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.
The Sixteen Concert at Glyndebourne – 10 December 2017 (Harry Christophers & Dame Felicity Lott featured)
East Sussex High Sheriff, Maureen Chowen, hosted the return to Glyndebourne of Harry Christophers and The Sixteen, who delivered a festive feast of pitch-perfect harmony in a Concert for Christmas in aid of Friends of Sussex Hospices. The Sixteen, one of the most celebrated choral ensembles in the world who have become known as “The Voice of Classic FM”, were joined at the end of the concert by Glyndebourne Youth Opera and the audience for a rousing finale which included the Sussex Carol.
FSH Chair, Kathy Gore, said “Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Glyndebourne, The Spencer Wills Trust, Peter James, Lord and Lady Lloyd of Berwick, Maureen & Michael Chowen and many anonymous donors the money raised will go to the twelve hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex.
A bucket collection on the door made a massive £2,600 making the event on track to make around £45,000!

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!
