Heroes from Home

Working from home doesn't mean you can't be a fundraising hero, there are plenty of ways in which you can support St Ann's, even from the comfort of your own home!

The current climate has greatly impacted our funding, with many of our large-scale events and other activities being postponed or cancelled, however, we’ve been brainstorming and have come up with a few ways in which you can support our hospice, whilst ensuring that you keep safe.

Here are a few ideas in which you can show your support for St Ann’s.

From Fuel to Funds

Working from home, why not donate the cost of your commute? On average a person spends £23.50 on a weekly train ticket and £67.63 on fuel for the month – a donation of this kind helps our hospice to offer outstanding care and support with a broad range of services and amenities.

Brew for Who?

Luxury teas and coffees are often the morning saviour and during lockdown you’ve no doubt saved a fortune. Why not donate a proportion to us? 

Homebased Brains

Put your colleagues to the test and join your teammates on Zoom with a lunchtime quiz. Break up the day with a sponsored quiz by simply setting up a JustGiving page to collect donations.

Dress up Friday

Joggers and PJs are the standard attire during lockdown, now we’re asking you to fold them up and dress it up with a unique twist on the traditional dress down day. Show off your style on a team video chat and set up a JustGiving page to collect donations.

Coronavirus Swear Jar

The entire world is talking about the Coronavirus, how many times a day do you say it? Instead of your typical swear jar, we’re asking you to put £1 into a jar whenever you reference ‘Coronavirus,’ ‘covid’ and ‘social distancing’ and donate the collection to St Ann’s. You can pay your collection online, via our donation page.

School Uniform Day

Are your children missing wearing their school uniform? Why not sponsor them to wear their school uniform for a day, week or even the rest of lockdown? You can even get family and friends supporting school uniform lockdown look by setting up a JustGiving page.

Your donations really do make a difference and help our hard-working doctors, nurses, clinical teams, housekeepers, catering staff and other experts at the hospice to continue to deliver outstanding care and support to our patients and their loved ones.
