Why not organise your own event or activity to raise vital funds for the hospice?

This might involve a sponsored activity or organising a fundraising event. Fundraising of this type could be something that you organise with family, at work, school or as part of a group you belong to. You might already have something in mind, or why not consider some of our ideas?

Sponsored Activity

You can get sponsored to do almost anything to raise money for the hospice!  Please contact fundraising on 01785 270808 if you are planning to undertake a sponsored activity, we can give you a free T Shirt and help you to promote what you are doing.  Some ideas might include:

  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Headshave
  • Zumba
  • Trek
  • Silence
  • Read 

Remember to Gift Aid it!

Gift aid can significantly increase the value of your sponsorship money at no extra cost to those sponsoring you.

Set up a JustGiving page

Justgiving helps you to raise sponsorship money easily by emailing colleagues and family with a simple web link and stops the problems of chasing up money after the event.
