Fundraise at school

Lots of schools fundraise for John Taylor Hospice. With every pound donated, your pupils are supporting your local hospice make a different in your community.

If your school would like to support us, but you are stuck for ideas, how about:

  • Dancing the night away – hold a school disco with an entry price.
  • Baking it – hold a cake sale or even a Bake-Off competition!
  • Getting sponsored – whether it’s a walk, run, swim or silence, sponsored events are great for team spirit.
  • Donning your best – a quick and easy fundraiser is a non-uniform day.
  • Hosting a fayre – with tombolas, raffles and other stalls, a fayre packed full of activities can be a fun event for all ages.

For more ideas click on our Fundraising Pack.

If you would like someone from John Taylor Hospice to visit your school and talk about our care, or about how your money can help us support local families, please get in touch.

And if you are planning a fundraiser for us please tell us in advance so we can support you. Email [email protected] or call 0121 728 6739.

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. “
