Currently, 75p of every pound we raise is used to provide front line care and support to our patients and families. We only get 20% of the £5m we need to run the Hospice from the NHS, the rest has to come from events like yours and other donations. Every penny counts.Close
The Government operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated. So, if you are a UK taxpayer and you donated £100 to St. Rocco’s Hospice, it means that we will actually receive £125 at no extra cost to you.Close

Planning a virtual fundraising event will take just as much planning as an actual live event, so make sure that you think about every stage and plan well. It's important to launch your fundraising page with enough time to promote the virtual event. Also, you will need lots of pictures and videos to rally up support so make sure your phone is at the ready!Close
Spread the word about your amazing virtual fundraising event on social media. Share a link to your fundraising page on as many communication tools as possible where you have an audience such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Live streaming your activity is a great way to boost donations. If you let people know when they can tune in, you can talk to your audience and encourage donations in real time. It also gives your friends and family something to look forward to watching.
