Our Supporters

We are grateful for all of the support we receive from our local community. There are many ways local people and businesses can support The Friends of Conquest Hospital. For local people, support might be in the way of becoming a member of the Friends, making a donation or volunteering with us. For businesses, support might take the shape of hosting one of our collection tins, sponsoring one of our events or arranging volunteer days for their staff.

Donations & Grants

We’ve recently been awarded a generous grant from the Chalk Cliff Trust in order to re-introduce a programme of live music at the Conquest Hospital for the benefit of patients and staff. We’re incredibly grateful for their support.

Our longstanding Trustee, Dr Richard Wray has kindly made a very generous donation for the re-introduction of live music at the hospital. For many years, Richard has led the way with the music programme at the Conquest. Unfortunately the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic meant it came to a halt, so we’re delighted that his fantastic donation enables us to ensure the return of live music for the benefit of patients and staff.

Local charitable organisation, the Hastings Lions, have shown their support for the re-introduction of the music programme at the hospital with a generous grant towards the project. We are incredibly grateful for their support.

Collection Tin Hosts

A huge thank you to the following businesses, who kindly host our collection tins. In a world where the use of cash is reducing, we’re even more grateful to these businesses for supporting our charity. In the last year, these companies have raised an incredible £3910.26 between them!
