Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice

Last year Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice provided 135,000 hours of support to patients and their families.

Our care is free, but it costs us £3.8m per year to provide it, which equates to £10,500 per day.

We rely on the tireless fundraising of our supporters to continue to provide the care for which Sue Ryder is so well known. 

Not only do our supporters raise a huge amount of money towards our services, they also help to spread the word about Sue Ryder so more people know about what we do and how we can help.

We urgently need more supporters to organise events and take part in fundraising challenges

Fundraising for Sue Ryder is a great way to meet new people, help to develop your skills and ensure that we can continue to provide care to local families when they need us the most.

Our fundraising team is here to support you every step of the way and help you to achieve your fundraising goals.

You can view or download Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice's 'Your Guide to Fundraising' leaflet for fundraising ideas and inspiration, other peoples' fundraising stories and how your support can help us continue to be there when it matters.
