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.
FSH says goodbye to two amazing volunteers (featured)
Friday 24 February marked a sad day for FSH when two of its most valued volunteers said goodbye in order to move home to different districts in Oxfordshire. At a drinks party held at Framfield Grange in their honour, Kathy Gore OBE DL (Chair of FSH) spoke to a group of around 40 friends and fellow committee members to describe the pivotal role they had each played in the history of the charity. Sue Renshaw was responsible for the beginning of the charity by organising the first ever FSH event, a Christmas Gift Fair, in 1995 which is still continued to this day. Sir Patrick Cable-Alexander has been the very successful Chairman of FSH’s West Sussex Committee and a Trustee since 2013, opening up many new and important contacts and steering the committee through it’s early years. Flowers and individual books of memories were presented to Sue and Patrick and the evening closed with many warm wishes.

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!
