About Willen Hospice

Willen Hospice is an independent charity which provides specialist care to people with life limiting illnesses from the age of 18 years upwards in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Our vision is to always be there to care and our services are free to those we look after, but to continue to offer that care Willen Hospice needs to raise around £4.7million every year - that's £9 every minute - from the local community, so we rely on your generosity and support.

The Hospice is based at a quiet lakeside area close to central Milton Keynes and our dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social care professionals and other health care staff, provide round the clock care to our patients and provide ongoing support for their families.

Willen Hospice offers an inpatient unit for patients to stay at the Hospice, a dedicated community team of Clinical Nurse Specialists and Hospice at Home staff, a Patient & Family Services team offering bereavement support and a drop-in Wellbeing Centre giving those not staying at the Hospice access to our services. 

The annual running cost of the Hospice is around £5.9 million - we're very grateful to have 22% of these costs met by the NHS. The remaining 78% needs to be raised from the local community and without the dedication and support of people just like you, we couldn't provide the care we do.

Milton Keynes to Paris 2019

A lot of you will know that around 2 1/2 years ago I was smoking 20+ a day, significantly heavier than I am now and not what you would call "Active".
Now I have been a non smoker for over 2 years, I am 15KG lighter and back playing regular hockey again after 15 years.
A big part of getting me to where I am today, alongside a better diet, has been cycling. In the past 2 years I have done a number of charity rides but have chosen to "self fund" them, the reason for this is that I have been looking for that 1 "Special" ride that combines not just the day, distance and locations but also the charity I want to raise money for, and now I have found the perfect combination. Willen Hospice is a great cause that supports individuals and families in my local area through some of the hardest days of their lives.
Between Wednesday 26th
and Sunday 29th
June 2019 I will be cycling to Paris as part of a team of 40 riders.
The 225 mile ride will go via Dieppe along L’avenue Verte through a variety of countryside with up to 68 miles of cycling per day.
I am taking on this cycle ride to raise money for Willen Hospice which is a wonderful charity and a cause which is close to my heart. This will be a difficult challenge for me so I would appreciate it if you could sponsor me and give whatever you can afford as 100% of the money raised on this page will go to the charity.
Thank you for your support.

Borneo Trek

Having enjoyed the trek in Vietnam so much, it seemed only natural to part of the team trekking in Borneo. This time I am paying the costs of the trip so that all amounts raised go directly to Willen Hospice as a way for me to give something back in appreciation for everything they did for my mum during her stays at the hospice.
The trek will take place in the state of Sabah, Borneo, and will take us through a land of incredible natural beauty and diversity.
Mum died aged 55 from Skin Cancer, she was an amazing lady, full of energy and love.
Mum faced the end of her life with grace and immense courage. She chose not to depart from her home as she wanted only the happy memories left there. Instead, she chose Willen hospice. She stayed
there a
couple of times near the end of her life, however, during her final stay, the family spent almost a week "camped out" so we would all be at
her side at the end. Sadly, on 30th January 2007, she passed away, with her husband and 6 children by her side. The staff at the
hospice were very accommodating during this time; they allowed us to take over one of the relative's rooms, provided a camp bed and allowed us to use the facilities there.
So i would greatly appreciate your donation so that the hospice can continue to support families in the future,
the same way we were supported and in
honour of our truly fabulous mum and all our other loved ones who are with us only in spirit, but whose memories we treasure forever.

Our wonderful partners

Our wonderful partners - who support us with cash and services - make it possible for us to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to our charities, including Gift Aid. Of course, we would be unable to do so without them.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
