‘It could be your son, daughter, niece, nephew or grandchildren who needs vital support from Helen & Douglas House and without regular donations, they may not have the support they need, when they need it.’ Mary, Jack’s Mum.
Set up a regular donation to Helen & Douglas House, so we can help more families like Jack’s
Jack first came to Helen & Douglas House after suffering from severe brain damage from being starved of oxygen after being born six weeks early. At a frightening and uncertain time for his family, the hospice greeted them with warmth and care and gave them the confidence to deal with Jack’s needs. Nearly five years on, the hospice gives the family the chance to recharge and spend time together. By setting up a regular gift to us, we can plan ahead better to help to continue to support families just like Jack’s. Whether it be monthly, quarterly or yearly, you can set up a regular donation from just £5.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org, call the fundraising team on 01865 799150, or download our regular giving form. If you’d like to visit and see how your support is making a difference, please get in touch. We’d love to show you around on one of our regular supporter tours.
See what a difference your gift could make:
- Carers: Giving £10 a month for a year could pay for a carer for one day. This means our children can enjoy activities that they wouldn’t normally be able to.
- Play therapy: Giving £12 a month over one year could provide four sessions with a Play Therapist, helping our children to relax, socialise and enjoy their time staying with us.
- Doctors’ care: Giving £15 a month over one year could pay for a doctor for four hours, helping our children be as well as they can while staying at the hospice.
- Bereavement counselling: Giving £20 a month for a year could pay for five bereavement counselling sessions for parents who’ve just suffered the heartbreak of losing a child.
Why are regular gifts better rather than one-off donations?
This year, we rely on the kind support of our regular donors to raise £3.6m to fund the care our families depend on, and every donation makes a huge difference to each and every family going through the toughest times imaginable. Giving a small amount on an ongoing basis allows us to plan ahead so that we can give our families the long-term care they need. It also means we can be confident that we’ll be able to continue this important work for years to come.
For every £1 received of statutory money, the charity itself generates a further £6 of income from voluntary donations, representing significant return on investment for the state.
