Your support is so important
We rely heavily on public support to raise around 91% of our £8.4 million annual running costs. So it’s the generosity of people like you that allows us to help all the families who need us. And you help us raise the funds we need in many different ways.
How will my donation help Rennie Grove?
Your donation helps families in Bucks and Herts facing life-limiting and terminal illness. In short, it helps local patients with cancer and other life-limiting conditions get the support they need to live well. From coping strategies for symptoms like fatigue, to palliative end-of-life care at home. See our purpose and values for an overview of how your donation will help Rennie Grove.
