Saint Francis Hospice is delighted to be named one of the seven charity partners chosen by West Ham United Football Club. Each of the Club's chosen charities reaches out to a different scope of people, communities or beneficiaries.

 

Our Chief Executive Pam Court said: "As the only adult hospice chosen, we're excited to use this partnership to promote just what we can offer to our local communities. It's an amazing opportunity to show people that we do so much more than people realise.


"Many of our patients, their families, and our supporters are West Ham fans so it's wonderful to have this backing from our largest local football club."


West Ham United Foundation's position as the Club's official charity allows the Foundation to access a great range of communities across the borough. The West Ham United Foundation works to provide opportunities, create pathways and change lives across East London, Essex and beyond.


Joe Lyons, West Ham United Foundation CEO, said:"At West Ham we are committed raising awareness of local organisations making a difference to our community. This, together with the strong West Ham connection at Saint Francis Hospice, makes our new charity partnership the perfect fit."

 

As part of the partnerships, each charity partner receives one game each season dedicated to them, providing an opportunity to raise awareness with the West Ham community. Ours took place on Monday 4th February when West Ham played Liverpool at the London Stadium.


Fundraiser, and life-long West Ham fan Andy Furneaux and our wonderful Dr Anisa Chowdhury spoke passionately about our Hospice, as did our Patron and West Ham legend Sir Trevor Brooking and we're excited to be able to share it with you!



With Sir Trevor Brooking as a huge supporter and Patron of our charity, and as a West Ham legend, we're looking forward to working together to help raise awareness and much-needed funds for our charity through this partnership.
