Thank you for your support. Without the help of our local community we would not be able to meet the £800,000 a year to provide our services. We must raise more than 90% of our funding from fundraising, charitable donations and legacies. You make all the difference!

How can my school help?

We are delighted to be working with many schools across Tynedale, West Northumberland and Ponteland who have been helping us to raise much needed funds.

If your school would like to hear more about the work of the Hospice then we would be delighted to come in and speak at an assembly or to a small group of pupils. There are plenty of ways to support us including the Junior Great North Run, giving a home to our cute Pen Pal pens or Christmas cuddly toys or by hosting a fundraiser of your own in school.

We would love to work with your school. For more information and inspiration on how you can support us please click below.

Events and Campaigns

The Big Tynedale Bake

Do you enjoy baking or love to eat homemade goodies?  Whatever tickles your tastebuds – whether it’s sweet or savoury – our Big Tynedale Bake is the perfect way to help raise some ‘dough’ for Tynedale Hospice at Home.  So if you think that you might be the next Mary Berry, or if you are simply looking for a great reason to get friends and family together then we are inviting you to rise to the challenge and host your very own Big Bake in aid of Tynedale Hospice at Home.

This could be a coffee morning, afternoon tea, bake sale, pie and peas supper, a bake-off or, if you are whizz in the kitchen then you could even sell cakes and donate the sales to Tynedale Hospice. Whatever your idea, we can help you and make sure that your event rises to the occasion.

Annual Raffle 2019

We have combined our Spring and Winter raffles into one Annual Raffle extravaganza which we hope will raise £10,000 to support Tynedale Hospice at Home. Tickets are priced at just £1, with a chance to win three great prizes!

Light up a Life 2019

This Christmas Light up a Life and remember someone special by making a donation to our annual Light up a Life campaign and by attending one of three Light up a Life services.   Everyone is welcome to attend these services – you don’t have to have been touched by our hospice care to attend.

Donate in Memory

Many people choose to remember those important to them by making a donation in their memory to Tynedale Hospice at Home.

Donations could be in memory of a loved one, friend or colleague who might have used Tynedale Hospice at Home’s services or in some cases, donations are made even if they have not had a direct connection to our Hospice. Every donation we receive will help us to continue to care and support children, adults and families in our community in times of great need.

We are here to support you however you choose to give in memory of someone special.

Funeral Collections

Families of people who have received care from Tynedale Hospice at Home, or who simply hold the charity close to their hearts, often choose for donations to be made at the funeral of their loved one, rather than receive flowers.

We can provide donation envelopes to use at the funeral to support these wishes.

Tribute Fund

If you would like to remember the life of someone you love, you might consider setting up a tribute fund.

You can start your fund using donations from a funeral collection and when you open a fund you make a commitment to raise funds for Tynedale Hospice at Home for over one year or more.

Gift in Memory

Celebrate your loved one’s memory with a donation or regular gift to Tynedale Hospice at Home.

A donation in memory is a special way to celebrate someone’s life. Your gift will directly support the work of Tynedale Hospice at Home and will help us to provide care and support to those in the community each year.

Leave a Legacy

Invest in the future of Tynedale Hospice at Home by remembering us in your will. The Gifts in will range from 1% of an estate to 100%, or anything left over after other gifts have been made.

Legacy gifts in Wills can make a vital difference to Tynedale Hospice at Home and you can be assured that we will use your gifts to care and support families at some of the most difficult times of their lives.

Host Your Own Fundraiser

With more than 90% of our funds reliant on charitable donations and fundraising, your help really does make a big difference!

Could you organise an event for the Hospice? Dinner parties, coffee mornings, race nights, fashion shows, quiz nights, football tournaments – there are so many ideas and ways that you can help! We would love to help make your idea a reality and we can be there to provide buckets, posters, tickets, t-shirts, prizes and we’ll also promote your event in our monthly ‘What’s On’ guide.

Tell us about your event or speak to us about your ideas today by calling 01434 606 444 or email

People have been so generous and it made every step worth it to know that we’re raising valuable funds for such an excellent local cause.

When I heard about the Nepal Trek I knew it would be fantastic way to do something in mum’s memory.  It was beyond my wildest dreams that I would take part in something like this.   I can’t pretend it will be easy as I’ve never done anything like this before, and I’ll need to train hard.  The most important thing though, is that it will enable me to give something back to the Hospice.  Being able to raise funds which allow other families to benefit from this amazing care will mean so much to me.

DianaCompleting a trek in Nepal for the Hospice

I am very aware what a lifeline the Hospice is to people who need end of life care and the other vital services they offer.  Knowing that I’m raising funds that will make a real difference to people in my local community is a huge motivating factor and I want to raise as much money as possible.

ThomasRan the Mad March Mare

Working for a Hospice that benefits people in my community really does mean a lot to me and it’s one of the main reasons I became a volunteer here.  The Hospice makes a real difference to people I know, my friends, my neighbours, people I’ve worked with.  It’s so important to support organisations in your community, you never know when you might need these services too.
