Schools & Youth

For schools who would like to support us, there are two main initiatives to get involved with.

The first is Flourishing Fivers where budding entrepreneurs are invited to turn £5 into double the amount or more, this is aimed at ages 12 and above.  To find out more about how schools got top marks this year click here

The second is ‘Hats for Hospice’ where schools can choose a day to let their pupils where a hat and donate a £1 to the hospice. Anything goes whether it’s silly, wacky, homemade or sports cap. It’s something for everyone, whatever their age to get involved with and have fun.

If you choose to take part in these initiatives you will be fully supported by the hospice to help make your fundraising a success!

We also ask schools to consider us as a beneficiary from school events such as concerts, non-uniform days, fetes and collections. Or even as their chosen charity of the year!

Community Fundraisers are available to give assemblies/ talks in schools or in other educational facilities. We also welcome small groups to tour the hospice to find out more about how we care for patients and families.

For more information please contact Community Fundraiser Lizzie Brazier on 01905 763963 or email
