Be a hero and help raise money for children’s hospices

News and comment

Children’s Hospice Week is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for children with life-limiting conditions and the services, like children’s hospices, that support them. It takes place this year between 26 April and 3 May, culminating with Superhero Friday – a special day of hero inspired fundraising.

Children’s hospices care and support children not expected to reach adulthood and their families. Together for Short Lives is calling on you to be a hero in Children’s Hospice Week and help raise funds for these vital services. This year we will be focusing on siblings to raise awareness of how the whole family is affected and how services support brothers and sisters through special groups and activities.

You can get involved by taking part in Superhero Friday (3 May). You could dress up as a superhero and make a donation, sponsor a friend or colleague to be a hero for the day, or take part in our superhero sweepstake. Be a hero for an hour and help make every moment count for children and families by donating an hour of your wages, volunteering for an hour, or raising as much money as you can in an hour. Help children and families make the most of their precious time together.

We’ve developed a fundraising guide, packed with ideas and inspiration to get you and your friends and family involved. Every penny you raise will make a lifetime of difference to children and families.
