Friends of Mercy is an independent charitable trust supporting Mercy Hospice. It was founded by a group of passionate, like-minded volunteers who have each been personally touched by the hospice.
These incredible friends have a wealth of fundraising experience, a wide range of business skills and networking abilities, and a desire to raise funds to directly assist the unique, dignified and compassionate patient care which makes Mercy Hospice so very special to so many people.
“The board, staff and especially our patients are very grateful to Friends of Mercy for volunteering their time and raising funds to support the care of Mercy Hospice patients. Thank you, Friends of Mercy for your kind and warm-hearted generosity”
Dr Arthur Morris, Mercy Hospice Board Chair
The Houspice Project
As mentioned in our latest June 2021 newsletter, Friends of Mercy is working closely with Penny Homes on the Houspice Project. They had an ingenious idea to build and sell a new three-bedroom house, and donate the profit from the sale to Mercy Hospice as much-needed funding for patient care.
The Friends of Mercy team are working to reduce the cost price of this house even further by reaching out to various businesses to donate goods to the house. Each donated item will reduce the final cost of the house and increase the return to Mercy Hospice. Read more about this inspirational project here
