In lieu of gifts
If you have a birthday, anniversary or other celebration coming up you could support Hospice by asking your guests to make a donation to Hospice at Home West Cumbria in lieu of gifts.
A donation, however small, goes towards helping us provide specialist care for patients, their families and carers, at a time when they need it most.
Gift Aid your donations
Make your gift go further with Gift Aid!
Gift Aid is a scheme set up by HM Revenue and Customs that allows charities to reclaim the amount of tax you would have paid on your gift to us. Currently, we can claim 25p for every £1 that you donate to us from your fundraising, and it won’t cost you a penny.
For example, for every £10 you give we can claim an extra £2.50 in Gift Aid. It may not sound like a lot, but the combined effect of our supporters signing up to Gift Aid makes a huge contribution to our annual running costs.
If you are a UK taxpayer you can sign up for Gift Aid at no extra cost to you.
The number of people being helped by Hospice at Home West Cumbria is increasing each year. To enable us to provide our services free of charge to all those that need it we rely on volunteers and donations from the public.
Make a lasting difference – leave a gift in your Will
A gift in your Will can help us ensure that the people and families we look after continue to have access to the best possible care. Over the years we have been able to recruit more nurses, develop our services and ensure our teams are trained to deliver first-class care thanks to the gifts that people have left us in their Wills. Every single gift we receive helps us to make a real difference to the people of West Cumbria, no matter how large or small.
