Mark your momentous occasion by raising funds for your local hospice.
The pandemic has meant many of our fundraising events and activities can’t go ahead this year, so we’re facing a severe shortfall in our funding. But you can help ensure that we are able to continue our vital work.
If lockdown has scuppered your celebratory plans, why not ask for donations in lieu of gifts?
Maybe you’re getting married, celebrating your graduation, coming up to retirement, or marking a special birthday. Whatever the reason, you can make your day extra special by supporting St Catherine’s Hospice.
It’s super easy to get started, set up a JustGiving page to make it easy for people to donate, or use Facebook’s Fundraisers tool to raise money for us.
Michelle Fitzgerald-Lee had planned to do a parkrun and have a party to mark her 40th birthday, but wasn’t able to due to the pandemic. Instead, Michelle set up a Facebook Fundraiser and raised £315 for the hospice – thank you Michelle!
Clicking the Fundraisers option in the left menu of her Facebook News Feed (you may need to click “See More”) Michelle found that it was easy to set up a fundraiser to ask her friends to donate to St. Catherine’s for her birthday.
Watch her quick video where she explains how she set it up:
Looking for that truly meaningful gift? If you were thinking about buying a present, perhaps consider donating those funds to a good cause instead. Or make your birthday, graduation, wedding or other big occasion that little bit more special – by asking your friends and family to give a gift to St Catherine’s Hospice on your behalf.
You could make a donation to mark your special day yourself, or set up a fundraiser and ask your mates to give a donation to St Catherine's Hospice instead of a gift.
No gifts please — only donations. Ask the guests at your big party to give you a special gift by supporting your local hospice.
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!
