We've been making a difference for 130 years and we need your help to be there for another 130 years.

Over hundred years ago, it was the generosity of the local community that made what became Royal Trinity Hospice possible.

In what was a pioneering version of modern-day crowdfunding, our founder Colonel William Hoare, appealed for donations in The Times on Christmas Day, 1891.

He provided £1,000 of the £2,000 needed and raised the remainder through the generosity of the local community to provide a home “for the man who is neither curable nor incurable but simply dying”.

The need to provide care to the dying identified by Colonel Hoare in 1891, is even greater today. Our larger and ageing population is living longer with more specialist care needs. It means more demand on us to help people make the very best of every moment they have.

We anticipate that by 2030, demand for Trinity’s services will have increased by 44%.

Your support will help us meet the growing demand from our community in the years ahead.

Help us be here for the next 130 years.
