Birthdays

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

We are thrilled that you’ve chosen to support the Hospice of the Good Shepherd on your special day. Thank you for putting the needs of people with life limiting illnesses first on your birthday.

How do I set up a birthday fundraiser?

There are two main platforms you can use to create your birthday fundraiser, JustGiving and Facebook. Both are really simple to set up and your donations will automatically be transferred to the Hospice so you can concentrate on celebrating your special day.

Do not be afraid to share your fundraiser often with your friends and family. You are giving them the opportunity to contribute to a cause which is important to you. Make sure you also thank people when they donate, you are the reason they are kindly supporting our work.

Having a party?

If you have all you need and want to avoid the endless bottles of fizz and boxes of chocolate, why not ask for donations to your local Hospice instead of gifts?

We can provide you with collection tins/buckets, (balloons, special giving in celebration envelopes which can be circulated with an invitation to your party or distributed at the event itself). We can also offer you help in setting up an online fund raising page or Face book fundraiser.

At the Hospice of the Good Shepherd we know we cannot add days to the lives of our patients but your selfless gift could ensure that we fill those days with life, making the most of every precious minute.

Lastly, we would like to thank you for setting up your fundraiser. Please let us know when you set one up by emailing fundraising@hospicegs.com or by calling 01244 851811.
