Celebrating Compassion and Caring

One thing the Coronavirus pandemic has shown us all is that now, more than ever, we need to support each other by showing care and compassion to those who need it most – be they family members, friends, neighbours or colleagues.

Queenscourt has care and compassion at the heart of everything we do, and to show our support of those helping others, #teamqueenscourt has launched our Compassionate Communities Campaign, which aims to shine a light on those who are going above and beyond in this time of national crisis. This is consistent with the core message within Queenscourt’s Compassionate Communities Manifesto, about providing care and compassion for those people around us when they need it the most.

The philosophy and practice of Compassionate Communities, where attention is given to the needs and well-being of others, has never been more relevant as we strive to support one another in these unprecedented times.

Queenscourt is therefore inviting members of the wider community to share examples of how they are supporting family members, friends, colleagues and neighbours and clearly demonstrating that Compassionate Communities are thriving, at this most challenging of times. The testimonials and stories we’ve received are featured here, hopefully inspiring others to show kindness, care and compassion in equal measure.

We would also ask you to tell us about others who have shown acts of compassion, for example by ensuring elderly community members have all that they need, by helping deliver essential medicines or food or by making regular telephone calls to check on someone’s wellbeing.

Remembering Gathering

QC Blog Remembering event 2020

Queenscourt would normally hold a bi-annual Remembering Evening to remember those who have died in our care, on the Tuesday evening nearest to Midsummer and Midwinter’s Day.

Unfortunately this year due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we were unable to gather people together to do this, so we offered an alternative option.

Compassionate Communities - Erica Squire

Day 2 of our Compassionate Communities blogs tells the story of Erica Squire who decided to challenge herself by walking 20,000 steps a day during the first 21 days of lockdown to raise money for Queenscourt as a thank-you for the care her late husband Will had received at the hospice.

Over three weeks, Erica walked a total of 218 miles, usually clocking up 22,000 steps a day, and has raised £1,500.

Compassionate Communities - Zara Smith

As the country prepares to move into phase two of the Covid-19 lockdown, here at Queenscourt we want to focus on the ways people have continued to lend their support to the hospice during this very difficult time.

From donating their beer money and giving us their Christmas present to running, walking and cycling miles, people have been extremely generous with their time and money as they prove they are all part of a Compassionate Community.

Over the next two weeks, we will be sharing the stories of just some of those who supported #teamqueenscourt throughout this pandemic.

We are starting today with the story of Zara Smith, 10, who donated one of her Christmas presents after hearing there was a shortage of surgical masks for health workers at Queenscourt.
