Donation of goods
To continue our commitment to deliver with compassion and the best of care hospice services that make a difference every day, we always need the support of the donation of goods for supporting fundraising events such as raffle prizes, silent auctions, table top sales & tombola’s.
Donations can be left at the Hospice reception Monday to Friday between 9am – 4pm. alternately, you can call the Hospice direct on 01302 796662 or 798391 to arrange an appointment.
All donations of goods and/or raffle prizes for our fundraising events are greatly appreciated
You might want to consider making a donation or maybe a regular gift. The amount you donate is entirely up to you. We value all contributions and by claiming Gift Aid on your donation we can claim an extra 25p for each pound you contribute. It’s easy to do and we will take care of the paperwork for you. You’ll find a donation form Tools & Resources web page.
Many companies are pleased to support staff participation in fundraising and may also match-fund money you raise, sponsor events, give gifts-in-kind or donate raffle prizes.
They may even adopt the hospice as their Charity of the Year. Why not ask your employer if this is something they’d be interested in?
Payroll Giving is another way employers can help. This allows you to donate by making a direct deduction from your wage. Donations are tax effective so we would receive your contribution plus the tax you would have paid on this amount. Contact your company’s payroll department who can set this up for you. A useful link is the Geared for Giving website at gearedforgiving.com
Schools are also often very supportive and may let you raise funds at one of their events or adopt the hospice as their charity partner or Charity of the Year. Ask your child’s school – you never know, they might be looking for a good cause to support!
