Who we are

We have cared for patients for over 40 years, giving compassionate, personal end of life care at our In-Patient Unit and in people’s homes. We help our patients to live well every day, and die with dignity. This exceptional care is given free of charge.

Our Hospice is set alongside Willen Lake with its beautiful views, making it a tranquil place for patients and their loved ones to make the most of their time left together.

Willen Hospice is run by local people for local people. Countless people in the community are passionate about the charity, and it’s this thriving community that helps us drive fundraising and donations, freeing us up to focus on easing the pain of those near the end of their lives.

We have 170 staff and over 600 volunteers who help us carry out our vital work, but we simply cannot do it without the ongoing support of our local community.

 

What we do

We provide care for people from the age of 18 years upwards, who have been referred by a GP or other medical professionals.

Willen Hospice’s care touches thousands of local people every year. We give comfort, ease pain and reduce anxiety for patients and their loved ones. Every pound given makes a difference – as it enables us to do more for more people across Milton Keynes when and where they need us. We receive less than a quarter of our funding from the NHS, which means the rest is donated or fundraised for by amazing local people. Which is why your support is so important and so appreciated – from everyone we help, thank you.

 

Why we need you

22% of our costs were met by NHS funding, leaving a £4.5m gap to fill to ensure we could deliver our charitable services. This was made possible thanks to the generosity of all of our supporters. However, that leaves 78% of our income that we need to raise ourselves. A staggering £11.23 every minute.

 

1. SELECT A CHARITY

A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.

2. BOOK YOUR SKYDIVE

You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.

3. START FUNDRAISING

OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!
