Share a Card and support the Hospice of the Good Shepherd this Christmas

Would you like to save time, money and space whilst also making a real difference to your local hospice this Christmas? Well you can, thanks to ‘Share a Card’ at the Hospice of The Good Shepherd.

Contact us to request our ‘Share a Card’ and you’ll be able to send seasonal good wishes to everyone at your workplace in one go and raise much needed funds for the Hospice explains Kevin Taylor, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Hospice of The Good Shepherd:

“It’s a great way of supporting our work and it’s totally free to initiate in your workplace. It’s easy to take part, simply request your card from us and display it in a communal area. Then, invite everyone to write their greeting inside the card and make a donation in lieu of the money they would have spent sending lots of individual Christmas cards.”

This year’s card is designed by 7 year old Keri Joyce. Keri accessed our pre and post Bereavement Support from our Reflect service and attended one of our ‘Remembering Days’ at the Hospice which are an opportunity for bereaved children and families to meet other people in the same situation as themselves.

Many of us will be touched by hospice care at some point in our lives and whether it’s a friend, family member or yourself that requires our care, the generosity of businesses and individuals is vitally important to help ensure we are there when people need us most.

All money raised from Share a Card, will go directly towards providing specialist palliative care for our patients and support for families and carers.

To take part in the Share a Card, simply request your card from Kevin Taylor, Corporate Fundraising Manager at kevin.taylor@hospicegs.com or call 01244 567848

If you would like to request a collection box for donations, please let us know.

On behalf of everyone at the Hospice of The Good Shepherd we would like to thank you for supporting us by participating in ‘Share a Card’ this year and wish you and your colleagues a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
