The St Helena Supporters' Network is a vibrant community of supporters who share a commitment to the mission of St Helena Hospice.
Over the next ten years, we aim to double the number of local people we support; but we can only achieve this with the support of our local community. By making regular monthly donations, you will contribute to our financial stability, especially during these challenging economic times. Your support enables us to continue offering the exceptional level of care and services for local people facing death and bereavement, now and for future generations.

We will invite you to regular meetings where you can learn about the latest advancements in healthcare, technology, fundraising, and marketing that are driving our success.

Yes. We can claim Gift Aid on all donations and receive a further 25% of your donation back from the government, meaning that your donation goes further. If you pay tax at 40% or a 45% then you can also claim additional relief on your donation in your self assessment. For example, as a 40% tax payer: if you were to donate £500 per month, St Helena could claim Gift Aid up to £125, and you could also claim a further £125 tax relief on your self assessment. Therefore, you would be giving £375 and St Helena would be receiving £625.

Our vision for this network is to foster the growth of philanthropy at St Helena Hospice. To achieve this, we highly value the involvement of our dedicated supporters, who will have frequent opportunities to invite their friends and family as guests to witness our work and potentially join us in our cause. The network actively seeks avenues to expand fundraising efforts and takes on the important responsibility of spreading awareness about our services and the tremendous effort required to sustain them.
There are no expectations placed on anyone to bring guests or participate in any specific activities. Our aim is to provide a range of engagement choices so that everyone feels comfortable in how they contribute. Whether you choose to join and simply observe or actively engage by hosting events, your presence and support are equally appreciated.
When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
