Hospice launches new giving scheme

Party revellers are being invited to give up gifts to help people with terminal illness.

Instead St Catherines’s Hospice would like them to give money to the charity using its newly launched “In Celebration” range of stationery specially designed for the purpose.

The stationery can be used by guests preferring to give cash instead of gifts, or by the bride and groom making a donation instead of providing wedding favours at a reception.

All money raised from the In Celebration stationery range will go towards providing hospice care for  terminally ill patients and loved ones.

Every year, it costs the hospice £6 million to fund all its care services, which are provided free of charge to patients and families. Each pack contains attractive donation envelopes, allowing guests to give a donation with discretion, reversible place name cards, designed to let guests know of the support to the hospice.

For more details, or to request a  sample “In Celebration” pack, contact Frankie Goodall on 01293 447361 or email

Fund raiser Louise Brown is pictured encouraging people to swap gifts such as rings for cash gifts to help hospice patients.
