The Charities Claremont Supports

Our 2019 Charity – St Luke’s Hospice

St Luke’s look after people over 18 from across the Sheffield region, with all kinds of terminal illnesses, including end stage neurological, heart, kidney and lung conditions, cancer and HIV. Each year, they help around 1,800 patients – some of them come to the hospice but many more are looked after at home by our team of community nurses, who help treat and alleviate pain, support and counsel and in some cases, help patients to die at home, if that’s what they want. It’s not just patients that they help either – we extend support, counselling and practical help to family members too. Currently we have raised over £800.

 

Past Charities we have supported

CharitySheffield Children’s Hospital

Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is one of only four dedicated children’s hospital trusts in the UK and provides integrated healthcare for children and young people, including community and mental health care as well as acute and specialist services. We raised over £2,000

 

Charity – Action Duchenne

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately 1 in every 3,500 live male births. We raised over £4100. All year staff and colleagues were raising money in a number of different activities.

 

Charity – St Luke’s Hospice

We raised over £3,300 for St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield – an incredible achievement. The money raised helped St Luke’s Hospice care for people whose illnesses are no longer curable, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life during the final stages of their illness.

 

St Wilfrid’s Day Centre for the Homeless, Vulnerable and Socially Excluded

Claremont is also delighted to support St Wilfrid’s Day Centre for the homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded in Sheffield. The Centre has developed through the years and is now one of the largest day centres in the north, offering more services under one roof than any other project. Their new ‘Residential Project’ is now complete on Queens Road in Sheffield. In addition the Centre has educational classes that include literacy, numeracy, art, drama and cooking, and two large allotments where fruit and vegetables are grown to produce a daily three course meal. The skills workshop is famous locally and recently a gift shop has been opened selling goods made by the clients.
