New sessions offering information and support for people with neurological conditions will run throughout June and July at Weston Hospicecare.

The sessions are aimed at people with conditions like motor neurone disease, multiple system atrophy and Huntingdon’s disease, as well as their carers.

Sessions will be hosted at the hospice’s Wellbeing Centre in Thornbury Road, Uphill, and will take place from 1.45-4pm on Monday afternoons – 3 and 17 June and 1 and 15 July.

They will feature a wealth of information and practical advice from expert speakers from organisations like the Huntingdon’s Disease Association, Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Multiple System Atrophy Trust, as well as the hospice itself.

That will include not only hospice doctors, but also counsellors and family support services, as well as information on physiotherapy and complementary therapies.  

Guests from Macmillan, Citizens Advice and Wards Solicitors will also be attended some sessions.

Topics covered will include things like first aid, planning ahead and wellbeing, as well as serving as an introduction to local support services.

Practical advice will include tips on things like relaxation techniques, psychological wellbeing, financial support and power of attorney.

There will be plenty of opportunity for visitors to ask questions, and to take a tour of the hospice’s Jackson-Barstow House too if they wish.

Spaces on these sessions are limited, so it is important to book a place. To do so, call Weston Hospicecare on 01934 423900, or email IPU Sister Claire Fisher via

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
