Coronavirus has been difficult for us all. Many of you have had to change your fundraising plans or have missed out on our events. There are lots of different ways that you can support our hospice. Search our ideas below, find something that’s good for you, or take on your own fundraising challenge.
The fundraising team at St Catherine’s would love to hear about your fundraising activity and we’ll do everything we can to help you reach your goal, do please tell us about your fundraising so we can support you.
We really need your support. The pandemic has hit our fundraising hard and we’re predicting a drop of around £1.5 million in income this year. We can only provide care for local people and their families because of wonderful supporters like you who raise money in so many amazing ways. Take a look at some of our ‘Do Your Own Fundraising ideas’ below:
Host a spooky quiz at your local pub or online for a fun-filled evening in return for a donation.
Enjoy an Autumnal stroll, a take on a reindeer run or walk the distance to the north pole in your back garden.
Make, bake and sell pumpkin pies, scrummy seasonal snacks, or have a gingerbread decorating competition.
Take donations for an evening of fireworks, toasted marshmallows around the bonfire and hot chocolate.
Results take minutes, can be printed or downloaded in a format that suits you, and allows you to easily create a poster or leaflet for your very own St. Catherine’s fundraiser!
Design your own posters, flyers and more…
