Fundraising is the engine that keeps this special hospice open for the families that rely on our nursing team. The care that these amazing children require will never cease and neither will the efforts of our fundraisers and volunteers to make sure the funds are always there to keep the doors of Zoë's Place open.
As with all children’s hospices we receive a modest amount of funding from the NHS and central Government. This funding is very important to us as the service to the families is provided entirely free of charge, but, it only goes a small way towards the costs of running the hospice. The reality is that Zoë’s Place relies almost entirely on donations from our supporters.
In this section you will find details of how you and your friends can make a real difference to the lives of the young children who come to Zoë's Place each day. We are always looking for new ideas and opportunities and would love to hear from you, your company or organisation if you feel you could help.
Over the years supporters have come up with a staggering array of fundraising ideas. They range from organising Gala Balls and bike rides to running in charity half marathons and trekking up mountains. We have even had children raffling their very own Easter eggs to their friends to raise funds for the hospice!
Remember, there are no limits on good fundraising ideas. If you have thought up a concept that you are passionate about and feel could help benefit the hospice then come and talk to one of the team.
The only barriers in fundraising are our own imaginations.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We all hope you will be inspired to help support Zoë’s Place.
