Poulton Friends of Trinity Hospice is one of several similar Friends Groups on the Fylde Coast, from Fleetwood to Lytham. They each provide vital support in helping Trinity to raise money to keep the doors open and provide support to the community, helping people who are affected by life threatening or life limiting illness on the Fylde Coast.
Trinity receives around £2.5 million a year from the local Primary Care Trust. It costs over £7 million to fund the entire service for one year, so the shortfall must come from the generosity of supporters in the local community.
The Poulton Friends of Trinity Hospice hold a series of events throughout the year.
The dates are below for 2018 and you’ll also find them in the Events Calendar.
- August 4 – Coffee Morning – Bridge Club
- Sept. 15 – Harvest Market – Bridge Club
- Oct. 20 – Coffee Morning & Hospice Christmas Card Sale
- Nov. 24 – Christmas Market – Bridge Club – 10am ‘til 1pm
