Fundraise at home

While so many of us are at home and unable to get out and about to events, there are still lots of ways to fundraise – from your living room!

If you’re having to spend your birthday at home during this time why not turn your special day into a fundraiser? Set up a Birthday Fundraiser on facebook and ask your friends and family to donate to the hospice in lieu of gifts. You can set a target and reaching it will give you an extra reason to celebrate.

Support us while you shop online. On the following sites you can opt for John Taylor Hospice to receive a donation from the seller:

Give as You Live

It’s easy to do and won’t cost you a penny – and you’ll know that with every purchase you are helping to support local families.

Do you usually stop off for a coffee on your way to work, pay for weekly petrol or nip out for lunch from your local shops? Now you’re working at home, why not donate that regular spend to help us support local families? We need your support more now than ever so tot up your total and make your donation online. Every coffee you skip will be making a difference.

Gather your friends for a fun night-in and test their brain power with a virtual quiz. There are so many teleconferencing tools available to bring you all together. Whether it’s Zoom, Microsoft Messenger, GoToMeetings, Google Hangouts or countless others, it’s easy to host a virtual event with friends. Set your questions, plan your prize and ask the competitors to donate to the hospice to enter. Don’t forget to tell your friends to have snacks and drinks on hand for a really great evening.

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
