Our corporate partners
There are lots of ways you and your organisation can support us. You can make a regular or one-off donation, you can hold a fundraising event, or you can be exceedingly team-spirited and do some corporate volunteering. Or why not go the whole hog and make us your charity of the year so that you can do an exciting mixture of all of them? Here are a few of the absolutely brilliant companies who have chosen to help us out in a range of ways.

“I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that I was so impressed with the work you do and the facilities you provide, your ethos of helping people live every moment to the full in comfort and dignity certainly struck a chord. I appreciate hospice and respite care can be very demanding and heart-breaking all at the same time but I left Princess Alice Hospice today, feeling uplifted that there is a place like this that exists to help those on their journey, it was very humbling.”
