Stand with Katharine House and make every moment matter Donate This year, we face a budgeted deficit of £435,000 due to rising healthcare costs and decreasing government funding as a proportion of our costs. £435,000 is roughly what it costs to keep our hospice open for one month - imagine if Katharine House was only able to open for 11 months of the year. Hundreds of patients and their families living with life-limiting illnesses would miss out on vital specialist support. Please stand with Katharine House and make every moment matter for a local family. Thank you for your support - we simply couldn't do it without you.
