From their inception, one of the key aims of the Marmalade Awards has always been to raise money for Hospice work around the globe. This is a cause that is very dear to Jane’s heart, and we are proud to have raised almost £250,000 for hospice care in the past 14 years. Our main beneficiary is Hospice At Home Carlisle & North Lakeland, but entrants can choose to donate their entry money to their local hospice if they wish. The FULL entrance fee for every homemade entry always goes directly to hospice charities.
Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland (Hospice at Home) provides high quality care and support for adults who have palliative and end of life care needs, and also for their families and carers. Hospice at Home supports and cares for patients and carers, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, partners and friends.
Hospice at Home believe that Hospice Care is not just about buildings or services; it is a philosophy that places the patient, family and carers at the heart of care. It can be provided in hospitals, hospices and the community which may include the patient’s own home, residential care or anywhere the patient considers home.
