Special Occasion Giving
Marking a Special Occasion
You can make your special occasion extra special by helping those that depend on St John’s Hospice. Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, memorials and any other special occasion can all support the Hospice. By asking your guests and friends to make donations to St John’s, you are assured that many people will benefit from your generous decisions.
How it works
- We will then send you our special donation envelopes that you can send with your invitations or give out on the day.
- Your guests can send the donations to us by post or choose to donate online or via the telephone. Another easy and efficient way is to set up an everydayhero page for your friends and family to give.
- We will keep you up-to-date with how much you have raised and also thank your guests and friends for their generous support on your behalf.
How our patients can benefit
- A gift of £150 could pay for a therapist to visit our Day Services Centre to offer patients a range of complementary therapies, including reflexology, massage and acupuncture
- A gift of £200 could fund an annual education and training session for our volunteers.
- A gift of £500 could fund monthly visits from our Bereavement Co-ordinator to a family dealing with the loss of a loved one.
- A gift of £1,000 could support a patient staying in our 19-bed Inpatient Unit.
By celebrating with a difference, you make your special occasion even more meaningful and you’ll know that you are doing something really amazing.

'We knew that a lot of friends and family were very keen to buy us a present but we were also conscious that we were fortunate enough to already have many of the things we actually needed. I would recommend it as a way to donate, so long as you don’t tell people what they have to donate because charitable giving is always a very personal thing. St John’s Hospice cared for my dad when he was in the final stages of lung cancer in December 2003 and the excellent care he received was a real comfort to the family at the time.' A couple on their wedding day.
'The concert in memory of my husband was in part to thank all our wonderful friends who had helped and supported us on our journey and in part to raise funds for St John’s Hospice where he spent the last two and a half weeks of his life... The staff at the Hospice are truly caring and sensitive both to the needs of the patient and their families. I was able to spend precious time with my husband, which was not available to me when he was at home and I felt more confident that he was comfortable and in the most capable hands possible.' Supporter speaking after a concert in honour of her husband.
