Making positive plans for Christmas to help add some sparkle and joy to 2020
We all need something to look forward to after a challenging start to 2020 and we are hoping that we can help provide this. Everyone has been affected in one way or another and that's why we have been determined to find new ways to come together as a community and celebrate Christmas whilst also meeting the safety restrictions of social distancing and other Government guidance.
The Reindeer Run and Wear Your Woollies Day are both designed to be flexible, allowing you, and us, to adapt to the circumstances at the time.
Springhill’s Reindeer Run provides a fun festive activity for children (and staff) to get involved in and enjoy, giving us all something to smile about this Christmas.
Find out how you can take part in your own Reindeer Run by visiting www.springhill.org.uk/reindeer
Wear your Woollies
This is a real winter warmer to add something special to your Christmas festivities with a chance to wear your favourite woollies for Springhill Hospice.

Arrangements can be made with schools interested in utilising any support or information from the Hospice. We are always pleased to visit, to talk in assembly or with a particular year group, celebrate the achievements of your children and to get involved with school events or support areas of the curriculum. If that proves to be possible in some way – even remotely - then please get in touch.
If you are interested in arranging a school visit please email email@example.com or ring 01706 641790 (opt 1) and our Community Support Fundraiser will make contact with you.
Working together to support each other
Every year, schools get involved in raising money and supporting worthwhile causes and by choosing Springhill Hospice you will be helping local families in our communities to receive the care and support they need when someone has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
Your support for the Hospice not only provides much needed funding or practical help but it is valued in schools for the opportunity it gives to help children and young people develop their own skills in a number of ways and an understanding of the communities in which they live.
There are many ways we can help support schools in doing this. With our specially designed range of support materials and fundraising activities we will make sure that this is interesting and engaging and that your fundraising activities are fun and accessible to all.
