Ways to fundraise Every year we need to raise £8 million to continue to provide expert end of life care and support to adults, children and families on the Isle of Wight. A third of funding is given by the NHS, but the remaining £5 million is raised by the community - through fundraising and our shops. This is only possible thanks to the generosity of our Island community, which is full of people willing to give up their time to organise fundraising to support Islanders facing death, dying and bereavement.
