Working in partnership
We have been privileged to work on unique partnerships with various departments and individuals in schools.
Most recently, we worked in collaboration with two young pupils from St Edmunds School who hosted an incredible music event which had a range of music from barbershop to jazz and classical in aid of Pilgrims Hospices.
We like to work with all types of groups, from nurseries and primary schools, to secondary and specialist schools
They organised the event with our help and raised a staggering £1,175. We have also recently worked closely with the Raise and Give society at the University of Kent during their RAG week on a RAG Raid at a local supermarket. On a single day, with only eight people in the team, they raised over £300, which is fantastic!
We also have many events throughout the year from moonlight walks to fun runs. Could you get a staff team together to run or walk at one of our events? How about encouraging all the PE teachers to show how fit they are and enter into the spirit of healthy competition in aid of Pilgrims Hospices? Or if you’re doing your International Baccalaureate, then perhaps you’d like to take part in our tri-hospice cycle ride and support us at the same time.
Visit the hospices
Why not arrange for a visit to your local hospice with your pupils, so they can report back to their classmates? Our day hospices are open on Wednesdays and Thursdays when school choirs and music groups are very welcome to visit and give a short concert.
Our Canterbury hospice has a Labyrinth where teachers and pupils are very welcome to take part in a walk with our trained facilitators and learn about the history and benefits of Labyrinths.
Fundraising is a chance for young people to achieve something personal while making a difference to their local community.
