Chris’s story

This September, challenge your colleagues to take part in the Willen Hospice Sports Day and see if you can take home the trophy!


FRIDAY 13 SEPTEMBER

Ten Epic Challenges

One Great Cause

One Winner


Form a team of four or more and go head to head with other local companies in a series of fun events to become our Sports Day champions. 

We’re recreating the fun of school sports day… for grown-ups. Take part in 10 classic fun events including Egg and Spoon Race, Tug of War, Sack Race and 3-Legged Race followed by drinks and awards in the clubhouse.


It will be a great teambuilding event as you work together to tackle the different events, and we’ll be encouraging you to get dressed up with prizes for the best costumes.


It’s free to enter your team, but there will be a fundraising challenge which will form part of your team score so we’ll be encouraging you to raise as much as you can between you. If you need help, we can lend you collecting buckets, posters or anything else you need.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Willen Hospice

Willen Hospice is an independent charity which provides specialist care to people with life limiting illnesses from the age of 18 years upwards in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Our vision is to always be there to care and our services are free to those we look after, but to continue to offer that care Willen Hospice needs to raise around £4.7million every year - that's £9 every minute - from the local community, so we rely on your generosity and support.

The Hospice is based at a quiet lakeside area close to central Milton Keynes and our dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social care professionals and other health care staff, provide round the clock care to our patients and provide ongoing support for their families.

Willen Hospice offers an inpatient unit for patients to stay at the Hospice, a dedicated community team of Clinical Nurse Specialists and Hospice at Home staff, a Patient & Family Services team offering bereavement support and a drop-in Wellbeing Centre giving those not staying at the Hospice access to our services. 

The annual running cost of the Hospice is around £5.9 million - we're very grateful to have 22% of these costs met by the NHS. The remaining 78% needs to be raised from the local community and without the dedication and support of people just like you, we couldn't provide the care we do.

Registered Charity Number: 270194.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
