Every year we face the huge challenge of ensuring enough support is generated from our community to help meet the running costs of the Hospice. 

Our care is free of charge to patients and their families but not free to provide. As a charity we rely heavily on the generosity of the public to raise just over £5.8 million each year to run St Leonard's Hospice. This equates to £663 for every hour of the day. Although St Leonard's does receive some public funding, the majority of the running costs have to be raised from the local community through donations, legacies, fundraising events and support for our 14 shops. 

Before you begin, please read our best practice guidelines for fundraising. 

Support St Leonard's in the following ways:
