School Visit

Would your school like to learn more about what our Hospice does in your local community?

We would love to visit you and give an assembly or speak to a group. We can tailor our support to fit your curriculum and interests and we’d love to hear your ideas on how as a school, you could fundraise for us.

To organise a visit please call Cathy on 01434 606 444.

Mini and Junior Great North Run

The 2019 Mini and Junior Great North Run takes place on Saturday, 7 September.  Both races take place on the NewcastleGateshead Quayside.

The Mini Great North Run is open to youngsters aged 3-8 and is a 1.5km toddle/run.  The Junior Great North run is open to youngsters aged 9-16 and is a 4km run.

This year the Great Run Company haven’t allocated places to charities to sell to their supporters so if you would like a place you need to buy it directly from them.  If your child would like to take part this year in support of Tynedale Hospice at Home, we recommend that you sign up for the reminder service which will notify you when places become available.

Please let us know when you sign up and we will send out a pack with fundraising hints and tips and we’ll support your child every step of the way…

When your child joins our Junior Great Run team, they will receive: 

  • A fundraising pack including sponsor forms, fundraising ideas and hints and tips about training
  • A T-Shirt with our logo which your child can customise with their own design and colours
  • Support on the day of the run
  • A fun training session prior to the event

We ask our runners to aim to raise a minimum target of £70.  This is just a guide and many team members raise a lot more!!

We will be on hand at the event on 7 September to support and encourage the Tynedale Hospice Junior Team.  If you would like any more information, or would like to be contacted when the entries are open, please get in touch on 01434 606 444 or fundraising@tynedalehospice.com.

Host a Big Bake

Teachers and children alike love cake! Why not take the opportunity to support the Big Tynedale Bake by hosting your own bake sale or baking competition. What about hosting a coffee morning for parents or challenging staff to a bake-off in the staff room?

Perfect for all ages, the Big Bake is a great way to raise funds for your local Hospice and have fun at the same time. We can supply you with a special Big Bake fundraising pack and we’d love to come along on the day and help.

To request your Big Bake fundraising pack or further support please call our fundraising team on 01434 606 444 or email fundraising@tynedalehospice.com.

Host your own fundraiser

There are plenty of other ideas for supporting Tynedale Hospice. They could include:

  • Sponsored walk or skip
  • A non uniform day – dress in Rainbow colours!
  • Sports day
  • School concert or fashion show
  • Teacher challenge

We’d love to hear your ideas and be there to support you every step of the way.
