There are many different ways that individuals can help The
Friends of Eastbourne Hospital raise essential funds.

Installing new equipment in the wards, or providing staff with items they need on the day-to-day would not be possible without our funding and the donations we receive. Whether you are making a donation yourself, giving a gift in someone’s memory, or simply using products and services which in turn will donate a percentage of the proceeds to the Friends, here are some of the ways in which you can help.

Ways to Donate

If you would like to play a part in helping the DGH and its staff via the work of the Friends, you can make a donation by:

  • Calling the Friends Office to make a payment on 01323 749503
  • Donating via our online donations page
  • Making a bank transfer to: Barclays Bank Plc, Sort code 20-22-67, for the account of Friends of Eastbourne Hospital, account number 10039667
  • Donating online at Charities Aid Foundation where you can make a one-off donation or set up a regular payment
  • Writing a cheque payable to ‘Friends of Eastbourne Hospital’ and sending it to:
    Friends Office Eastbourne DGH Kings Drive EASTBOURNE BN21 2UD

Alternatively, you can download and print our Standing Order Form to make a regular payment

Where applicable, please do either complete the Gift Aid section of the document you are filling out, or let the Friends Office know if you are a taxpayer, as we can consequently reclaim 25p in every £1 of your donation at no cost to you.

Please contact the Friends’ office on 01323 749503 or email us for more information.

Donations in Lieu of Funeral Flowers

Donations in lieu of flowers are a valuable source of income.

The loss of someone you love is a very difficult time for you and your family. Many families choose to provide the flowers at the funeral, but ask friends to make a charitable donation as a lasting tribute. We would like to thank all those families who name the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital to benefit from financial donations in lieu of funeral flowers, in memory of their loved ones.

You can request that donations given in memory of your loved one are used to benefit a specific ward or department in the hospital, but in the absence of a specific request, all money donated to the Friends is used to provide amenities, equipment and services for the patients, staff and visitors of Eastbourne DGH.

Your funeral director may be happy to collect and administer donations in lieu on your behalf, ensuring that they are sent according to your wishes.

To make donations directly to the Friends, please contact the Friends Office on 01323 749503.
