‘Quid for Compton’ charity campaign returns

Wolverhampton’s Compton Care has this week launched its annual appeal encouraging local people to donate just one pound each to help fund extraordinary care.

Quid for Compton runs from 5-11 October and throughout the week, the charity is encouraging people to donate £1 to enable it to continue to provide extraordinary care for patients living with complex and incurable conditions and their families. Sally Woods, Community Fundraiser said:

“This year’s campaign could not be easier for you to take part in. We are simply asking our supporters to donate £1 - that’s it! No events, no sponsored silences, no bakes sales, just donate £1 or a sum of your choice and help Compton to continue to provide care and support to people living with incurable conditions and their families, as well as bereaved adults and children. 

“Like many charities, we have seen a significant drop in ourincome due to Covid-19, however our incredible teams stepped up and extended our services to support our NHS colleagues and will continue to do so, if needed. 

“We are now asking our community to join our local shops and restaurants in supporting Quid for Compton week from 5-11th October to ‘Give a little. Help a lot.’” 

Quid for Compton was first launched in December 2017 and since then has raised around £26,727 which would fund the equivalent of 108 visits from a Compton Nurse Specialist delivering care and support to a patient in their own home.

It couldn’t be easier to take part, supporters can make a text donation by texting ‘Q4C’ plus their desired amount to 70085. 

The charity wants its supporters to know their pounds really do make a difference. For example, £11 could provide a 30-minute telephone befriending call to individuals who are experiencing isolation and loneliness. One supporter said: 

“Without Compton I don’t know how we would have got though this pandemic. We had to have the end of life conversation on the phone. The nurse made what was always going to be a very difficult conversation that little bit easier. 

“My husband Alan doesn’t need intensive support just yet, but Compton reassured us that we don’t have to wait until he is more poorly before they can help. They have offered me the hand of friendship and support throughout this pandemic. I will never ever forget what they have done for me.”
