Donate an Hour of Pay

Tuesday 24 October 2023 - Sunday 31 December 2023

Make your last hour of the working year go further for local hospice care.

This Christmas, before you set your out of office for the festive break, we are asking you to donate an hour of pay to make a big difference in the lives of those under our care.

By donating your last hour of pay, you will be helping patients and their families make the most of their time together this Christmas, creating special memories they can cherish forever.

Whether this is in the one of our inpatient units or in the community, you will be part of the reason we are here, caring for those who need us, now and in the future.

Make your gift go further

As a company

Could your company pledge to match the donations of your employees?

We'll record the company name of every donation received so that we can share your business's grand total with you in the New Year.

Whether it's £50 or £500, you can make the contributions of your colleagues go further for hospice care by pledging to match the total amount given by your workforce.


As an individual

Gift aid: Make your personal donation go further by remembering to add Gift Aid it. For every £1 you donate, Pilgrims will be able to claim an extra 25p from the government through the Gift Aid scheme!

When you think that a £20 donation could turn into £25 with Gift Aid, it's easy to see how much Gift Aid can make a difference.

How your donation helps Pilgrims deliver care

£10 could pay for a patient's meals for the day in one of our inpatient units so they can enjoy all the Christmas trimmings with their loved ones.

£15 could provide a complementary therapy session for a patient, relieving their anxiety.
