The Croudace Festival 5 Proudly supports St Michael’s Hospice as their headline charity
St Michael’s Hospice
St Michael’s Hospice is the headline local charity for the Croudace Festival 5
St. Michael’s Hospice based in Basingstoke, cares for patients throughout North Hampshire who are affected by life-limiting illness. This care is provided both within the Hospice and out in the community in patients homes through their Hospice at Home service. All the Hospice services are geared to helping people live life to the fullest and ensure that their quality of life is the best that it can be. It costs £3.3 million a year to run the Hospice with just 20% coming from the Primary Care Trust, the other £2.7million has to be raised by fundraising and retail activities. St. Michael’s is a registered charity (number 1002856), and all its services are provided completely free of charge.
