Community Fundraising

We rely on support from our local community to help us raise vital funds and continue to care for over 200 patients, and their families, each year.

Whether you are part of an organisation, church, club, school or just want to help, there is a part you can play in helping us continue to care. 

Raise money when you shop online!

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for St Joseph's Hospice - Thornton with easyfundraising?

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds. Each time you make a purchase online, a donation comes to the hospice.

Shop online at AmazonSmile

When you shop online at AmazonSmile, Amazon donates to St Joseph's Hospice.

You need to go to AmazonSmile (rather than the usual Amazon web page), sign in as usual and choose St Joseph's Hospice Merseyside as your chosen charity. Then, just shop as you normally would.

If you shop through the Amazon app, AmazonSmile is being  rolled out. To see if you can use AmazonSmile through your app, go to settings and if it is enable, AmazonSmile will be listed. Again, just select St Joseph's Hospice Merseyside as your chosen charity and shop as you normally would.

Hear about our work

Are you part of a group that regularly hosts speakers?

Plan your own event

Organising your own event can sound like a daunting task, but our fundraising team are here to help you every step of the way! 

We have lots of ideas of how you can support the hospice.

We can provide you with collecting tins, sponsor forms, a t-shirt and anything else you may need to make your event a success.

Email us at or call us on 0151 932 6044.

Collection Boxes

Our collection boxes raise vital funds for the hospice from a variety of shops, pubs, clubs and other venues. Every penny really does count. Can you help? We need people to place tins in shops, and also collect our tins when they are full and bring them into the hospice.

Street Collections

If you don't have much time to spare, then street collections are great for raising funds and awareness for St Joseph's Hospice on an ad-hoc basis. Come along and make some new friends, or bring yours with you - the more the merrier!

Email us on to see what collections we have coming up.
