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.

Helpers Always Wanted
You’re also more than welcome to help out, and of course donations of money and goods that can be sold are always very welcome.
Poulton Friends would like to thank everyone for their efforts in collecting for stalls and running them, the sterling work of the bucket collectors, and of course everyone who comes along to events to buy things, donate and have a cup of coffee. Your vast jigsaw of characters makes a big bright and friendly picture to the people who support their endeavours
HELP! In order to continue with our excellent stalls at our coffee mornings we are in desperate need of more stock. In particular we need you and your friends to look out any unwanted gifts, including small items suitable for the Tombola, and jewellery.
If you have any to offer, please bring them along to any of the events or ring Jackie on 01253 886632 or Beryl on 885318.
