David at the hospice

How you're helping this Christmas

Every year our hospice staff work around the clock to look after everyone who needs our care - whether that's in people's homes, or in the hospice. When David was admitted to the hospice on Christmas Eve, the entire family were able to gather round his bed and be together. Something that, during his time in hospital, wouldn't have been possible.

“David was transferred to the hospice for palliative care on Christmas Eve, and as soon as we arrived, everyone was so kind." - Danielle, David's wife.

Only 23% of our funding coming from government, which is why every penny you raise in sponsorship for events like Jingle Bell Drop is vital. Thank you.

The Brighton i360 full height is is 531 ft tall! To abseil safely you’ll be just shy of the full height, so for your abseil you’ll be suspended above the city 450ft high (that’s 64 Christmas trees high!)

Travel up the Brighton i360, you could be up to 1.5 hours – plenty of time to take in the amazing views!

The expert Brighton i360 team attach you to a harness and you’ll drop down on a safety line all the way to the seafront. Your exhilarating decent will take approximately 5 minutes and you’ll be guided by experts in the pod and on the ground.

You’ll be met at the bottom by your friends and family, with volunteers cheering you on.
