FFCH Fundraising

Here are 3 ways to help raise funds



1. The first is for those of us who use Amazon to buy items online. Amazon "Smile" will donate, at no cost to you,

0.5% of the net (ex-vat) cost of each of your purchases to your selected charity.

Simply log onto instead of your original Amazon logon.
Your log-on process and details are unchanged. 


When you first log on to Amazon Smile you will be prompted to select the charity you want to support. 
Type: Friends of Fareham Community Hospital, and press search. Then press: Select, to choose FFCH.
Then each time you log onto Amazon Smile and make a purchase you will be helping to raise funds for FFCH.

2. FFCH are now part of the "Fareham Community Lottery". If you feel able to buy lottery tickets then go online to and search for Fareham Hospital.

Scroll down untill you see "Friends of Fareham Community Hospital" and click on "Support us", click on "Buy tickets" and select your numbers, or let the system select numbers for you.

Then click on "Chose payment method" and follow the on-line instructions.

Then each week your ticket(s) will be entered into the draw.  40% of each ticket price goes to FFCH funds.


3. Help to raise funds for tree planting in the inner courtyards at the hospital through our JustGiving page

Welcome to The Friends of Fareham Community Hospital Web Site

Mission Statement


The Friends of Fareham Community Hospital provide support to the Fareham Community Hospital and help to link it with the community which it serves. We provide guidance to users on entering the hospital, operate dementia friendly memory clubs, raise funds for transport, equipment and materials which are outwith the budget of the NHS; encourage local organisations and businesses to support the Hospital where appropriate, and raise awareness of the services available at the hospital.


FFCH, as we call it, was started in June 2010 soon after the Hospital was established. Set up as a charity in September 2011, the Friends’ objectives are:

  • to provide Volunteers for a welcoming and guided stewarding service for patients and to help man certain reception desks
  • to publicise the Hospital’s services and activities throughout the community
  • to encourage local organisations and businesses to support the Hospital where appropriate
  • to bring to the attention of the Hospital staff any concerns or suggestions from the public of which they may become aware, for instance the need for the return of a local centre for medical equipment loans.
