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.
Hospices Hymnathon 2017 (featured)
A very special event took place over the bank holiday weekend, 29th April to 1st May, when David Bathurst sang the entire BBC Songs of Praise hymnbook – 400 hymns – FROM MEMORY – to raise funds for Sussex Hospices.
The total raised was an amazing £1317.87!
Over three days friends and supporters flocked to St George’s Church, Eastergate to bring cakes, help with teas and join the singing to support David – creating a joyous atmosphere of warmth and praise. Kathy Gore OBE DL (chair of FSH) said ‘The singing and that of the many who came to support David was quite beautiful and there were some very special moments. It was great to be able to tell people about FSH and I have a feeling the ripples from this weekend will radiate for quite some time. Our heartfelt thanks go to David whose memory never failed him and he completed the 400 hymns with his rich tenor voice still intact’. Special thanks must go to FSH committee member Katharine Minchin who supported David throughout the three days.
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!
