Fundraising Groups

No idea is too small, have you ever thought you would be good at organising an event but would like to do it as part of a group rather than by yourself?

From a cake stall to a quiz night or a garden party to a car boot sale.  All these ideas and many more help to raise vital funds for The Hospice of St Francis.

What is a fundraising group

A fundraising group is a group of volunteers coming together all with the same aim, to help raise the profile and funds for the hospice.  Get together with friends, family or work colleagues in your local community to help raise funds for your local Hospice.

How do I join a fundraising group?

This is a new incentive for the Hospice although we do already have a few groups that have recently set up.

What is the idea of a fundraising group?

The idea is to organise regular meetings and discuss and plan ways to raise awareness and help arrange local events for The Hospice of St Francis.  It’s also a great way to make new friends who all have a common interest. Our supporters always like to work with volunteers and it’s always great to see how people work together.

Will I get support from the Hospice of St Francis?

Yes, we can provide you with literature about the Hospice, information on our events we can let you borrow our banners, and send you literature, advice on fundraising and organising events.  Your local Community Fundraiser at the Hospice will always be on hand to help.


We have a fundraising group who organised a Spring Ball last year, they organised everything themselves from location to tickets to entertainment.  They raised an incredible £41,000 for The Hospice.

Knitting for the Hospice – we have a dedicated army of knitters who put their needles to good working making toys, baby clothes and many other knitted items. Some meet every week for a knit and natter!
