How your sponsorship makes all the difference

Your sponsorship makes all the difference

Thank you for choosing to support St Margaret’s – we really do value your commitment to fundraise on behalf of the hospice.

We know that there are so many wonderful causes to choose from and we are thrilled that you have chosen us, given that one in three people will need the care of St Margaret’s in their lifetime.

We’re here to support your fundraising

When you take part in a St Margaret's event your booking fee covers the cost of us putting on the event. That’s why we ask you to raise sponsorship on top of your entry fees, and it’s this financial contribution that enables us to continue providing our care. Each event will have a different sponsorship goal, but 100% of the funds you raise will go directly towards helping families in our community make the most of the time they have left together.

The thought of fundraising can be a daunting, but it doesn’t have to be – we are here to support you every step of the way, so that your fundraising can also be a fun and rewarding challenge! Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you as a way of showing their support.

Here's some of our top tips to help you raise as much sponsorship money as you can...

Set up an online fundraising page

If you’ve already set up an online fundraising page, fantastic! If not, visit Just Giving or set up a fundraiser through Facebook fundraising. Once it’s set up, you just need to share it as much as possible – post it on your social media pages and email it to friends, family and work colleagues.

Download a sponsorship form

For those who don’t want to donate online. Make sure you let all your friends and family know what event you’re doing and that you would like them to support you by donating on your sponsorship form.

Do a sweepstake

Why not do a sweepstake on the time you’ll complete your event in? Even if your event is not a timed event, it’s easy to time yourself with a phone or watch. Ask people to donate £1 (or more if they’re feeling generous!) to bet on your time and then the winner gets half of the proceeds.

Matched giving

Lots of companies now take part in Matched Giving where they will match the amount of fundraising an employee does for a charity (up to a pre-determined level), thereby doubling your total. Ask your employer about matched giving.
