school total florishing fiversStudents are encouraged to use their business skills to double or triple a five pound note organising a fundraising event or maybe doing a challenge?

We encourage ideas, getting students to work as a team or individually. Most importantly we want you to have fun whilst making a difference to our free care and services.

We can provide your school with buckets, balloons, wristbands, t-shirts to help with your fundraising activities. A fundraiser is always on hand to give advice to students and help them with their ideas.



Rudolph Run – get moving with Richie the St Richard’s reindeer this Christmas!

Join Richie and hold a fundraising Rudolph Run for St Richard’s Hospice for Christmas 2020.

How does it work?
You decide! Organise your own sponsored walk or jog, or think outside the box and do something different! Rudolph dance-a-thon, anyone?

In return, we’ll supply you with everything you need to make sure your event is a success.

We can also visit your school or group to talk to students about the work of St Richard’s Hospice, helping them understand the difference they can make to their community.

Get involved!
