North West Hospice provide palliative care with compassion for those living with life-limiting illness in Sligo, Leitrim, South Donegal and West Cavan, a population of approximately 110,000 people. It costs in over €2 million to run our service annually. We get a grant of €1 million from the HSE. We must fundraise in excess of €1 million every year to maintain our current level of service.
