Penguins powering hospice care

The great Waddle of Worcester is being brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice. At the end of the trail, each big penguin and one chick will be auctioned to raise money for the charity’s free care to patients, loved ones and bereaved people in Worcestershire.

St Richard’s Hospice cares for adults with a serious progressive illness, improving their quality of life from diagnosis, during treatment to their last days and supporting those closest to them.

Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,100 patients, family members and bereaved people in Worcestershire.

It costs £9.72m to run the hospice (21/22 audited accounts), which includes patient care and all the necessary support services.

St Richard’s is an independent charity and relies on donations and gifts in Wills for the majority of its income with the remainder funded by the NHS.

The charity has delivered two previous, hugely popular Wild in Art trails; Worcester Stands Tall, in summer 2018, and Worcester’s Big Parade, in summer 2021, which combined raised more than £700,000 for the care of patients and families.
