Your support this year has been incredible, at a time when Mountbatten’s work has never been more needed. You have stood by Mountbatten and your own community even though your personal situation may have also been tough.
Over the last year, our dedicated, expert teams have continued to work tirelessly so that no-one needing our careand support has been left alone. We could not have done this without you.
Send love, as we face a Christmas like never before.
This Christmas will be like no other for all of us. But for the vulnerable people we care for and support - those living with death, dying and bereavement, it is likely to be an even more challenging time.
More people will be isolated and left alone with their illness and bereavement because of Coronavirus. Each year, those people we support look forward to our annual Mountbatten Christmas social traditions; our Christmas fairs and concerts, our carol concerts, coming together to celebrate Light up a Life at the hospice.
Although our doctors, Mountbatten nurses and carers will continue to visit those who need care and support the most within the places that they live, as the majority of our events are cancelled due to the current situation, we will need to visit and stay in contact with more people than ever over the Christmas period. We need your help to show that love, not loneliness, really matters.
How your support will help patients and their families this Christmas.
When you donate to our Christmas appeal, this is how your love and kindness will make a difference.

Any donation you can give will help the most vulnerable people in our community and if we manage to raise more funds than we need to support our patients this Christmas, we will use the additional money to continue our services.
As we look forward, the future can feel uncertain. But with your support, together we can continue to build a community where people facing death, dying and bereavement across the Southampton and West Hampshire get the expert care, friendship, love and support they need, not just this Christmas, but throughout the year ahead and into the future.
