Welcome to The Duchess of Kent Hospice

We need your help

It costs £14,000 a day to keep our hospice going. We need your help. Whether it’s running, singing, baking or talking, there’s a way for you to get involved, and we will support you in anything you decide to do. Last year we provided 95,000 hours of care to people across Berkshire, but we can help many more with the help of people like you. Every penny raised helps us. Please give us a hand, and get involved!
