Throughout the year we host a number of community events, and run a range of campaigns to fundraise for local hospice care. Whether you're looking to remember a loved one, enjoy a sociable day out with friends and family or simply support Pilgrims Hospices, there's something for everyone.
Make a Will Month
Make a Will Month celebrates 10 years during April and May 2022.
Solicitor firms from our local community are kindly donating their time and expertise to write wills in exchange for a donation to Pilgrims Hospices. Participating solicitors can be found across east Kent, including Ashford, Canterbury and Thanet.
All money raised from Make a Will Month will be donated to Pilgrims Hospices to help people facing a terminal diagnosis, and their families, to live well in every moment. It is suggested that donations of £150 are kindly made for a straightforward single will, or £250 for an uncomplicated double will.
Simply call your chosen solicitor, book your appointment and help us be there for next family who need us.
Pilgrims Garden Festival
Join us at the stunning Mount Ephraim Estate on Sunday 24 July 2022.
Pilgrims Hospices is pleased to welcome you to a perfect family day out this summer, set in the stunning grounds of Mount Ephraim Gardens, Faversham. We will be celebrating some of your favourite local food and drink producers, plant sellers and independent traders as well as having floristry demonstrations for the whole family to be inspired by, traditional games, prizes to be won and delicious sweet and savoury treats at our vintage tea party.
Each ticket to the Pilgrims Garden Festival includes entry to Mount Ephraim Gardens, where you can explore 10 acres of enchanting Edwardian gardens and terraces filled with fragrant roses which will lead you to a small lake and woodland area.
Dedicate a sunflower to your loved one at our summer remembrance.
Remember a loved one by dedicating a beautiful sunflower memory marker to plant in either our hospice gardens, or your own garden. Sunflower Memories offers a lovely opportunity to dedicate a sunflower to someone you love. We'll write your chosen dedication on a striking sunflower memory marker and plant it in the grounds of your chosen hospice throughout July, or post it to you to cherish at home.
Sunflower Memories will be returning to our hospice gardens on Saturday 30th July.
Pilgrims Summer Fair
Enjoy a fun day out for the whole family this August.
Come and enjoy a fun day out for the whole family at our much-loved summer fair in the beautiful village of Mersham in the lovely surroundings of The Farriers Arms. With a wide range of traditional stalls to visit, there will be something for everyone. Whether you want to take a chance on one of our tombolas's or just play a few games, there are lots of prizes to be won, food to be eaten and fun to be had.
Or, you can bring your own chairs and blankets and simply sit back, relax and be tempted with an afternoon tea, yummy homemade cakes and a selection of savouries. Maybe have a browse around some of the popular stalls including a plant stall, local produce and crafts or our very own Pilgrim's market place with a selection of many new goods.
