Martin House Friends' Groups

Our Friends' groups represent Martin House in the community and are a vital help when it comes to raising awareness of our hospice and the work that we do.

From collections, to setting up small community events in aid of Martin House, Friends' groups ensure that Martin House is seen across our region, encouraging fundraising across their communities. 

They undertake all sorts of activities on our behalf and these may include:

- Organising bucket collections

- Running coffee mornings, raffles and tombolas

- Attending events on behalf of and together with the Martin House
  Fundraising Team

- Leading Supermarket Charity Partnerships

- Leading community events like table-top sales or craft fairs

- Selling our Christmas Cards

Our friends put the FUN into fundraising and not only are they our friends, they are friends with each other and really enjoy the fundraising activities that they choose to undertake.
