More donations are being sent to a hospice as the funding crisis continues.

St Luke’s Hospice, Kenton Road, have received a £10,000 donation from the family-owned property company, Jaspar Foundation, to help support the hospice during a ‘funding crisis’.

The hospice unfortunately had to make cuts in September due to the lack of funding received.

Only a third of funding for the hospice comes from the NHS, with the hospice needing to raise over £3million each year to keep its services running.

Riddhi Pankhania, the director of the Jaspar Foundation based in Stanmore, said: “St Luke’s is well known locally for the fantastic work it does providing the best possible end-of0life care for hundreds of people in Harrow and Brent every year.

“It relies on the support of the local community for most of its funding and we are delighted to help the hospice through a difficult time as it has faced increasing demand for its services following the closure of other hospice units locally.”

Kiran Grover, the corporate partnerships manager at St Luke’s, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with the support from the Jaspar Foundation. This donation truly comes at a critical time for the Hospice and will help us continue to give free end of life care to people in Harrow and Brent.

“We look forward to an on-going partnership with the Jaspar Foundation and we will be naming one of our in-patient rooms in their honour. We are extremely grateful for all the help we receive from local businesses and the wider community as a whole.”

The hospice previously called for more funding from the government to avoid any further cuts.
