Fundraise for Us

Welcome to "Team Lakelands" Community Fundraising Team

We can’t wait to hear from you and support you in fundraising for our amazing hospice. Get started by giving our Community Fundraiser, Marina, a call on 01536 747755 or emailing marinarae@lakelandshospice.org.uk

Whatever your question this is where you will find out how you can support Lakelands and become part of the special group of fundraisers raising money to care for families across the Corby Borough living with the effects of a life limiting illness.

We will work together to find out how you want to support the hospice. Whether you want to organise a fundraising event, set yourself a challenge or if you just want to learn more about the hospice we are here to help and support you.

 

Why Choose Lakelands

At Lakelands Hospice we are committed to being here, and ready to care for local people living with cancer, heart failure and other life limiting illnesses.

When fundraising for Lakelands the money you raise will be contributing towards the £525,000 it costs to provide these vital services to those in need in our local community.

 

Your fundraising will help pay for these typical services listed below that we provide to our patients at no cost to themselves or their family.

£30 A session of Alternative Therapy

£70 One day attending our Day Care Hospice

£150  An activity day for the patients

£239    An overnight “Hospice at Home” care

Giving in Celebration

Giving a gift in celebration is a positive and unique way of celebrating a special occasion while supporting Lakelands Hospice and making a difference to other people’s lives in our community. Rather than receiving presents at your event you can ask guests to donate to the hospice instead.

 JustGiving Page

Supporters often like to set up a JustGiving page to mark their special occasion and send links to friends & family requesting donations instead of birthday or anniversary gifts. Friends & Family will be able to donate securely with their debit / credit cards and leave a personal message.

 Weddings

We find that wedding couples quite often have already a fully furnished home and do not require the usual wedding gift list. Setting up a JustGiving page for friends & family to donate in celebration of your big day is quick and easy. One lovely couple Carrie and Gareth did just that and raised £660.

If you are planning a wedding and wish to support our charity in some way, then please do contact the fundraising team for a chat about celebration donation envelopes and charity related favours.
