Supporting us when banks go cheque free


You probably already know that from the end of May almost all banks will no longer be accepting cheques. If you support our work through a donation, you can continue doing so – just a little differently – and your bank will help you do it.

Nurse Maude has always relied heavily on your generosity so we can provide palliative care and support in the Nurse Maude Hospice free of charge to our patients and their families so, at the most vulnerable and stressful time of their lives, they don’t have to worry about how they are going to pay for the care they need. For their sake, we hope you choose to continue to donate through…

  • Internet banking
  • Using the DONATE button on our website
  • Setting up a regular donation by Automatic Payment. Our bank account number is 02 0865 0057217 03

You can call us on 375 4200 and ask for accounts payable or email and we will help you find the best way to support us.

On behalf of all those we nurse and support at the end of their life, our thanks for everything you do.
