new initiative has already celebrated significant success across a range of charities in the UK. In an increasingly cashless society, we’re hoping that it will make it quicker and easier for people to donate while they are out and about, without the need to carry any cash.

Up coming events and initiatives

On behalf of the Community Bereavement Service, we would like to invite you to an Evening of Remembrance for families and friends to remember their loved ones. It will take place on Tuesday 10 September at Jersey Hospice Care, Mont Cochon. The service will start at 18:30.

Refreshments will be served. 

We do hope you will be able to join us.
