Our Christmas Fundraising Opportunities

Over the Christmas period we have lots of different fundraising opportunities for you to get involved in and raise money for your local hospice.

Share a Card

Make your greeting, make a donation and make a difference.

At an expensive and busy time of year, why waste money and time writing and posting cards to people who sit next to you, behind you, across from you, next door and down the corridor when you can save money and time by making a donation to support your local hospice.

Sent free of charge to your place of work, our Share a Card is an A3 Christmas poster allowing you to write wonderfully festive messages to everyone in the office, classroom or communal area. All we ask is that you encourage your colleagues to make a donation to the hospice in line with what they would have typically spent on Christmas cards and stamps.

Each Christmas, our Share a Card appeal helps to raise over £1,500 for Dove House Hospice.

To receive your FREE Share a Card poster, please call: 01482 785743 or email our Fundraising team on: fundraising@dovehouse.org.uk and we’ll be happy to pop one in the post or email it to you.


Do something special – card by card. With dontsendmeacard.com, every e-card you send saves time, reduces carbon and helps to support Dove House Hospice. There’s a fantastic range available covering everything from Christmas to birthdays to anniversaries and everything else in between – sending a greeting has never felt better!

Feel great at no extra cost
By giving what you would have spent on cards and stamps, you’re helping the hospice without being out of pocket.

Going paperless

Switching to a friendlier way gives you the peace of mind that you’re no longer using materials and fuel to deliver your special messages.

Total convenience

Stressed about Christmas? Need to say thank you to a large group? Send all of your e-cards in one go or tailor each message and send individually.

Snowball effect

Generate even more for the hospice as your e-card recipients will see that you have given in lieu of cards and can do the same for Dove House Hospice.
