Supporting us this Christmas
This festive season we have a variety of ways in which to support our services.
Hospice Christmas Cards
Our 2022 Christmas card collection is now available, featuring a beautiful selection of designs to suit all tastes. The cards come in packs of 10 and cost just £3.50 with all profits supporting our palliative care services. The cards are available by mail order, in our Hospice shops or from Hospice Reception. For full details call us on 01424 445117.
Christmas Card Appeal
If you’re looking to go eco-friendly this Christmas, why not join our Christmas Card Appeal? The Christmas Card Appeal offers family, friends and colleagues an opportunity to spread festive cheer, reduce waste and raise funds by writing Christmas messages to one another in one large, shared card. We provide a complimentary card, so all that is left to do is place the card and a collection pot somewhere visible and ask those who sign the card make a donation. For more details, or to order a card, please call 01424 456396 or email us.
Lottery Christmas Crackers
Our Hospice Lottery team has also launched a box of six plastic free, recyclable luxury Christmas crackers each containing a £1 scratch card. The crackers cost just £15 per box and are available to order directly from the Hospice Lottery team on 01424 456384 or by emailing us. Alternatively, you can purchase them from our Hospice shops or Reception. Lottery scratch cards and gift vouchers also available.
Lights of Love
Whether your loved one received the care of St Michael’s Hospice or not, young or old, local or further afield, all can be remembered with Lights of Love.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back to join together in the simple act of writing a personal message on a star which you can add to your own tree, or to one of our special Lights of Love trees. This year we will have eight locations across Hastings and Rother where the Lights of Love celebrations will be held. Full event details, including dates and venues, can be found here.
We have some lovely Christmas badges available to help raises funds at your workplace or local community groups and clubs. Supporters can buy a badge in exchange for a £1 donation. If you’d like a box for your workplace, simply call our Fundraising team on 01424 456396 or email us to request one.
