Our community fundraising team are here to help!

I want to organise my own fundraising event!

Excellent! Organising your own fundraising event can seem a daunting task, but we promise you it's something everybody can do. Please use these pages to find inspiring ideas, tools, tips and advice on how to get started and make as much money as possible for Saint Francis Hospice. 

We also have a number of ready-made fundraising initiatives to kick-start your fundraising activity. They are Big Brew and the Jam Jar Army

Will you help me?

Yes! Our community fundraising team are an experienced bunch and will help you with every aspect of your event. We can provide banners, balloons, collection boxes and buckets. We can put your event on our website. We can help you with publicity and marketing. We can help you with raffle prizes. We can point you in the direction of companies and organisations who can help you add the finishing touches to your event. We may even be able to provide a lion*. 

What do I need to do next?

Get in touch! Tell us about your event so we can lend you a hand (if that's what you need). Some people do organise their own events and post us the cheque, which is fine too. However, we love hearing what our supporters are up to - so why not share some pics on our Facebook page or tweet us? You may just inspire someone else too... 

It's easy to get in touch - you can call us on 01708 771431 or send us an email

Unsure fundraising is for you? Some of our current fundraisers have kindly told us their hints and tips, so why not see what they have to say?
