We understand how difficult it can be for schools to decide which charities to support. At Helen & Douglas House we believe that by being actively involved with a school, students are able to gain a better knowledge of the charity they are supporting, as well as a deeper understanding of how they can help to make a difference to the lives of others.
Why choose Helen & Douglas House?
|Helen House was the world’s first children’s hospice, and Douglas House was the first hospice in the world for teenagers and young adults. We provide a vibrant and positive environment where children live life to the full, and the whole family is supported.|
|Our fundraising team can support you in all areas of your fundraising. You can contact us by email or by calling 01865 799150.|
|We can provide speakers for school assemblies and fundraising events, as well as to groups such as the School Council. All talks are delivered in a sensitive way and are tailored to suit the age of the students.|
How you can support us
Schools choose to support us in different ways. Some may choose to raise money for us with a one-off event, such a sponsored walk; while others will select us as their Charity of the Year. Some schools prefer to develop a long-term partnership with us to enable the whole school community to build strong and positive links with us over a number of years. However your school operates, there will be a fundraising opportunity somewhere!
