We all share a common goal at St Helena: to be here every step of the way for everyone who needs us, helping life go on in the face of dying, death and bereavement. The help and generosity of our supporters is vital, without them we wouldn’t be here.
Members of our community support us in many different ways and in particular we’re incredibly grateful to have a strong network of local fundraising support groups across North Essex. These groups are run by individuals who use their passion, time and creativity to organise events which raise vital funds and awareness about our care and support.
Some examples of quick and easy fundraising events that you could help organise include:
We are always interested in starting new groups either in different areas or in the same areas with different interests. If you are interested in joining or starting a group please use our contact details listed below.

If you are a member of a North Essex community group such as a Rotary Club, Women’s Institute, Lions, Brownies or Scouts we would love to have your group get involved and support us. There are many ways in which you can do so whether it be choosing us as your Charity of the Year or supporting us by fundraising through a one off event.
We have a Fundraising Pack that is a go-to for all your fundraising needs – it can give you lots of ideas and tips on what you could do, and where to get started. It also gives advice on making sure anything you do is safe and legal, ensuring you get the most satisfaction from your fundraising.
