Patron and property guru Phil Spencer has been on location at a house in Sevenoaks in support of our ‘unique’ charity.

The TV star and charity Patron was invited to the launch of ellenor’s new Philanthropy Circle, generously hosted by ambassador Candy Kitsz and her husband Jan.

Now in its 30th year, ellenor is the only charity in Kent to provide hospice care to seriously ill people of all ages across north and west Kent.

The majority of our care is provided in the comfort of a patient’s own home. More than 150 of ellenor’s patients are babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Guests enjoyed canapés at the exclusive event on Wednesday 20 May, while Phil shared anecdotes about his work with fellow presenter Kirstie Allsopp and his support of a charity “which is so unique.”

Phil said: “As patron of this unique charity, providing hospice care for families facing terminal illness, I was delighted to be able to attend and speak about my life, stories of television and why I am so passionate about this cause.

As a father myself I can only imagine how difficult it must be if your child is very sick so a charity that can provide vital end of life, cancer and respite care in the home is incredible – I am so happy to help.

“I am looking forward also to attending the next big event for the charity – The Orange Ball in London on November 6.”

As a charity, not part of the NHS, ellenor is reliant on the generosity of the local community to be able to provide care to families facing terminal illness.
