- Pendleside Patrons 2021
Our patron scheme is a collection of individuals, companies and groups who want to make a difference on their doorstep by helping to fund our vital care for local people.
Our Patrons' donations help the hospice:
- Care for people in Burnley & Pendle with incurable and life-limiting illnesses
- Maintain high-quality, individualised care that focusses on compassion, dignity and respect
- Provide support for families, both throughout the illness and after a patient has died.

“I would like to appeal to other businesses to take Glendinning’s lead and consider becoming a Patron of Pendleside.

Simply Classic - Donation of £500 from Mother’s Day Boxes
& BRONZE PATRON support
Pendleside Hospice is delighted to have been donated £500 by local bistro Simply Classic. Simply Classic’s Chris Burt said “We have been really busy during the Covid 19 pandemic with our catering services and making boxes of delicious gourmet food which we sold as takeaways. These were very popular and we thought it would be a good way to support Pendleside if we asked our customers to donate £5 when they ordered one of our Gourmet Mother’s Day food boxes”. Chris added “We know the hospice needs funds so we made the decision to separately donate £500 to their Patron scheme too”
Christina Cope, Head of Corporate Fundraising at Pendleside, said “On behalf of Pendleside I would like to say a big thank you to Simply Classic and their customers for the £500 raised for us, Thanks also to the partners at Simply Classic for joining our patron scheme as Bronze members. Simply Classic have supported us previously and continue to do so and we are very grateful for their donations again”
