The impact the pandemic has had on our adopted charity, Hope House Children’s Hospices has been significant. As a result, their donations disappeared overnight with their various shops closing and the scheduled fundraising events being cancelled or postponed until 2021.
To compound the issue, all face-to-face nursing now requires the use of full PPE, and the average cost per day has risen to £78.00 per child.
During the last 20 years, our many supporters have been truly amazing and as a result of your continued support, we have managed to raise over £2m through various events across the industry – bringing some fun into fundraising.
But this year is very different. We have not been able to deliver enjoyable fundraising industry events. Instead, we are reaching out at this time for Christmas donations towards keeping these wonderful children safe and help support the rising costs caused by the pandemic.
To keep it simple, we would be grateful for donations of multiples of £78.00 – the cost of just one child per day for PPE. Any donations of £780.00 or above will receive a GM Fundraising Champion 2021 logo which you will be welcome to use and promote across your business platforms.
To donate, please email Gary@gmfundraising.co.uk with the amount you would like to donate.
Your continued support has never been more important as it is now. The mission of Hope House is to ensure that no one should face the death of a child alone. And your donation will ensure that this never happens.
On behalf of everyone at GM Fundraising and Hope House Children’s Hospices we wish you a safe and peaceful Christmas.
