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.
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.
