Volunteer Fundraising Forum

Our Volunteer Fundraising Forum (VFF) consists of groups of volunteers that raise vital funds for Hospice at Home by organising events in their local area. Hospice at Home has nine VFF groups located throughout the 1,500 square miles our Clinical Services Team cover.

The groups are located in: Dalston, Penrith, Wigton, Kirkby Stephen, Melmerby, Keswick, Longtown/Brampton and Appleby.

Each of the groups organise fundraising events within their area ranging from Coffee Mornings, sales of Hospice at Home merchandise to Garden Parties, Music Evenings and much, much more!
