Everyone with a life limiting illness deserves access to the best possible care and to live their final days with dignity. Every year, St Peter's Hospice makes a difference to the lives of thousands of patients and their families during the most difficult of times. We could not do the work that we do without the incredible generosity of our supporters and participants. Every pound you raise or donate by taking in The Rugby March makes a difference to the lives of the many people we care for every year.

There are so many ways to raise vital funds for St Peter's Hospice. You can collect sponsorship, hold an event like a quiz or even collect up your loose change. Whatever you decide to do, fundraising for the Hospice will make taking part in The Rugby March feel even more special. 

Online Fundraising

Setting up an online giving page is the easiest way to start gathering sponsorship and spreading the message about the challenge you're taking on. Create your page and personalise it with photos, updates and the story of what you're doing and why. You can also make team pages so all your friends' fundraising is together in one place. 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 the challenge.

Or, download a sponsorship form to pass around your local group, school, street or workplace too. 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! 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.

Hold a Fundraiser

Put on a quiz night for friends and family, in your local pub or even online on Zoom or Facebook Live.  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 a bingo night instead?

Organise a Six Nations sweepstake and get guesses on what the score will be for a game. Ask for a £2 donation per guess, and whoever is closest wins a prize.

Hold a fundraiser at work like a cake sale, dress down day or a fancy dress Friday. Get the office involved, and ask your employer if they can match fund as well.

Make an empty jam jar your Rugby March pot and add your loose change at home, the cost of a coffee every week, or put it in the office by the biscuit jar. You'll be surprised at how quickly it adds up!

Technical update

Due to global IT issues we are currently unable to access our electronic patient record system,  this issue is also affecting GP surgeries and district nurses. We are continuing to operate our services, using our business continuity plans.  As always, patient care and safety remain our absolute priority. We are actively monitoring and managing the situation and will provide updates here when we have them.
