We couldn't do it without our incredible community.

Welcome to our Community Hub – where we celebrate the connections we forge beyond our hospice walls.

Just 25% of the funding we require to run our service comes from the NHS. We rely on the generosity of our local community to provide the funds to support over 300 seriously-ill children and their families across London.

Let’s chat about how your local community can make a difference today.

Helping you to deliver your fundraising ideas.

We work closely with nurseries, schools, universities, groups and associations to develop fundraising events.

Why not talk to us about your upcoming event and we can supply you with resources and give you all the information you need to make your event a success.

Bake sales

Tasty treats and raising money for a good cause, what more could you want!

Fetes

Laughter, games and shared moments of joy.

Fun runs

Lace-up your running trainers for a 5k to raise money for Richard House.

Raffles

Win exciting prizes from our generous raffles.

These are just some of the more common fundraising events we run but we’ve compiled an A-Z list of fundraising events which you can see here.

We’re always open to new suggestions when it comes to our community events and we’d love to hear from you. 

If you’d like to run your own community event and become a #RichardHouseHero, please get in touch.

We love JustGiving.

Whether you’re holding your own event, taking on a personal challenge or getting involved in one of our own organised events – JustGiving is the best platform to tell your story and collect sponsorship money!

There are other platforms you can use, like GoFundMe and Crowdfunder which also create online fundraising platforms- but we recommend JustGiving to our fundraisers

Massive thank you to our tin and bucket collectors.

We have a dedicated community and fundraising team who will frequently take our collections tins and buckets to the streets of London and beyond.

It’s such a worthwhile exercise, helping to bring joy and happiness to our children and families.

If you have an event coming up where you could take donations or would be willing to volunteer as a collector, we’d love to hear from you!
