East Cheshire Hospice Savings Account

East Cheshire Hospice Savings Account

Open a Leek United East Cheshire Hospice Savings Account and you'll be supporting a charity that puts its patients, carers and families at the centre of everything it does.

We are proud to have teamed up with East Cheshire Hospice, a local hospice that prioritises each patient's needs and wishes, aiming to improve overall quality of life with practical assistance, emotion and spiritual support. At a time when family is so important, they also support carers and relatives with social and family services, counselling, complementary therapies and much more.

All of their services are provided free of charge to those who need them. However, only 17% of their funding is from the government, with the remainder donated by the communities they serve: Buxton, Congleton, High Legh, High Peak, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton, Wilmslow and everywhere in between.
