Donate your celebration

Many of our supporters choose to dedicate their birthday, wedding or anniversary to the hospice by asking for donations instead of gifts. This kind gesture goes such a long way in supporting patient care.

Join an event

Get involved in one of the many exciting events that we host each year and help raise vital funds for people in our care.

"We turned our passion for knitting into cash for the Hospice!"

Jan Smith and her friends, Hilary and Lynda, have raised over £2000 selling their quirky crochet to raise money.

"The Hospice saved Vlad and they saved me."

When the pandemic hit, Vlad, who lived in a care home, was unable to be visited by his parents. In his distress, his condition deteriorated and the Hospice got involved to help co-ordinate his care and manage his pain. His mother now credits the Hospice with saving her son's life.

Your support helps to fund care for people like Vlad, who live with incurable conditions. 

Don't forget to Gift Aid it!

Your donations to Saint Francis Hospice could be worth 25% more, at no cost to you!

As soon as you give your permission by completing our Gift Aid declaration form we could claim 25p from HMRC for every £1 you have donated to Saint Francis Hospice at no extra cost to you. We can even claim for donations made up to four years ago.

That means a £10 donation is worth £12.50 and a £50 donation is worth £62.50.
