Support Us

Thank you for choosing to support Willen Hospice

You continue to amaze us with all the ways you support us.  You’ve volunteered your time, shopped, cycled, run marathons, walked, auctioned, baked – and you create challenges that connect you and your own community.

By continuing to support us through an activity or by making a donation, you are helping us to be there for our patients and their families through the most difficult time of their lives. Your help directly funds specialist care for our end of life patients. Thank you for all you are doing to support us!

Here are few more ways to get involved. You’ll be joining the thousands of people who do incredible things to make sure we can make a difference.

How your money could help

Did you know? Our care is completely free of charge, but to continue doing this we need to raise £4.7 million every year. That’s an astounding £9 a minute. That’s why we rely on the support and generosity of you, our local community to help us.
