Celebration Giving


“So, what do you want this year?”  Whether it’s your birthday, anniversary or any other celebration this can sometimes be the hardest question to answer. People often get to the point where they have enough novelty socks and are fully stocked up on the soaps and body lotions. So why not spread the celebration a little further this year instead?

This is where Pendleside Hospice’s Celebration Giving campaign comes in helpful. This involves asking for donations to Pendleside in lieu of gifts and stopping presents that invariably just end up sat in cupboard, after being chosen and given with love from your friends and relatives.

Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Retirements and any other celebration can all support Pendleside. Fundraising staff will help with invitations, posters, donation envelopes and collection buckets to assist with your celebration and make it as easy as possible.

Last year alone Pendleside Hospice raised £23,350, including gift aid, from donations in lieu of gifts and this has now become a large part of our fundraising. This year the annual running costs exceed £4 million with over £3 million each year to be raised through donations and fundraising events.

If you would like to support Pendleside Hospice with your celebration or would like an information pack please contact the fundraising team on 01282 440120
