We’ve got options for everyone this year!

Get Together

Inspiration

A social event is always fun, so why not add some fundraising? Whether it’s a bake sale, an afternoon tea, a knit and natter or a coffee morning, you’ll be doing something amazing for your local community with your friends and family. 

Get Together in

your garden

Get outside with your nearest and dearest, or open your garden for others to see- a social event in your garden is a great way to raise money for St Wilfrid’s. All our advice is in this handy downloadable pack. 

Do you have your own idea?

Whether it is organising a small get together in your garden or a larger event for your community – we’re here to support you. Explore the ideas in the pack and read our best advice on how to make your idea a reality to play a part in supporting vital hospice care.

The best way to get support is to get directly in touch with Jenny Murrell, Community Fundraiser for the Hospice. Jenny is here to develop your idea, give you tailored advice, answer questions you have and much more. Get in touch today by calling on 01243 755 184 or emailing her: Jenny.Murrell@stwh.co.uk

St Wilfrid’s Hospice is marking 35 years of expert care and compassionate end of life care in the local community in 2022. With over 360 patients being seen at any one time, our nurses’ caseloads have increased by more than 40% since the pandemic began. Your Get Together could do the world of good in the following ways:

  • £35 could sponsor an expert palliative care nurse caring for patients on our ward during the night for an hour
  • £35 could sponsor a Healthcare Assistant caring for our patients during the day on our ward for two hours
  • £350 could sponsor 10 hours of visiting time for a Clinical Nurse Specialist to support patients at home
  • £350 could able us to provide over 100 nutritious and delicious meals for patients.
  • £3500 could pay for 3 syringe drivers, to give continuous, effective pain relief medicine to patients to manage their symptoms
  • £3500 could pay for 6 days of care on our ward for one patient
