Join a Friends Group


Each of our Friends Groups are different, from size to the events they organise, but all of them help us in any way they can. The groups can be as formal or informal as the people involved wish them to be, they are covered by our insurance and supported by our Fundraising Team.

Friends Groups raise vital funds for us with events such as quiz nights, Coffee mornings, barbeques, raffles and street collections. They also help raise awareness of Hospice in the Weald by publicising our work in their town or village.

If you would like to join one of our existing Friends Groups or start your own in your area, no previous fundraising experience is required, just an enthusiasm for the Hospice.
