We need your support more than ever!

There are lots of different ways to support St Luke’s and one way is to choose us as your Charity of the Year.

Charity of the Year partnerships allow us to build momentum over 12 months. We can help you devise a plan of fundraising activities and volunteering opportunities for your staff. All the funds you raise will ‘stay local’ and support local people and their families.

It really doesn’t matter whether you are a team of 2 or 200 – we would love to have you on board.

You can start your Charity of the Year partnership at any time – call Andy in our fundraising team on 01606 555872 or email andy.bailey@slhospice.co.uk

How does a Charity of the Year partnership work?

* Let’s get together – It’s always a good idea to meet up and discuss how you want to support St Luke’s and how we can help you achieve this.

* How much would you like to raise? £100? £1000? £10,000? It’s your call – get the staff on board and set your own fundraising target.

* Devise a fundraising plan – How you decide to raise funds for St Luke’s is up to you! Create a plan that will appeal to and excite your staff.

* Maximising our Partnership – We will work with you to generate press coverage, support your ideas, get your staff engaged and share your activities on social media.

* Go For It – We’ll leave you alone to get on with supporting St Luke’s, but if you ever need help or support, then we are only a phone call or email away!

It’s not just about raising funds…

Corporate Volunteering – We have lots of opportunities for you to practically support St Luke’s – whether it’s helping out in our charity shops, sprucing up the Hospice gardens or volunteering at one of our events.
