All you have to do is set up your page, and share it with people you know who may like to support you and donate. Posting it on your social media channels is a good place to start!

If you require assistance in setting up your fundraising page, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to help. Call us on 01279 773750 or email fund@stclarehospice.org.uk
