Community Groups for St Christopher’s

Making a difference together

At St Christopher’s we rely on the support of our community.

Since we were founded in 1967, local community groups have raised vital funds, volunteered where needed most, and contributed in countless other ways. In 2019, community groups raised more than £60,000 for St Christopher’s.

To put that into perspective, this amount could enable nearly 4,000 Clinical Nurse Specialist visits to homecare patients allowing people to receive excellent care in the comfort of their home.

How can your group support us?

  • Raising funds
  • Volunteering your time for the hospice
  • Supporting with our annual events and initiatives
  • Raising awareness online and in the community

What can we
offer you?

  • Support from a member of the fundraising team
  • Various resources such as bunting, table banners and collection tins
  • We will promote and celebrate your fundraising on our website and social media
  • A St Christopher’s volunteer speaker to talk at your event
