AN innovative fundraising appeal from St Elizabeth Hospice has earmarked Christmas cards as a potential money-spinner.
Although September may seem a little early to be getting into the festive mood, for the hospice it provides a vital part of their fundraising income, which needs to exceed £1million each year for the hospice to be able to continue its services.
A Christmas card leaflet, featuring many local views, is being sent to businesses to tempt them into purchasing the cards. A mail order option is also available for people wishing to purchase the cards.
A Christmas Light Up a Life appeal, which invites people to sponsor a light on a Christmas tree in honour of someone, is also being run. There is an option to hang a gold card candle or star on a tree, which carries a message on the back. Facilities are also available for Christmas events, including parties.
The hospice also collects old foreign currency, old British coins, used postage stamps, laserjet and inkjet cartridges.
For more information on any of the appeals, or to make a donation, call 01473 707015.
