Give in Celebration at your special event
From weddings and civil partnerships to anniversaries, landmark birthdays or retirement collections, your celebration can be made even more special by asking family and friends for donations to The Hospice of St Francis in lieu of gifts.
Emma and Robin Smith did just that when they tied the knot in June 2016. Keen to remember Robin’s father, Gordon, who had been cared for by the Hospice in 2014, the new Mr and Mrs Smith asked for guests to bring homemade cakes that were then sold for the Hospice at their reception bake sale.
Newlywed Emma said, “We were so happy to be able to remember Gordon in such a special way at our big day. The family wore Hospice pin badges, while guests donated as our way to say thank you for his care!”
If you would like to include the Hospice in your special day or celebration, please contact our Community Fundraising team on 01442 869 555 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear about your plans and can provide gift envelopes, collection buckets or boxes, and balloons to decorate your venue. Pin badges are also available, with a suggested donation of £1.50 per badge.
An easy way to let everyone know that you are requesting donations to the Hospice in lieu of gifts is to set up an In Celebration fundraising page. It’s quick and easy to set up your own personalised page, just follow the instructions here.
