New Hospice Fundraiser for Skipton and Settle Encourages the Local Community to Support Manorlands in 2015.

New Manorlands Hospice Fundraiser, Debra Chalmers, understands and appreciates the value of the services provided by the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.


“In December 2012 my Dad was able to move to the Manorlands Hospice from Airedale Hospital. This was very important to my Dad, providing him with a comfortable, private and peaceful space. I was able to spend precious time with my Dad. Even though my Dad’s time at the hospice was brief, I will always be grateful to Manorlands for the care they provided at such a difficult time.”


“Since joining the team at Manorlands I have learnt more about the incredible care and support that is provided, including the Day Therapy Unit and the Community Support Team. I feel all the services are vitally important.”


Debra became a Hospice Fundraiser in December 2014 and will be supporting fundraising in the Skipton and Settle areas.


“I feel privileged to have this role at Manorlands, Sue Ryder. I want to make sure other people have the chance to access the incredible care provided at Manorlands Hospice and from the community support team.”

Manorlands needs to raise over £1.6 million a year in donations to maintain its provision for people with life-limiting illnesses.


“We are very grateful to all those who continue to support Manorlands. However, we need more support to fundraise. We are looking for volunteers to organise and support local events and fundraising activities in the Skipton and Settle areas.


“We are looking for volunteers to join new Local Fundraising Groups, which are vital in helping us raise much needed funds.  This is a fantastic opportunity to get together with other volunteers, organise and run your own fundraising events, while raising income and increasing awareness of Manorlands, in your local area.”


“We are also looking for Fundraising Community Ambassadors in the Skipton and Settle areas. This is a flexible volunteer role to suit you. You can help us by supporting local events, managing collecting tins, distributing information and raising awareness.”


If any local groups or organisations in Skipton and Settle areas would like to know more about Manorlands, the support provided locally and how the local community can give support, we would welcome the opportunity to give a talk to your members.
