As we head towards Christmas, we want to remind you that there are several ways that you can support St Wilfrid’s this festive season.

Christmas Cards

We have 15 unique Christmas Card designs available at our 12 charity shops and online shop for you to buy and share the festive feeling with loved ones, while also helping to support local lives.

Three of our 15 designs are unique to the local area, and all of our cards come in recyclable packaging to help protect the environment, so you can purchase them knowing that you are helping to support our Hospice services.

You can purchase our Christmas Cards at any of our 12 charity shops, as well as our online shop.

Secondhand Shopping

Looking for some new winter clothes or are you on the hunt for some Christmas presents?

Our 12 charity shops offer affordable, good-quality items so you can get your Christmas shopping sorted without breaking the bank. By shopping with St Wilfrid’s, you not only are helping protect the environment by shopping secondhand, but also making a difference to local lives as every purchase helps a patient. We also have our Online Shop, for those who prefer to shop from the comfort of their sofa.

We now sell and accept The Charity Shop Gift Card at our charity shops, so you can give the gift of thrifting, making charity shopping even more accessible.


If you receive any unwanted gifts this Christmas, consider donating them to our shops, keeping them out of landfill, and allowing someone else to take them home and cherish them.


We are offering our Christmas Tree Recycling service to the local community again this New Year.

Our volunteer elves will be heading around to pick up your real Christmas Tree from your front lawn and take it to be recycled into wood chippings and mulch to help benefit local farmland. Saving you from the hassle of cleaning pine needles out of your car this Christmas.

You can book for your tree to be collected for a suggested donation of £15 until January 7th 2024.

Light Up a Life

Light Up A Life is St Wilfrid’s annual in-memory service, celebrating and remembering loved ones, held at the Chichester Cathedral from 6pm on December 10th.

Join many others in lighting a candle in memory of their loved ones and enjoy readings, music and prayers.

This is a much-loved annual event and spaces are limited, so please secure your free place as soon as possible on the form below to avoid disappointment.


Why not gift your time this Christmas?

St Wilfrid’s Hospice has fantastic volunteers all across the organisation, helping to keep up the expert care and compassion we provide to patients and their loved ones.
