Become a Charity Champion for Woodlands
Support Woodlands Hospice for #LocalCharitiesDay 2018!
Local Charities Day aims to enhance relationships between businesses, charities and local areas, to help communities grow. And that’s what we want to achieve this Local Charities Day 2018.
This year, the focus is on the importance of giving by encouraging people to pledge their time to a local charity, alongside championing the phenomenal and life-changing work of local charities, while shining a huge spotlight on local charity champions – the unsung heroes who always go the extra mile for their charity, the people and causes they support.
We would like to thank all of our #CharityChampions for everything you do for us! Here are just a few off our existing champions:
Alison is the niece of Father Tom Leigh who was involved from the start of the Woodlands project to build a Hospice for the local community. Father Tom became a patient at the Hospice last year before sadly passing away and Alison has supported us ever since in his memory. Alison has already held events in aid of Woodlands Hospice fundraising and supported our Light up a Life 2018 Appeal by switching on the lights during our Hospice Service.
Alison has now become one of our #CharityChampions within the community by starting her own Woodlands Community Group to focus on increasing our presence within the local community and she will organise her own, regular fundraising events and activities in support of us. Thank you Alison for your support!
Olivia has been fundraising for the Hospice in memory of her Grandad by organising events at school to help raise money for our services. Olivia was invited to support our Light up a Life Appeal by switching on the Christmas Lights at our service in St Andrew's Church, Maghull. Olivia also received a civic award for her charitable work and, after news of her fundraising efforts appeared in the local press, her story inspired another member of the public to make a generous donation to Woodlands Hospice and sign up as a volunteer! A true #CharityChampion!
All of our Volunteers
Every single one of our Volunteers provide an invaluable resource for the Hospice which allows us to operate all areas to a high standard to ensure we provide the highest quality of care to our patients and their families. We have over 200 volunteers who give up their time on a regular basis to support us in all areas of the Hospice from reception through to the catering team, the wards and our Charity Shops. We can't thank you all enough!
