St Peter’s Hospice is the Bristol area’s only adult Hospice. We care for local patients with life-limiting illnesses and their family members. Our care is provided free of charge at the point of service, however, it costs over £20,000 a day to provide all the incredible services that we do, in people’s homes, at our Hospice in Brentry, and across the greater Bristol community. We rely on our retails shops, gifts in wills and local people to fundraise for us. Running for your Hospice is a great way to support! For more information, visit our website.

We recognise that it takes more than medicine to meet the needs of cancer patients and their loved ones. For over 40 years we have provided people in Bristol with free practical, emotional and social support they need to improve their quality of life and to manage the fear and uncertainty that a cancer diagnosis may bring. People with cancer are feeling more isolated and afraid than ever before but with your help we can be there for them. By running and fundraising for us, you can ensure our services keep going. Together we can change life with cancer. For good.
