Fundraise For Us!

Why Fundraise for Dr Kershaw’s?

The support of fundraisers like you really does make a difference and helps us to care for patients and their families both in the community and at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

There are so many ways for you to get involved with fundraising for Dr Kershaw’s Hospice, whether you’re an individual, business, school or group, there’s something for everyone!

From events that we organise at the Hospice to your very own fundraising activities, your help and support is invaluable for our Hospice and will play a vital role in helping our doctors, nurses and health care assistants to look after the patients in our care and their families.

Your Fundraising Journey

So you’ve decided you want to fundraise for Dr Kershaw’s Hospice and be a part of our patient’s care journey but what kind of activity could you do to raise funds? Here are a few ideas.

  • Throw a birthday party and hold a raffle in aid of the Hospice.
  • Hold a Bake-Off at work, get colleagues to vote for the best cake!
  • Arrange a sponsored event like cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End.
  • Take on a couch to 5k, 10k run or marathon!
  • Host a dinner party and ask guests for donations.
  • Wear a funny wig and/or funny socks for Hair for Hospices and Socktober or grow facial hair in Movember or Decembeard!
