Each year Millbrook selects one charity to support for twelve months and last year the nominated organisation was Demelza. The money was raised through a number of events supported by staff members from both Crowborough and Southfleet. Amongst the highlights of the campaign were the successful Charity Festive Evenings and the Three Peaks Challenge completed by Managing Director, Tammy Woodhouse.

Matthew Upton, Manager of Millbrook in Southfleet, said:

"Demelza Hospice Care for Children cares for life-limited children and their families, offering respite breaks, end of life care and bereavement support at its hospices in Kent and South East London. It also offers a hospice at home service for children in East Sussex and parts of South West Kent. "
