Giving Tuesday

Make Christmas come early for St John's by helping us raise £3000 in 24 hours!

Please support YOUR local hospice for Giving Tuesday! 

Our target of £3000 would be enough to support a patient and their family with Hospice at Home visits in their own home throughout the whole of December. Being at home where you feel safe and secure is especially important around the Christmas season. The care, compassion and support provided by our Hospice at Home service makes this possible. 

We’ve selected a range of gifts you can donate the cost of this Giving Tuesday – or you can choose your own unique gift amount. 

Whatever you can give St John's Hospice this Christmas Season, Thank you.

Gift Aid for St John’s Hospice

Gift Aid adds 25% in value to any donation you make to St John’s Hospice. These much needed funds are already helping us to provide care and support for patients and their families in your local area. If you are a UK taxpayer and the donation is your own money (not from a collection, in return for goods or from a business), St John’s Hospice can claim from HMRC an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, therefore increasing your donation by 25%!

By ticking the above box, you are confirming that you want to Gift Aid your donation and any donations you make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to St John's Hospice, Lancaster. You are confirming that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year, it is your responsibility to pay any difference. You understand that Gift Aid is reclaimed by St John’s Hospice from the tax you pay to the current tax year. For more information, please go to
