St Catherine’s Hospice
St Catherine’s is reliant on the community we serve to enable us to provide assistance to those who need us.
Individuals raising funds in the community are hugely valued and each year raise significant funds towards our work. There are many things you can do, large or small to make a difference and we can provide support and advice to make it as simple as possible.
The Friends of St Catherine’s Hospice are groups of dedicated men and women who play an important role in raising funds for the hospice. They run a range of activities from balls and garden parties to coffee mornings and street collections and together raise almost £200,000 each year.
We have 17 groups around our catchment area, who as well as raising vital funds, also raise awareness of our work helping the local population. They are supported by a dedicated member of staff who provides advice, materials and encouragement!
If you are interested in joining or starting a Friends Group please call Gabi Field on 01293 447319 or send an email.
