Ashgate Hospice is an independent registered charity that provides paliative care and support not just at the Hospice but throughout our community.

It costs Ashgate Hospice £4.5million each and every year to provide these valuable services.  A massive £2.7million of this has to be raised purely by funraising activities and voluntary contributions.

There are a number of ways in which you can help;



Hold a dinner party:  Come Dine at Mine!

With staying in being the new going out, look no further than your dining room table for an entertaining night of great company and homemade food.

Invite your friends over for a party or a sit down meal with you and kindly ask them to make a donation to Ashgate Hospice.  You can be as creative or as formal as you wish. From a curry evening to fancy dress murder mysteries, the possibilities are endless!  Please contact Ashgate Hospice for your free Come Dine at Mine Fundraising pack that can help you with:
