FUNDRAISING WITH ST. WILFRID’S HOSPICE IN 2019 Our chosen charity for 2019 is St Wilfrid’s Hospice based in Chichester. St Wilfrid’s have been providing the highest level of palliative care in the local West Sussex community for over 30 years. Their charity covers a community of over 80,000 homes in an area running between Emsworth to the west and Arundel to the east and Midhurst to the North. Their goal is to provide care and support for people with terminal conditions and their families, by providing attentive care in a safe and calm environment whilst supporting families, carers and friends with Bereavement support. St Wilfrid’s vital services are all provided free of charge, thanks to the generous support of fundraisers and donors. Only 16% of the running costs are currently met by the NHS and they rely on the community to fund the remainder, which equates to just over £7.7 million each year. You can find out more information at www.stwh.co.uk.
