Suggested wording for online fundraisers

“For my/our birthday/retirement/wedding/anniversary this year, I am asking for donations to the Hospice of the Good Shepherd. I hope you will consider celebrating my/our special day by giving to this cause which is close to my/our heart/s.

Hospice of the Good Shepherd provides its services free of charge to its patients. Just 20% of the funding they receive comes from statutory sources. The remaining 80% is raised from a range of fundraising activities and the support of their very generous local community in Cheshire and beyond.

Their dedicated team of staff and healthcare professionals aim to meet the unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of those with a life-limiting illness, and to help maintain their dignity. They provide specialist palliative care for people with cancer and non-cancer life-limiting illnesses, at all stages of their illness.

By donating you are helping to ensure that end of life care is there for everyone that needs it now and in the future. Thank you for your support!”
