Heart of Kent Hospice relies on the generous support of our local community to be able to offer outstanding care to patients and their loved ones when they need us the most. Some of our donors choose to make a regular donation to the Hospice as a Friend at Heart. Whether monthly, quarterly, six monthly or annually these regular donations provide the Hospice with a reliable source of income, allowing us to plan our expenditure for the months and years ahead.


When you become a Friend at Heart you will receive regular updates on the work of the Hospice and the difference your donation is making.  We will also offer you the opportunity, when it is safe to do so, to come into the Hospice and hear first-hand how we are looking into new and exciting innovations to help our patients and their families to live well.  Your kind donation will enable us to continue to care for over 900 patients every month.


Here’s how your regular could help:

£11.60 will ensure that one of our inpatients has the nutritious, freshly made meals they need for a day, to maintain their health and wellbeing.

£22 will ensure that our nurses can provide compassion and reassurance in a patient’s final moment.

£30 will ensure that we can make phone calls to support patients and their families who are coping with a terminal illness at home and are facing additional loneliness and isolation.

£50 will enable us to support a family member through the loss of their loved one, with a one-to-one session with a Hospice counsellor.


Making a donation takes little effort, but it makes me feel part of something much larger. Becoming a Friend at Heart and making a regular donation just followed on from wife’s passion for the Hospice Movement and it is a wonderful way for me to celebrate her life.John Alaway, Friend at Heart.
