The Midnight Walk Your Way

Get Fundraising

There are so many ways that you can raise vital funds for the Hospice, even from your living rooms and back gardens, including collecting sponsorship, holding a virtual event, or collecting up some spare cash to fundraise as part of The Midnight Walk Your Way challenge.

During the past few months, our normal fundraising activities have been on hold and our shops have been closed. We’ve had a huge hit to our funding, and so every pound raised means more now than ever. This means we need your donations, fundraising and sponsorship to support our patients and make a difference for families across greater Bristol.

 

Get Sponsored!

The easiest way to start fundraising is to set up an online giving page like JustGiving. You can make your page here, it’s quick to set up and you can personalise it with photos, updates and the story of what you’re doing and why. Plus all the money kindly donated to your page comes directly to the Hospice without you having to do anything or chase anyone for cash - perfect!

Share your page on social media to spread the word to all your friends and family about your challenge.

You can also download a sponsorship form to take to your local group, school, street or workplace. You might even tell your sponsors that if you raise a certain amount, you’ll complete the walk in fancy dress...

Don’t forget to gift aid it! Ask your sponsors to fill in their home address and tick the gift aid box on the sponsorship form and on your online giving page. If we can claim gift aid, we get an extra 25%! Just think - if you raise £100 and everyone ticked the box then you’ve actually raised £125 for us.

 

The Midnight Walk

Hold a Virtual Fundraiser

If you or a friend has a talent, how about live streaming it in return for donations? From putting on a yoga session to singing, leading a cooking session to teaching viewers how to juggle - whatever your talent, get your virtual community involved.

Hold a virtual quiz night for friends and family. Go live on Facebook or invite everyone to join you on an online platform like Skype or Zoom and ask for a donation to your JustGiving page to take part. There are loads of quiz questions available to download online or you can put your own together. If you’re not a fan of a quiz, how about holding a virtual bingo night instead?

Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you can’t have a fancy dress Friday! Get your colleagues to dress up or wear a funky hat in return for a donation - make sure they send a photo of their outfit. If it’s a day with a team Skype meeting scheduled in, that’s even better.

Collect up Some Cash

Make an empty jam jar your Midnight Walk pot and add your loose change after each shop, or add in to it the amount that you would usually spend on petrol if you're no longer commuting. You’ll be surprised at how quickly it adds up!

 

How to Pay in Your Sponsorship Money

There are lots of ways that you can get your wonderful sponsorship money into us. If you’ve fundraised through an online giving page like JustGiving then it will come to us automatically without you having to do anything at all! You can also pay it straight to us through our website and let us know that it’s your sponsorship money, or you can also send a cheque to the Long Ashton office.

Thank you for fundraising for St Peter’s Hospice. The money you raise is vital to support patients and families get the care, advice, support and guidance that they need in the most difficult of times. Your support will help local people from Keynsham to Portishead, Thornbury to Fishponds with medical needs, as well as with bereavement and counselling support.
