Our dream just became a little more real

Thanks to the local community, over the past few months we have made incredible progress towards our target to build a new Hospice in Bosham.

Earlier this month, The F G Woodger Trust confirmed a further grant, bringing their overall donation to the DREAMBUILDING appeal to an amazing one million pounds. Soon after, everyone at the Hospice welcomed news that the Trustees of The H. B. Allen Charitable Trust had chosen to award a grant of £500,000 to the appeal,  one of the Trust’s final grants as it winds up this year.

 Chief Executive, Alison Moorey, said: “We are incredibly grateful to the Trustees of both The F G Woodger Trust and The H. B. Allen Charitable Trust for their overwhelming generosity. These grants have made a significant contribution to our appeal and brought our remaining fundraising target to just under £1 million.”

Chair of Trustees, Angela Wormald, added: “The support of these two Charitable Trusts comes at a crucial time for us, as we have just four months to go to meet our target. I would like to thank them, on behalf of our Trustees, for endorsing our appeal so generously.”

We launched our fundraising appeal - DREAMBUILDING – in 2017. We now have just four months to raise the final £954,000. Everyone at St Wilfrid's  is calling upon individuals and local businesses to get behind their local Hospice and help create this dream!
