Funding Crisis in 2020
Every year Archangel Michael Hospice needs to raise around €300,000.00. This enables the hospice to continue to provide expert palliative, end of life and respite care. This year we have, and are still, facing a major funding crisis.
As a result of the Corona Virus Pandemic. The charity shops were closed. Fundraising events were cancelled. Consequently this has become a very worrying and challenging year.
We are grateful that the “Charity Shops” are now open. And we would like to thank St Michael’s Hospice Charity & all the shop volunteers. Together they raise hundreds of thousands each year. From the shops and by fundraising.
Our grateful thanks and appreciation also goes to the many people, organizations and businesses continuing to generously support the Hospice.
Below are just a few of the many people and organizations that have recently donated their time and money to help the hospice. Thank you all so much.

Finally, we realize that there are so many people and organizations that we have been unable to thank personally in this post. However, we appreciate your kindness and generosity always. And send our grateful thanks for your continued support of Archangel Michael Hospice.
Without funding the continued upkeep of these vital services would not be possible.
