St Leonard's Hospice, York
Signs Express (York) has worked closely with St Leonard’s Hospice for several years supplying a wide range of signage, graphics, exhibition materials, displays and vehicle graphics for the hospice and its retail outlets.
St Leonard’s Hospice is an independent charity providing specialist palliative care and support for the people of York and surrounding areas. The fabulous work of the charity means that patients can enjoy the best possible quality of life and their care extends to support families and carers. Signs Express (York) has been privileged to work with the Hospice over the years and has worked with them on all aspects of their visual identity.
Some of the work which the team have been involved with include;
• Retail signage • Vehicle wraps • PVC banners • Exhibition Materials • Pull Up Banners • Leaflet & Display Boards • Window Graphics • Wayfinding Signage • External Signage • Point of Sale Products • Vehicle Graphics
The charity relies heavily on the generosity of the public to help raise in excess of £5 million that it costs each year to run St Leonard’s Hospice. This equates to £574 for every hour of every day. Although St Leonard’s does get some public funding most of the running costs have to be raised from donations and fundraising by the local community; businesses, groups and individuals. Part of this income is generated via the hospice’s retail outlets, of which there are now thirteen.
Ian Dawson of Signs Express (York) said, ‘It is always a pleasure to work with the hospice – as a charity they rely heavily on their visual identity as fundraising is such an integral part of what they do. We are all touched and admire the fabulous work that they do and so to be involved, even in our small way, is a true pleasure. We have worked on a wide range of projects for the Hospice and no two projects are ever quite the same. They are a great team to work with."
Theresa Barrett, Communications Manager at St Leonard’s Hospice said “Signs Express York have helped tremendously in bring our refreshed logo to life in our local community. Our signage, vehicle livery and marketing materials are stunning thanks to their expertise and professionalism. They are really lovely to work with too and we are always grateful for their help and support”.
