September at St Giles

Thank you so much for making a difference, keep going this autumn

This month not only marks the start of a new season, it also marks six months since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.

Thoughout this difficult and uncertain time, you have supported our vital work and helped us continue to provide our care for local people and their families living with a terminal illness. Thank you so much.

We still need your help, now more than ever. However you choose to do so, please continue to support us this September.

Sign up for Cycle Autumn

Despite the cancellation of our Spring Cycle, our annual Autumn event, Cycle Autumn will go ahead – but with a difference. The event will take place over the weekend of 17th-18th October with a number of safety measures in place.

Support second-hand September

This month we’re asking you to join in Second-hand September – instead of buying new when updating your autumn wardrobe, go along and pick up a pre-loved bargain from your local St Giles shop.

Join 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!*

 

Christmas cards now on sale

Our 2020 Christmas card collection is now available to buy in selected shops and online. It may only be September, but the big day will be here before you know it. Choose from 25 festive designs.

Still time for Mini Miles

Even though your kind-hearted kids are heading back to school this month, they still have time to clock up some mini-miles! Will they hop, skip and jump or bike, scoot and bug hunt to help St Giles over 7 days?

Donate your Plate!

Dine, Donate and Nominate! Simply dine in (or out!) and share a picture of your plate on social media, donate £5 and nominate 5 others to do the same!

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.

Donate in memory

If you are looking for a special way to remember a loved one, keep their memory alive whilst helping us provide our care and make a donation in their memory.

We’re here for you

We understand that at the current time, there’s a heightened level of anxiety for families due to social distancing and isolation. Therefore, 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. Outside of these hours, our 24/7 advice and support line is here to help on 0300 330 9410.

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