Get Involved

All the care and support the Hospice provides is free of charge yet we only receive around one third of our funding from the NHS. We wouldn't exist, and couldn't offer the support and services we do, without the generosity of local people who help us raise over £4 million every year so we can continue to provide specialist care to local people.

You can support our work in many different ways:

  • make a one-off gift or set up a regular payment via direct debit or standing order
  • make a donation of clothing, bric-a-brac, furniture or electrical item at one of the Hospice shops in Greenwich or Bexley boroughs
  • shop at any one of the Hospice's 17 charity shops
  • come along to one of the Hospice's many local events
  • organise your own event
  • take a collection box for your home or workplace
  • encourage your club, pub or community group to support the Hospice
  • ask your employer to join the Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice business partnership
  • take part in a challenge event in aid of the Hospice
  • sign up for the Hospice lottery or buy a single ticket for the chance to win great cash prizes
  • make a gift to the Hospice in your Will
  • set up a Hospice tribute fund in memory of a loved one
  • volunteer your time and skills to help in a suitable area of the charity
  • Gift Aid it - for every £1 donated to us in money or goods we can claim 25p back from HMRC.
