Christmas Fundraising

1 in 4 families who need hospice care can’t get it. Please help us to be there for every family who needs hospice care this Christmas by getting involved with some of our festive fundraising ideas!

Christmas Jumper Day

This December, round up your friends, colleagues or community group, wear your brightest, funniest, ugliest Christmas jumpers and support Ashgate Hospicecare. By taking part in the woolly fun and donating an amount of your choice, you’ll be helping our patients and their families access hospice care when it matters the most.

Find out more here or to download our Christmas Jumper Day poster, click here.

Light up a Life

This winter, you can make a difference to our patients and their families by dedicating a light to your loved one and celebrating somebody who has brought light to your life. Our lights will not only shine brightly for those we love, they will also represent so much more, as every single penny raised from donations will help those within our community to receive hospice care when they need it most.

To make a dedication and to light up a star in our virtual night sky, click here or call us on 01246 567250. On your dedication, you can write the name of your loved one, add a personal message and even upload a photograph.

Share Card

Share a Card for Ashgate Hospicecare this Christmas! Instead of buying cards for colleagues, use a Share Card and send a donation to Ashgate Hospicecare instead. It couldn’t be easier, just pin your card on the staff noticeboard and invite people to write a message and make a donation.

If you’d like an Ashgate Hospicecare Share Card, please get in touch with Charlotte on 01246 567250 or email

Christmas Cake Sale

Mince pies, gingerbread or a yule log… Whatever you fancy, why not bake it for Ashgate Hospicecare and host your very own Christmas cake sale at home with friends and family, at work, at school or in a local community centre? Whether you organise a laid back coffee morning or a classy afternoon tea, your event will help to make a real difference this Christmas.

You can register your Christmas cake sale by emailing the Fundraising Team on or by telephoning 01246 567250. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you have about your event!

Boost your fundraising!

You can help raise more money for the Hospice by having a box of Christmas cuddlies in your place of work. These lovely little Christmas characters make great stocking fillers or tree ornaments, or why not have some fun by raffling off one of our Christmas hampers among colleagues. Contact our Fundraising Team to request your box of cuddlies or Christmas Hamper on or by telephoning 01246 567250.


Whichever way you choose to support us this Christmas, you’ll help us care for more patients and their families, like Fran. Watch her story below.

If you would like any help with your fundraising, our Fundraising Team will be happy to help! You can contact us by emailing or by telephoning 01246 567250. Thank you and Merry Christmas from everyone at Ashgate Hospicecare.
