By fundraising for us and supporting Forest Holme Hospice, you can help enhance the lives of patients and their families across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck. Whether you choose to organise a bake sale, hold a quiz night, or take on a physical challenge, we are here to support you all the way on your fundraising journey.
1. Choose your challenge
You can organise your own event for family and friends to take part in, you can take on one of our challenges and get sponsored for your efforts or get your workplace or school involved in some fundraising.
Our fundraising pack is full of fundraising hints and tips, safety advice and all the essential information you need to know if you’re planning your own event.
2. Set up a fundraising page
To support you with your fundraising and help you raise as much as possible we recommend using Just Giving – it’s a fast, easy way for people to donate and all the funds come straight to us so there’s no need for you to worry about chasing friends and family for donations. You can set up your fundraising page on JustGiving here: https://www.justgiving.com/friendsofforest
3. Share, share, share
Once you’ve decided how you’re going to fundraise and you’ve set up your fundraising page (or received your sponsorship form!) it’s time to shout about what you are doing to raise money for Forest Holme Hospice. Share with friends and family on social media, email your colleagues at work and don’t forget to share it with us too! Post on our Facebook page or share on Instagram or Twitter using #ForestHolmeFundraising
Other ways to support Forest Holme
Working with Forest Holme Hospice Charity can bring huge benefits to your company and employees whilst also helping to raise vital funds for palliative and end-of-life care across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck.
Small Change Big Difference
Our ‘Small change, Big difference’ collection boxes are an ideal way to collect loose change for Forest Holme. Each year the ‘Small change, Big difference’ appeal has helped pay for daily newspapers for the patients, travel costs for our volunteer Bereavement Counsellors and even a year’s supply of fish food for our pond.
Your small change really does add up and help to fund the ‘small’ things which help to make all the difference to our families. Please contact the fundraising team on 01202 670644 to request a collection box.
Volunteer with us
Volunteer roles at Forest Holme Hospice Charity are varied and there is something for everyone. Whether you can spare an hour, a month, or a couple of days a month, we appreciate all your support as a member of the team.
