Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice - for West Surrey and NE Hampshire

Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice
Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, based in Farnham, Surrey, is the only adult hospice serving West Surrey and North East Hampshire. We care for seriously ill people and their families both at the Hospice and out in our local community. Our philosophy is about living, not dying, and understanding that the modern use of the word ‘hospice’ is about a specialist system of care across many professions in the community.
The NHS covers less than 12% of our costs, which is under half the national average for hospices. This means we have to fundraise 88p in every pound the Hospice needs to spend. For that reason, we rely heavily on the support and generosity of the local community. All our services are free of charge, but we need to fundraise over £15,000 a day to offer such an exceptional standard of clinical care and support so income from legacies, sales from our thirteen shops, fundraising events, general donations and corporate support are all essential.
Please look at our website or contact our Fundraising team for more information.
Thank you

We are currently in the process in seeking funding to replace all of the mattresses on our In Patient Unit. These are very specialist mattresses that provide huge benefit to our patients and staff. The cost of the entire project is in excess of £60,000 with each individual mattress costing £3400. If we were able to secure funding to help with this project we would be extremely grateful. For more information about how we would benefit from your support please call 01252 729446
