  • They provide specialised medical and nursing care for people with life limiting illness.
  • Their care is free of charge.
  • They have 130 outstanding employees and 600 dedicated volunteers.
  • Care for 1 in 6 patients is funded by gifts in Wills.
  • To stay open they need £11,500 every day.
  • They rely on a community of friends, supporters and local businesses to raise these funds.

Cathy MacCracken, partner at Birchall Blackburn Law, said:“St Catherine’s provide an invaluable service to those with terminal illnesses and their families in the local area. We have personal experience, going back many years,  of helping their clients and even some of our family members have been there and have received amazing care and compassion from the St Catherine’s team of professionals and volunteers. We hope other businesses in the area will feel that they too can help.”
