How we are Funded

We rely heavily on public support to raise around 87% of our £​7.6 million annual running costs.  It is the generosity of people like you that allows us to help all the families who need us. You help us raise the funds we need in many different ways:

Retail & Trading

By donating good quality items to sell in our shops or on eBay, giving us your rags for recycling and buying bargains from our 26 shops, you help us raise over £2 million a year. Find out more about our Retail function…


Every year you donate over £800,000 towards our patient services, much of which we can increase by 25% through Gift Aid. Many of you make donations in memory of people we have cared for: your generosity ensures that other families facing the challenge of life-limiting illness in the future will have the same choice to be cared for at home.

Gifts in Wills

You could leave a lasting legacy by making a gift in your Will to Rennie Grove Hospice Care. Once you have ensured that your loved ones are catered for – would you consider including a behest that would help other families get the support they need when faced with cancer or another life-limiting illness?

Active Events

By taking part in our major events like our Chilterns Cycle ChallengeChilterns 3 Peaks Challenge or HERTS 10K you help to raise over £500,000 every year. Many of you arrange your own personal challenge and your combined sponsorship money topped £110,000 last year.

Fundraising in your Community

Hundreds of you host events on our behalf. These range from golf days to quizzes, to dinner dances to ferret racing! View a whole list of forthcoming events in our What’s On diary. By hosting, attending or helping out at these events in your community, you raise £500,000 each year.

Trusts and Foundations

Your generous support has made a massive difference over the years to the development of our service. Without the backing of Trusts we would have struggled to pilot our dedicated night team – and we certainly couldn’t have rolled it out so successfully without Trust funding. View examples of how Trust funding has helped…

Corporate Support

Hundreds of local businesses have helped us spread the word about our service and raised invaluable funds. Whether you have adopted us as your Charity of the Year, donated gifts in kind such as cable ties for event banners or bottled water for event participants, arranged, sponsored or under-written events for us – you have ensured more of the money we raise can go straight to helping the families who need us. See some of the corporates who support us…

The Pepper Foundation

This charity funds our Pepper Paediatric Team. The Pepper Children’s Nurses couldn’t support the 40 families on their caseload without the ongoing support of The Pepper Foundation, which raises more than £400,000 every year through its fundraising events. Visit the Pepper website.

Hospice Lottery Partnership

This partnership of ​five local hospices brings in around £400,000 for Rennie Grove every year. Regular income of this magnitude is invaluable to us because it helps us to support the patients who need us now and plan with confidence to help those we know will need us in the future. Please keep on playing the Hospice Lottery: you could win thousands of pounds and local patients need your support! Visit the Hospice Lottery Partnership website…
