Give a Cuddle this Christmas!

We have been overwhelmed by the amazing support already given to our Give a Cuddle this Christmas campaign - with colleagues getting together for a sponsored walk, friends doing a wing walk and lots of generous donations coming in by post and online!

Due to your incredible support, we have raised enough to buy one cuddle bed and well on our way to raising enough to buy a second. We have now increased our target so that we can not only purchase 2 cuddle beds for our Inpatient Unit but also replace some of the other standard beds. If our new target is exceeded the additional funds will go to further improvements to the patient environment at Highland Hospice.

Thank you for supporting our Give a Cuddle this Christmas campaign, we are so grateful for any donation you are able to give.



    Gillian's Story

    By donating towards our special 'Give a Cuddle this Christmas' appeal you'll be helping patients like Gillian.

    Gillian has kidney cancer and has spent time in our Inpatient Unit to help manage her symptoms and pain. During her time at the hospice, Gillian's husband Allan slept by her side in a recliner chair. Gillian says,

    'A cuddle bed would have made such a difference...Allan just wanted to be as close to me as he could be. We would have loved to have been able to use a cuddle bed so we could just be close and could comfort each other through what we are going through together.'
