The Big Give Challenge

Help us to renovate one of our patient units to make it more welcoming and fit for purpose.

The Big Give Challenge is back and your donations to St. Joseph’s Hospice through The Big Give will be DOUBLED for one week only, starting at midday on Tuesday 29th November 2022.

As part of The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022, we have set ourselves the challenge of raising £8,600. If we succeed, every penny will be matched. That means that if we reach our target, your donations will be worth at least £17,200!


(Please note: You won't be able to donate until The Big Give Christmas Challenge begins on Tuesday 29th November).

How will your donations benefit St. Joseph's Hospice?

You donation through The Big Give, will help to fund our Improving our Hospice Environment project, enabling us to renovate one of our patients units, create a new nurses’ station closer to patient rooms and convert the surrounding area into a calm, relaxing communal area for patients and families to sit and chat. Raising funds in this way will greatly improve the hospice and our service without adversely affecting the hospice financially.

St Joseph’s Hospice supports around 200 patients every year and their families. Our nurse-led team provide compassionate palliative and end of life care. Our aim is to make patients as comfortable as possible; this starts with an environment that is easy to navigate, calm, pleasant, fit for purpose and meets the needs of both patients, families and staff. Donating to the Big Give Challenge 2022 will improve safety and the quality of care we provide and improve wellbeing for patients and families.

Last year, our Big Give Christmas Challenge project made a huge difference to the hospice as we were able to provide dementia friendly signage and assistive technology equipment throughout the hospice to support patients and visitors with dementia. In 2020, the Big Give Challenge enabled us to create two new patient rooms, increasing our capacity to 31 private patient rooms.

When can I donate?

You can donate from midday on Tuesday 29th November 2022 to midday Tuesday 6th December 2022 by visiting The Big Give to make your donation. If you need help, please call the fundraising team at the hospice on 0151 932 6044.

How are the funds matched?

Once the donation week has ended, all the donations made up to £8,600 will be doubled and the funds sent directly to the hospice. The funds are then matched by local businesses who have pledged match funding and our Big Give Christmas Challenge partner.

A huge thank you from everyone at the hospice.
