Give a virtual charity gift!

Why not treat your family and friends to something a little different this year? Buy them a virtual gift from our online shop and the money you spend will support our patients, their families and carers.

How it works:

  1. Choose the gift you would like to be made on behalf of your recipient.
  2. Pay for the gift knowing that your donation will be used to support patients at St Wilfrid’s and their families.
  3. Write a personal message in the card we send you which will contain information about the gift. You can add your own personal message and pass it on to the recipient. Your card will be sent to the Billing Address you leave in the payment section below.
  4. You both feel great, knowing that you have helped the hospice in this way.

Thank you for your support!

What could your money do?

£10 could pay for a Christmas dinner for one of our patients on the Inpatient Unit, ensuring that they share in the festivities.

£30 could go towards the cost of paying for an inpatient's meals for one day

£40 could pay to keep a Hospice at Home car on the road for a day, so that staff can visit patients across our catchment area of Eastbourne, Uckfield, Heathfield, Hailsham and Seaford and the rural areas in between.

£100 could pay towards the range of therapeutic sessions (currently operating online) the hospice runs including:

  • Fatigue and breathlessness – providing patients with strategies to assist with everyday activities
