We are delighted to announce that Friends of Farleigh Hospice have reached their target of raising £250,000!

Friends of Farleigh have been a key part of the hospice movement in Chelmsford since its first beginnings in the early 1980s. Since then Chair of the group Julie Renvoise, along with its many members over the years, have held countless lunches and social evenings, made hundreds of jars of jam and chutney and baked thousands of cakes and scones! They have always been a welcome presence at Farleigh’s challenge events, providing much needed sustenance for weary participants.

Without the support of people like the Friends of Farleigh, the hospice would not have developed into the organisation it now is and which is so valued and respected by the people of mid Essex.
