Fundraise as a group

Are you part of a school, club, association, group, society, union or membership organisation? We would love to work with you and can help you in giving something back to your local hospice and community. You could host a quiz night, a Christmas jumper or non-uniform day.

Members of our Fundraising team can also visit your group to give an informative and age-appropriate session to raise awareness of hospice care and all the wonderful things we are doing to support people in the local community.

Take on a challenge

Walk, trek, swim, abseil. You could take on a challenge and help to support patients and their families in your community. As part of Team St John’s you will receive one-on-one support from our dedicated team, gain access to more fundraising tips and will get your own St John’s vest to wear whilst completing your challenge.
