Demelza Hospice Care for Children supports hundreds of life-limited children and their families across South East London, East Sussex, and Kent.

Demelza has two hospices, one in Eltham, Greenwich and one in Sittingbourne, Kent as well as a community nursing team based in East Sussex.

The charity, which has been running since 1998, offers respite, symptom control, end-of-life care and bereavement support for families with children who are either life limited or suffer from conditions which mean they need a lot of specialist care. 

Facilities include a multi-sensory room, soft play area, a hydrotherapy pool, and the Inclusion Zone for young adults.



The Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance charity exists to help relieve sick or injured people in South East England and surrounding areas by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service and an Air Ambulance Service for the benefit of the community.

How have we raised money?

Fundraising work that has taken place at Ashford International Hotel to support these two worthy charities includes:

  • Making Valentine's cards, Mothers' Day gifts and Easter Egg hampers to sell to guests and leisure club members
  • Our Restaurant Manager ran the Richmond Half Marathon
  • Hosted a Dotty Afternoon Tea in conjunction with KMFM, the local radio station.
  • Collection tins in the leisure club for both charities and locker coins for sale

So far in 2013, Ashford have raised over £1,000 in total from the above actitivities.

In addition to this, Ashford International Hotel have adopted Tugar, the Siberian tiger who lives at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.
