Become a Friend of Les Bourgs Hospice
'Without the Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice raising the money needed to keep the Hospice running would be almost impossible - Thank you.'
The Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice have been an essential fundraising arm for the Hospice since shortly after it opened. They have raised over £4,000,000 to date and the number keeps on rising thanks to their dedication and ideas.
The Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice LBG is run by a small committee of members, who run various events including the Monthly Lottery Club, Rock to Rocque, the Clay Pigeon Shoot and Flag days. The committee have also run three One Million Pound Lotteries over the years and were the brains behind the successful 'Connie the Cow' initiative.
Our good work is only made possible by the support of the general public, for which we are extremely grateful.
If you wish to have a more active part to play in the hospice or fundraising you can get involved by arranging events yourself, or participate as a volunteer in any of the events that we are holding - please check on our events page. We're always very happy to hear from you. Please do remember to let us know if you are organising an event so that we can advise you of any specific issues and lend our support to you if needed.

Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice is a Company Limited by Guarantee Company Number: 56125. Association of Guernsey Charities Number: 307. Guernsey Registry Number: CH47
Become a Company Member
Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice is a company limited by guarantee (LBG), the objects of which are to raise funds for the direct benefit of Les Bourgs Hospice.
What is a company limited by guarantee?
A company limited by guarantee is much like an ordinary private company limited by shares. It is registered at the Guernsey Registry, must file an annual validation each year, and has directors. The major difference is that the company does not have a share capital or any shareholders, but members who control it.
A company limited by guarantee must have members who will promise that, in the event of financial difficulties, they will pay a certain amount, in this case £1. In this way, the liability of members is "limited" to £1.
The main advantage of becoming a company limited by guarantee is that it provides greater protection for the management committee in terms of liability (limited to £1) and increases our accountability to the public.

Company members are entitled to attend and vote at Annual General Meetings (AGMs). Company members can effectively appoint and remove the directors, and will have ultimate control over the company.
