Support Us 

Giving is not just about giving a donation, it’s about making a difference.

The Hospice of St Francis is a registered charity, and all our services are provided completely free of charge. However, demand for our care is growing faster than ever and it costs over £6m a year to help our patients live their precious lives well and support their families in their darkest times. 

With less than 20% of our funding coming from the NHS, we rely on donations and legacies from generous people in the community to ensure that The Hospice is there for people whenever and wherever they need our care.

There are so many ways in which you can make a difference from signing up as a regular donor, to leaving a gift in your Will or taking part in a fundraising event.   Local businesses may want to consider joining our Corporate Partner Network or choosing us as your Charity of the Year.   We really do have something for everyone!

We are on hand to support you however you decide to support us so please do get in touch with our Fundraising Team on 01442 869555 or email fundraising@stfrancis.org.uk.
