Organise your own fundraising

We wouldn’t be able to care for all of the people we do without the support of generous people like yourself, raising vital funds for Birmingham Hospice.

Where do I begin?

It’s entirely up to you what sort of event you’d like to host; it could be a huge party in a local social club or a coffee morning in your very own home. Every fundraiser means the world to the people we care for and helps to ensure we can continue to be there when families need us most.

Step 1:

Pick a time and a place to suit you and your guests

Step 2:

Involve your friends and family – they’ll be more than happy to help, all you have to do is ask

Step 3:

Tell us about your event, so we can support you and provide fundraising bits and bobs

Step 4:

Spread the word, let everyone know it’s taking place

Step 5:

Host your fundraiser!

Join a fundraising group

Our fundraising groups are made up of wonderful, like-minded individuals who all join together to support their local hospice. Joining a fundraising group is a great way for you to get out-and-about in your local community, meet new friends, develop and support new and existing skills, and have fun.

Fundraise as a school

We are so grateful for the support we receive from schools, getting involved in our much-loved campaigns Bunny Hop and Rudolph Run, and organising their own fundraising. By fundraising as a school, you raise vital funds to support local people living with a terminal diagnosis, and we support you every step of the way.

If you would like to fundraise with your school, we would love to hear from you – please do get in touch.

How your fundraising makes a difference


Could buy a teddy bear with a recording of a loved one’s voice for a bereaved child to treasure as a keepsake.


Could pay for one hour of Living Well Centre services, supporting people to live well, manage their symptoms and take part in therapeutic activities.


Could pay for a bereavement support session to help a family member cope with the loss of a loved one.


Could pay for a community nurse to visit someone at home, helping them manage their symptoms and coordinating their care.

To me, the hospice is a great place of support. It’s important to me to meet other people with similar conditions who I can talk and relate to. I feel comfortable when I come here, and that I can be myself. I love chatting to the others here; I try to make people feel comfortable too if they are new or just if they’re having a bad day.
