Stevenage Football Club is delighted to announce local charity Garden House Hospice Care as Official Charity Partner for the 2023/24 season…
The partnership will see the Club and Garden House Hospice Care work together to increase the awareness of the Letchworth-based charity, highlight its fantastic work in the local community and help raise vital funds to enable it to continue providing its free specialist palliative care for patients, families and carers facing life-limiting illnesses across North Hertfordshire, Stevenage and surrounding towns and villages.
With thanks to GRILLA for donating their front-of-shirt sponsorship, the Garden House Hospice Care logo will sit front and centre of Stevenage’s new third strip for our 2023/24 campaign.
Produced by Macron, the yellow shirt features a diagonal blue pattern on the sleeves, with a blue trim on the sleeves and collar.
Stevenage FC CEO Mike Pink said, “I’m looking forward to us working closely with the team at the hospice to help drive awareness and donations throughout the season and provide some much-needed support. I want to say a huge thank you to GRILLA for giving up their space on the front of our new third shirt and helping us to provide Garden House Hospice with this opportunity”.
Director of Income Generation at Garden House Hospice Care, Carla Pilsworth said, “Working in partnership with Stevenage Football Club gives us an opportunity much wider than fundraising.
"Whilst the income generated from the partnership will make an incredible difference to the services we can provide at the Hospice, the awareness it will build throughout Stevenage and beyond is unmeasurable. We are looking forward to seeing what this year will bring”.

Garden House Hospice Care provides a wide range of services for patients, their carers, and families facing a life-limiting illness. Free specialist palliative care is provided to over 900 adults a year living with advanced cancer, motor neurone disease or other life-limiting conditions in our community of 230,000 people in North Hertfordshire, Stevenage and surrounding towns and villages of Central Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
£6.5 million in total income needs to be raised yearly to run the charity’s services - only a third of this is received from the NHS. The hospice relies on the support of charitable donations, including fundraising, to help run its services.
