Be a Friend
At the end of 2011 the Friends and their army of helpers had completed over 30 years of fund raising and had donated in excess of £1,700,000 to the Hospice.
The Friends of Willen Hospice was formed in 1980 and has grown from a small group of dedicated people to a registered charity.
What do Friends do?
The Friends of Willen Hospice are a band of volunteers, from all walks of life, who undertake to raise enough money each year to cover all the costs of a bed at the Hospice. Each year the Friends Committee and individual members and helpers organise a variety of fund raising events throughout the Hospice catchment area .
Friends raise funds
Fundraising activities include:
- annual raffles
- bucket collections
