Fundraise for Wigan & Leigh Hospice
As a local charity the Hospice relies on the support of our community across Wigan and Leigh. We need to raise around £7,400 every day towards the running of the Hospice and are very grateful to local people who have supported us for over 30 years.
Wigan and Leigh Hospice supported by the Wigan Evening Post is launching the Counting on Care appeal to create an inpatient unit for the future and make it dementia-friendly.
This summer you can mark the life of a loved one and support the Hospice’s Counting on Care fundraising appeal if you Dedicate a Daisy.
Fundraising events are a vital part of our income, enabling us to continue to provide care and support services free of charge to patients, their families and carers.
Almost any event can be turned into a fundraising event. It can be a lot of fun - and every penny raised really does count.
It’s easy to create your own fundraising page to promote your event and simplify collecting donations.
Our annual ‘Light for a Life’ appeal provides an opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one.
The Business Support Group was established over sixteen years ago, originally to help fund the new building when the Hospice moved from its original Poolstock site to Hindley in 1997. Now with over sixty members, and with fundraising being more challenging than ever, the support of local businesses is vital in helping us continue and improve our service.
We need enthusiastic, keen, active people willing to help with promoting the hospice and fundraising in your locality. This is an exciting, practical way you can help our patients and have some fun.
