A message from Farleigh

For over 35 years, Farleigh Hospice has been providing free care and support for people with life-limiting illnesses in mid Essex – Please take part in the 20th anniversary of the Race4 Business and support us by raising money for a new HOP Vehicle.

Farleigh Hospice Outreach Project (HOP) is a vehicle which travels through the local community providing information about the hospice and our services. Specialist staff answer questions or concerns, give qualified advice and signpost people to our services so they receive the best support possible. In 2016 we had to retire our HOP vehicle, due to mechanical defects and, as a result, there has been a sharp decline in the information available to the local community- particularly in remote areas of mid Essex.

By taking part, and raising sponsorship for Birketts' Race4Business 2018, you'll help us get our HOP back on the road, allowing us to get back into the community and provide specialist support where it's needed most.

Help us reach our target of £20k by downloading your sponsorship form and setting up a Just Giving page today!
