Raffles: Five easy ways to support Pilgrims

There are lots of ways you can fundraise for Pilgrims Hospices – from taking on an event or challenge, to volunteering or donating. But there are also other, surprisingly easy ways to fundraise day-to-day.

Theresa Samworth, Pilgrims Fundraising Manager, shares four unique initiatives that can help you help Pilgrims.

Did you know that you can support Pilgrims anywhere, at any time? Whether you’re out and about or cosied up at home, raising vital funds for hospice care in east Kent is easy.

By making the most of the following schemes, you can help Pilgrims to care for patients and their families.


Whenever you shop online, you could be giving a free donation to Pilgrims. Whether you’re buying your weekly shop or a holiday, there are 3,000 retailers on board ready to make a donation. These include Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, Trainline and Sainsbury’s.

It won’t cost you a penny extra and it’s really simple.

Give as you Live

Shop online via Give as you Live at more than 4,000 top retailers – including Tesco, eBay, Marks & Spencer and Expedia – and a free donation will be made to Pilgrims at no cost to you.

Plus, you can also access top offers. You’ll save money and raise money at the same time.

Do you own a vehicle you’d like to sell or scrap? If so, you can donate it to Pilgrims through Giveacar, a non-profit organisation that raises money for UK charities by selling and scrapping old cars.

Giveacar provide a free nationwide service which:

  • Arranges collection of your vehicle from your home
  • Depending on its age and condition, either sends it to auction or recycles it at an Authorised Treatment Facility.

Scrap donations raise around £100 (depending on the price of metal), while auction cars can raise much more.

You can choose to donate all of the value of your car to Pilgrims, or donate half and keep the rest.

To arrange collection of a car, visit or call 020 7736 4242 and quote Pilgrims Hospices as your preferred charity.

Each year Pilgrims supports hundreds of local people coping with a life-limiting illness, and their families. If you talk to us earlier we can do so much more.
