Fundraising supports everything we do.

If you're looking to get involved with Bedford Daycare Hospice then you've come to the right place!

There are now more ways than ever to show your
support for your local hospice. By doing something
you can help us continue caring for our patients and
their families. As an independent charity, Bedford
Daycare Hospice relies on financial support from
the local community to continue its vital work.
Fundraising
Fundraising is one of our core activities as only one fifth of our income comes from NHS sources. Funds come in from gifts, corporate donations and legacies plus regular and special planned events. We have a dedicated team of fundraisers and we rely heavily on our wonderful team of valued volunteers who assist us in raising money on a regular basis.
We aim to reach out to our local community, residents, retail premises, big companies and other charitable organisations to involve them with our fundraising; raising awareness of our objectives and helping them to gain recognition in the community. Some recent events have included:  
 Charity Ball at the Bedford School
 ‘Indian Summer’ evening meal
 B2Sea Bedford Boys School boys rowing event
 ‘Rumble in the Jumble’ Sale
Golf Day
This is in addition to regular coffee mornings, fashion shows, ‘pampering’ and quiz evenings plus many more fun events. We have also recently started an ‘Afternoon Tea’ offer to groups of ladies on a Wednesday to include a personal shopping experience.
Supporters of the Hospice
Last year we raised £180K directly as a result of fundraising activities. This year we are aiming to raise 260K, of which 80K is needed to fund the Hospice Extension plan. This will enable us to take in and care for more patients and allow us to do even more in-house fundraising events.
We would welcome even more volunteers to assist with our expanding activities. As little as one hour per month can be extremely useful and add to the whole hospice experience.
There are hundreds of ways you can support our fundraising efforts! If you feel you are able to help please call us on 01234 352015 or pop in as we have some great advice on fundraising. We will be delighted to hear from you.
Your support really does make a difference.
Every penny counts!
