Midweek Visiter - - Southport Bid St Joseph’s Hospice -

HAPPY New Year from ev­ery­one at St Joseph’s Hospice!

It’s that time of year when we’re all think­ing about what we want to achieve in the year ahead.

What can we do bet­ter and how can we help oth­ers?

At St Joseph’s Hospice, we have lots of ex­cit­ing plans for 2019 as our New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is to reach out and care to even more peo­ple liv­ing with life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses in Mersey­side.

We also want to be able to sup­port more fam­i­lies who are fac­ing the loss of a loved one.

There are so many ways you can help us to achieve this in 2019, so please make sup­port­ing the hospice one of your New Year’s res­o­lu­tions.

Here are just a few of the ways you could help us...

Join our hospice lot­tery, where just £1 per week can make a huge dif­fer­ence. Plus you could win a range of cash prizes every sin­gle week, in­clud­ing the £1,000 jack­pot!

Set up a reg­u­lar do­na­tion and Gift Aid it or make a one-off do­na­tion by tex­ting JOSP05 fol­lowed by any amount (e.g. JOSP05 £10) to 70070.

Sup­port our grow­ing num­ber of re­tail shops by do­nat­ing good qual­ity clothes, toys, books, jew­ellery, fur­ni­ture and house­hold goods.

In 2019, we’d love to con­nect with more lo­cal busi­ness and will be of­fer­ing an in­creas­ing num­ber of spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Why not make the hospice your char­ity of the year in 2019? Or or­gan­ise your own events, such as cake sales, raf­fles and dress down days?

How about vol­un­teer­ing? We have lots of op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able and are es­pe­cially in need of shop vol­un­teers to help us run our char­ity shops.

We’re also look­ing for hospice-based vol­un­teers with good ad­min­is­tra­tion skills and we have a new role avail­able for vol­un­teers to take an af­ter­noon tea trol­ley around the wards for pa­tients.

Many of our shop vol­un­teers form life­long friend­ships and it’s a great way to get out the house and do some­thing fun and worth­while.

We’re plan­ning lots of fun events and ac­tiv­i­ties this year so why not keep in­formed and up to date by fol­low­ing us on so­cial me­dia (@JospiceUK) or keep an eye on our web­site www.jospice.org. uk.

There’s sure to be an event or fundrais­ing ac­tiv­ity to suit you.

Fi­nally, we’re cur­rently on the look­out for any un­wanted and un­opened Christ­mas gift sets.

If you have any, please do­nate them to our fundrais­ing team.

We’re al­ways in need of raf­fle prizes for events.

Your sup­port is so valu­able to the hospice so please help us in 2019.

To find out how you can sup­port St Joseph’s Hospice in 2019, please call 0151 932 6044 or email [email protected] org.uk.

For up to date news and in­for­ma­tion, please fol­low @JospiceUK on Twit­ter and Face­book and St Joseph’s Hospice Mersey­side on Linked In.
