We rely on the generosity of people like you, your help is invaluable to us. Without amazing people like you, we couldn’t be there for so many families through their toughest time and support them when a loved one is dealing with a terminal diagnosis.
Whether you’re part of a Community Group, a School or University or you're interested in setting up a Fundraising Group there are a variety of ways to support us. You can also find out more about our upcoming Community Initiatives below.
Bin the Booze!
Don’t miss out on your chance to become a Hospice Hero and take on the ultimate test of willpower. Take a break from the booze, be alcohol free for one month and raise money for your local Hospice.
By not having your 5 BEERS or WINES on a Friday night over the month, you could save A SHOCKING £69, donate this amount and help us to carry on providing our specialist care to our patients.
BUT it doesn't cost a penny to sign up, how do I raise money?!
· Donate your saved beer or wine money – we are sure it will soon add up…
· Ask your friends and family to sponsor you in your challenge, allow them to wind you up on the odd occasion
· Be a designated driver and ask for a donation
· Get creative and hold a mini fundraiser to boost your fundraising, an office sweepstake, a coffee and cake morning
· Raise sponsorship and Set up your Just Giving Page
· Download your sponsorship form
Don’t worry we will send weekly motivation blogs, to keep you on track and oh, don't forget the health benefits of going dry too! We can’t wait to hear from you! Contact Community Fundraiser, Linda Cudmore by email for more information or to sign up.
