Heart of Our Community – Spring Appeal

Support our nurses so they can keep Martlets caring

As we all continue to feel the impacts of COVID 19 we need your support to provide vital hospice care across our community.

Martlets is at the heart of our community, working across Brighton, Hove and the Havens we deliver vital hospice care to people living with a terminal illness, whether that is at our Hospice site in Hove or in people’s homes.

Our small community team are working hard to face the ongoing challenges of COVID 19. Our clinical nurse specialists are supporting people across our community who desperately need pain management, symptom relief and emotional support. The team really are in the heart of our community, each day they cover an area of 34 square miles across Brighton & Hove and the Havens, delivering vital hospice care to people with complex needs - but we need your help.

We’re doing our best but working through COVID has felt relentless. Your support means so much to us as our resources are stretched to the max right now
— Louise Gregory, clinical nurse specialist

Martlets is looking to the future and doing everything we can to hold strong through the pandemic. However, it is unlikely we will be able to run largescale events again this year and, with our shops closed, we face a significant fundraising shortfall.

Martlets relies on community fundraising for most of its income and it will be some time before we can raise funds by our usual means, so we are asking for our community’s help.
