The Edward Gostling Foundation

“The Edward Gostling Foundation is a grant making charity based in Windsor and we partner with several operational charities nationally, providing funding towards projects that will improve the quality of life for people with a disability or long-term illness. Large grants are an exception but every now and again we come across a project that if implemented will bring about transformational change to individuals in need, their families and carers. This year we are delighted to have found just such a project on our own doorstep and are proud to have become a Founding Lifetime Patron of Thames Hospice as they seek to fundraise for the £6M needed to build their new hospice in Bray, serving the communities of Berkshire and South Bucks.

Our grant of £500,000 will fund the build and fit out cost of the Education and Learning Centre. This new centre is a vital part of the Hospice and will provide palliative and end of life care training opportunities for healthcare professionals across the UK helping them to expand their knowledge, competency and proficiency. Both the The Edward Gostling Foundation and Thames Hospice have a vision that all people living with a life limiting illness and their loved ones will be treated with dignity and have access to the best palliative end of life care possible. The new The Edward Gostling Foundation Education Centre will help bring this vision closer to reality.”

The David Brownlow Foundation

"The much-needed expansion of this vital service is clear to see, and we are pleased to help Thames Hospice meet the ongoing care needs of our community."

The Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust

“The Louis Baylis Trust has made regular small grants to Thames Hospice over a number of years and, when we became aware of their plans for relocation and expansion, we invited their chief executive and management team to make a presentation to the Trustees. We were impressed, not only with the new building plan, but also the management resource available to put it into effect.

We followed this up with a visit to the existing hospice in Windsor.All the Trustees, without exception, were impressed with the caring nature of the organisation and the enormous breadth of facilities and support they offer to those who have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses.This extends, not just to the individuals concerned, but also to their families and covers the often extended period of support required during the years that can lead up to final admission.This assistance can be rendered, not only at the hospice itself, but also through visits and care at the patient’s own home.After being made aware of how important physical exercise can be for the hospice’s users the Trustees chose to cover the cost of the new Physiotherapy/Gym unit at the new site at Bray.”

The Stevenson Family's Charitable Trust

“Since 1987 Thames Hospice has provided some of the most successful and well-loved services to the Thames Valley community. Such has been its success that enlarged facilities are now needed. The Trustees are delighted to be able to support the Hospice at this important stage of its development and would encourage others to do likewise.”

The Wolfson Foundation

"We share Thames Hospice’s commitment to increased access to services in an environment designed to serve both patients and their families."

The Shanly Foundation

“We’re delighted that, in our 50th year, we were able to give our largest donation ever given by the Shanly Foundation to Thames Hospice. We have been in discussions with the hospice team for a considerable time regarding their plans for the new hospice and we are thrilled that the monies will be used to pay for an essential Day Therapy Suite.”

Lord Ranger CBE and Lady Ranger, in memory of Mrs Harbans Kaur

"The donation is dedicated to Lord Ranger's mother, Mrs Harbans Kaur, she was the epitome of courage who believed in never giving up."

Jason & Penelope Bevan

"Thames Hospice is part of our family and the vital work it does could not be closer to our hearts. The new hospice and the Paul Bevan Centre within can benefit patients from a seamless transition to get the support, advice, care and understanding when they need it."

St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation

"We look forward to seeing the new facilities at Thames Hospice, knowing the impact it will have on the children and families who rely on Thames Hospice for so much in their lives."
