  • Thank you to the fabulous RockIt Choirs from Tenterden and Hawkhurst for raising more than £6,000 for Pilgrims Hospices at their record-breaking Beatlemania concert in April 2019, contributing to their amazing fundraising total of more than £30,000 over the ten years they've been singing together.
  • With the help of family and supporters, Charlie Prescott raised an amazing £1,745.50 by holding his third music concert in aid of Pilgrims Hospices! We're so grateful for Charlie's continued support of local hospice care.
  • Thank you to Waitrose in Hythe for welcoming members of our amazing volunteer team to hold a bucket collection in-store. The generosity of customers and staff raised an incredible £460 towards hospice care. This could pay for a patient’s meals for seven weeks.
  • For me, the most enjoyable thing about volunteering as Raffles the bear is seeing the smiles on the childrens’ and adults’ faces when they see Raffles at events or in supermarkets. Just hearing them laugh is so rewarding and makes me keep doing what I’m doing.
  • Thank you to the children and staff at My Nursey in Margate who chose to support their local hospice in Thanet. They raised £24 by wearing Christmas jumpers to nursery in exchange for a donation to Pilgrims Hospices.
  • Over the Christmas period, Barretts of Canterbury kindly host a special night at the pantomime for staff, friends and family. All proceeds from the evening are generously donated to three local charities; Pilgrims Hospices is always delighted to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the event.
  • Thank you to staff at local butchers Rooks in Ramsgate who have raised an amazing £1,415.32 for Pilgrims Hospices since 2016. This fantastic fundraising will make such a big difference and help our charity to continue providing vital, compassionate care to families across east Kent.
  • Pilgrims nurses met 9-year-old Shania Roberts who donated £480.27 at our Canterbury hospice in memory of her Great-Grandad Fred. Shania saved her pocket money for over a year and helped with chores around the house to help us be there for the next family who need our care.
