Our donations to St. Catherine's Hospice, Crawley

Kate's Trust has given £59,000 over 4 years to the Community Nursing Service. Today, this St. Catherine's Service supports over 500 patients and their families at home at any one time. In 2003, when Kate died, we knew of no available home nursing in Mid-Sussex. In 2005, St. Catherine's had two community nurses.


KATE’S FAIR 2006 RAISES over £11,000!

The biennial gift and craft fair, Kate’s Fair, was held on 28th October at Great Walstead School, Lindfield, West Sussex and was attended by over 400 people. The event was an outstanding success and in excess of £11,000 was raised on the day, which is a fantastic achievement. This money will go a long way to providing support for cancer sufferers and their families in the local area.
