Welcome to the Friends of Sussex Hospices
Friends of Sussex Hospices is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers. It raises funds, through a variety of activities, to support the running costs of the twelve hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex. FSH works alongside our hospices, promoting awareness of the invaluable services provided by them to our community.
Presentation of the QAVS (featured)
Tuesday 4th October was a landmark in the history of the charity. We were honoured to be presented with the Queens Award for Voluntary Service by the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, Mr Peter Field, representing HM the Queen.
The award recognizes and applauds the many achievements in both fund and awareness raising of the charity in the 21 years since its inception in 1995. Kathy Gore OBE DL (Chair of FSH) pointed out in her acceptance speech that the award represented the commitment, passion and sheer hard work of hundreds of volunteers, all of whom have played their part in achieving this very special recognition of the valuable work of FSH. The presentation ceremony took place at The Keep, home of the East Sussex Records Office at Moulsecomb (Brighton).
The presentation was followed by the Annual General Meeting after which Professor David Oliver, an acknowledged international expert on Motor Neurone Disease and neurological palliative care, gave a fascinating talk entitled “Palliative care and neurological disease – how do we improve care”.
The Big Get Together is an opportunity to Get Together with your friends or family and have some fun – and one of the easiest ways to raise money for FSH and local hospice care. Friends of Sussex Hospices has joined up with other hospices across the South East to invite you to be part of The Big Get Together in October; all you have to do is ask your guests to make a donation that will go straight towards providing hospice care in your local community. You could invite the family around for a barbeque; hold a cocktails and canapés evening; watch films and eat pizza in your PJs; dance like divas or simply raise the roof with a good old-fashioned gossip; you can be as sophisticated or silly as you like!
