We need your support

Willen Hospice has a very special place in the hearts of people in the local area. At the toughest time of their lives, we do everything we can so people feel relief from pain and families can enjoy the precious moments they have left together. In the midst of the exhaustion, the pain and the grief, we are there. Our highly skilled professional team provide the best quality and heartfelt care for terminally ill people, and support for their families. We kindly ask each dasher to raise £50 to help support are care.

Our care is completely free of charge, but to continue doing this we need to raise £4.7 million every year; that’s £9 a minute. We rely on the support and generosity of our community to help us
