Your small change can make a BIG difference

copper boxes

Our copper boxes are a simple way to make a donation which will enable our staff to provide compassionate care in Wigan and Leigh.

Christine Edwardson, Community Fundraiser, said: “Taking a copper box home is an easy and effective way to support the hospice.

“We’d like to see one of these in every home across Wigan and Leigh. If every adult in the Borough filled a copper box once a year with just £4 in loose change it would raise £1million.

“It’s a simple way to ensure that local people with incurable illnesses and those at the end of life receive the care and support they deserve.”

Copper boxes are available in all 10 of our hospice shops.

To see where the hospice shops are please see Our Shops.
