Northfleet Charity ellenor Hospice Care comes on board

Kerri French - 23 February 2018

We are delighted to have a local charity on board for the launch of the Get Active programme on 21st March.

ellenor is based in Northfleet, Gravesend. The ellenor hospice charity provides care and supports for families facing terminal illness.  They care for people of all ages from newborns to children, adults and the elderly. The majority of ellenor’s care is given in the comfort and security of the patient’s own home. They provide specialist palliative care, respite, day therapy, play and music therapy, physiotherapy and counselling. All of this is free to the patient and their family, but comes at a cost of almost £7m each year. Since ellenor is not part of the NHS, it depends on donations from the local community to fund it's vital work.

You can chose to donate some or all of the BetterPoints you earn for being active to ellenor by visiting their donation page here.

We want to bring you charities you care about (both locally and nationally) so do get in touch if there is a charity you support that we do not have listed via
