November at St Giles

The countdown to Christmas has begun!

With a national lockdown in place this month, it’s fair to say that Christmas could feel a little bit different this year. So, we’re most definitely in favour of starting the festivities early! Dig out your novelty knits, pour a cup of tea and scroll down to see what festive fun you can still enjoy this month, from the comfort of your own home.

After an incredibly difficult and challenging year for everyone, we have never needed the support of our community more than we do today. However you choose to do so, please continue to support us this festive season. Thank you.

Sign up for Rudolph Run

This fabulous festive fundraiser WILL still go ahead on Sunday 6th December, either at Tamworth Castle or, should guidance change, in your local area!

Buy Christmas cards

Our 2020 Christmas card collection is now available to buy in selected shops and online. Choose from 25 designs, including traditional scenes, local landmarks and more. Give a card that shows you care.

Play our Christmas Raffle*

Our Christmas Raffle is now open! You could win £8,000 or a brand new Kia Picanto – what a welcome start to 2021 that would be after such a difficult year. Every ticket sold helps us continue to provide our vital care services.

*You must be 18 or over to play our raffle. Please gamble responsibly: www.begambleaware.org

Support Katie’s Christmas Appeal

Fundraise your way to help make Christmas Day – the cost of providing our inpatient care on Christmas Day alone is over £16,000. Our Clinical Director, Katie, would love you to support us this festive season and help make Christmas count for our patients and families.

Make a Light up a Life dedication

 Remember a loved one this Christmas by dedicating a light on our virtual Christmas tree. You can also add a special message to our Book of Memories if you make your dedication by 12th November.

You can still shop with us online

Our shops may have closed temporarily, but you can still shop with us on our eBay store this month. You’ll find a treasure trove of gift ideas, collectibles, jewellery and more!

Support Katie’s Appeal

We have never needed you more than we need you today. We are reliant on donations to continue our work and there is a continuing and ever-growing need for our service.

Play our lottery*

Just 13 new lottery players could fund 24 hours of hospice care. For just £1 a week, we have 200 prizes up for grabs – including up to £20,000 in our rollover! You could be our next winner, like Karen above.

*You must be 18 or over to play our lottery. Please gamble responsibly: www.begambleaware.org

Miles 4 St Giles

If you can’t make our Rudolph Run or were due to ride at our cancelled Cycle Autumn last month, why not take on your own sponsored challenge? Clock up some Miles 4 St Giles during the November lockdown, indoors or out by following Government guidance.

Become a regular donor

To give us a little more certainty in this very uncertain time, would you consider giving a regular monthly gift? Your monthly support will make a massive difference.

We’re here for you

If you, or someone you are caring for, is living with an incurable illness, our confidential advice and support line is here to help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 0300 330 9410.

We’ve adapted our bereavement support services to telephone and virtual support. You can reach the team on 01543 434536, Monday to Friday 9am – 4.30pm.

It takes a community to make a hospice. Thank you.
