St Cuthbert's Hospice

Located on Claypath, and stocks an array of donated goods to appeal to the city’s student population, tourists visiting throughout the year, and to the local community who live in the city, or travel in to the city to shop. Clothing, footwear, jewellery and accessories, along with home ware, china, books, with a selection of children’s toys/games.

St Cuthbert’s Hospice, based at Merryoaks, Neville’s Cross, is a registered charity. It was recently classified as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission. Whilst some of the running costs are met by the NHS through local Commissioning Groups, a further £1.3million pounds per year has to be raised by the hospice to run the services, with much of the money coming from local events and fundraising activities. St Cuthbert’s Hospice opened in 1988 and provides care for people with life limiting conditions, as well as giving support to their families. The Day Hospice looks after up to fifteen patients four days a week, offering physiotherapy, complementary therapies, advice on symptom control and social activities.

The In Patient Unit, which opened in 2006 following a public appeal, allows the Hospice to offer 24 hour care for people living in Durham, Chester le Street and the surrounding areas.


Colourama 2017 : 17th June 2017

What is Colourama?

This year Colourama is back, with even more fun for the family. Our non-competitive walk or run will see participants make their way around our 5k course, facing a variety or colourful challenges, including family friendly obstacles, and a rainbow of powdered paint! The paint used is a fine powder that is completely safe and non-toxic.

Who can take part?

Anyone! The light cross-country route makes it suitable for all ages and abilities. Although family friendly, some obstacles may not be suitable for little hands and feet, however all obstacles will have the option to scoot around them as well as over them.
