Major gifts

St Helena Hospice believes everyone living with an incurable illness has the right to live and die with choice, compassion and dignity. Families deserve to be cared for and anyone coping with loss should be supported through their grief.

Our vision is to create a community where everyone knows that at the end of their life they will be cared for and die where they choose to be; where loved ones have the opportunity to make the most of life together, surrounded by a community that cares and supports one another.

By donating a major gift you have the power to make an incredible impact on your community and the end of life care and bereavement support available for local people.

There are many different projects and services that may be of interest to support. Please contact Rosalyn Leclercq at to discuss these opportunities further.

Trusts and grants

Grants from charitable trusts and foundations are an important source of income for St Helena Hospice and make such a difference.

By funding both new projects and countless hours of our core services, grants enable us to continue providing high quality care to local people facing incurable illness and bereavement across north east Essex.

We are hugely grateful for every grant we receive and the impact that support has on our ability to continue to provide our services to our patients and families when they need us most.

“It’s just been life changing and I am so grateful that I am able to enjoy what I can for as long as I can.”
