There are many charities on our system you can donate your BetterPoints to. We are delighted to have a local charity on board for the recently launched Get Active programme.
ellenor is based in Northfleet, Gravesend. The ellenor hospice charity provides care and supports for families facing terminal illness. They care for people of all ages from newborns to children, adults and the elderly. The majority of ellenor’s care is given in the comfort and security of the patient’s own home. They provide specialist palliative care, respite, day therapy, play and music therapy, physiotherapy and counselling. All of this is free to the patient and their family, but comes at a cost of almost £7m each year. Since ellenor is not part of the NHS, it depends on donations from the local community to fund it's vital work.
You can chose to donate some or all of the BetterPoints you earn for being active to ellenor by heading to the donate page in the app and searching for 'ellenor'.
UPDATE - 1st October 2018
So far 'Get Active in Ebbsfleet' users have donated over £500 worth to ellenor - fantastic work!
