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.
Past Charities we have supported
Charity – Sheffield 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. During 2018 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. During 2016 we raised £4116.52
All year staff and colleagues were raising money in a number of different activities. Events included a Climb Up Snowdon, Rounders Tournament, ‘Taste of Yorkshire’ Evening and a pre-loved clothing sale.
Charity – St Luke’s Hospice
During 2015 the staff at Claremont raised £3,330 for St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield – an incredible achievement. Events included a sponsored weight loss, cake sale, half marathon walk, football tournament and a fashion show.
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 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.
