Community Fundraising

Set up your own event and become a community fundraiser!

Holding your own fundraising event in aid of St. Michael’s Hospice is a great way to have fun with friends and family in memory of someone who’s no longer with you.

Organising an event can seem very daunting – trust us, we know! So to get you started, we have put together a Community Fundraising pack to guide you through the process. Our fundraising team are also on hand to help and are always happy to lend their experience and knowledge to ensure that your event is a success. For many people, they are the first point of contact to help with any ideas and questions.

If you are thinking about putting on an event, please contact Daisy Mitchell, Community Events Co-ordinator, on 01256 848853 or at daisy.mitchell@stmichaelshospice.org.uk who can give you any support you need.  You can also download a copy of our Fundraising Pack.

Community campaigns – a fun way to fundraise!

Can we come and talk to you?

Are you looking for interesting, informative speakers to come along to one of your meetings or assemblies?  Would you like to know more about what a hospice actually is and the services it provides to patients? Would you like to know the truth behind the word ‘hospice’, help dispel fearful thoughts and show that  ‘hospice’ can be a word of hope?

Allow us to educate and raise awareness of St. Michael’s Hospice; let us show you the real side to a hospice and how we make a difference. Many people aren’t aware of the wide range of services that St. Michael’s Hospice provides, and this is something we would love to change.

We will, of course, adapt our presentation to suit your audience, so whether your group comprises of adults or school children, we will make it an enjoyable and interesting talk to suit everyone.  If there is anything that you would specifically like us to talk about, such as fundraising ideas, we would be happy to do so.

To arrange a fundraising talk, please contact Daisy Mitchell, on 01256 848853 or email daisy.mitchell@stmichaelshospice.org.uk

Celebrating an occasion and want that really special present?

If you’re constantly being asked what you’d like for your birthday or wedding anniversary, and just can’t think of anything you need or want, why not ask your friends and family to donate to St. Michael’s Hospice instead of buying you a gift?

We have personalised envelopes available that you can either send out with your invitations or have at your party. If your family and friends fill out their full name and address with their donation, we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated at no extra cost to them, through the Gift Aid scheme.

Please contact us on 01256 848853 or email Helena Maskell, Senior Fundraising Manager, helena.maskell@stmichaelshospice.org.uk, and let us know how many envelopes you would like.

Get Sponsored

Why not do something you've always wanted to do and get sponsored for doing it! Take a look at our Sponsorship Tips, and if you register with Virgin Money Giving, you could raise even more online!

Have A Penny Box In Your Home

This is a simple and effective way to raise funds, as every penny counts! Your loose change box can become a home “fine” box, a swear box or is perfect to store small change when friends make a call from your phone!
