A vital part of our work is our National Fundraising Scheme which gives local children’s hospice services the opportunity to benefit from national corporate partnerships, and provides vital funding for services across the country.
Over the past 15 years the scheme has raised over £20 million for the children’s hospice sector. Through the scheme we have worked with some huge national – and international – companies, including Disney, ITV, Santander bank, Wilko, Hobbycraft, Center Parcs, The Sun, The Mirror and The X Factor. Partners can choose to fund the whole scheme or restrict their donations to nominated children’s hospice services, usually local to their business locations.
The scheme is a great way to engage large companies, and allows local children’s hospices – all of whom are small local charities, reliant on charitable support – to act collectively to attract funding from companies that otherwise might prefer not to support individual local charities.
If you’re interested in finding out more about our partners, or you’re interested in your company joining the scheme, please see the Company Giving section of our website.
