One way to get involved with Weston Hospicecare and help us raise much-needed funds is to hold your own event. There are lots of different options, whether you want to brew up support by taking part in Care for a Cuppa, help us grow by having your own Open Garden day or do something else entirely.
Whatever you choose, we’re on hand to help you with anything you need, from giving you tips and ideas to helping you with promoting your event. Your safety is important to us, so please read our guide to keeping your fundraising event safe and legal.

How your company can support Weston Hospicecare
As a local charity, the work we do has a direct impact on your local community. Every year, we rely on the support of hundreds of businesses and others in our local area to help us raise £2.7 million each year. This support comes in many forms, such as raising money as part of Charity of the Year initiatives, match-funding the money that employees raise for the hospice and encouraging staff to volunteer for the hospice.
If you are thinking of supporting Weston Hospicecare at your company or organisation, please contact us on 01934 423 927 or email us. Together, we can help bring life to days for hundreds of local people affected by life-limiting illnesses.
