Become a Hospice Hero in 2021
Fundraising throughout a pandemic has proven to be our greatest challenge to date and the challenge is set to continue as we welcome in 2021. Would you help support us through the Coronavirus crisis by taking part in our #500faces appeal?
We are looking for 500 of our supporters to be our Hospice Heroes and pledge to donate or raise £100 each for us this 2021.
Sign up to be our Hospice Hero and we will feature a photo of you (or a picture that represents you) on our online #500faces dedication page of kindness. You can raise your £100 as an individual, a family, a group, a school or a company and you have until the end of the year to complete the challenge. As a thank you and token of our gratitude, individuals will receive our exclusive Hospice Hero #500faces pin badge and groups will receive a Hospice Hero #500faces certificate to proudly display.
In spite of restrictions, there are still lots of ways that you can help to raise vital funds for Bolton Hospice during this difficult and uncertain time. Check out our fundraising ideas below and download your sponsor forms and #500faces fundraising pack!
Eight year old supporter Oliver Heppleston is the first of our #500faces & has set himself the challenge of getting from Bolton to Paris virtually by rowing, running, walking, cycling and scooting during 2021. That’s a staggering 622km that he has tasked himself to complete to help raise valuable funds for the hospice!
Despite restrictions, there are still lots of ways that you can help raise vital funds for Bolton Hospice during this difficult and uncertain time. Lockdown certainly made fundraising challenging last year but our supporters got creative and came up with the most wonderful ways to help raise money for us.
Why every donation makes a difference
We rely on your donations because government funding only covers a fraction of our costs. Without your generosity we could not continue to provide our care. The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in cancelled fundraising and community events, and temporary closures of all of our charity shops resulting in lost income throughout 2020 and into 2021.
We need your help more than ever to continue caring for local families when they need it most.
What your £100 could pay for...
- A visit by our specialist Hospice at Home nurses, enabling a patient to be cared for in their own home
- 4 bereavement support sessions, helping families through the death of a loved one
- 6 hours of compassionate nursing care
