The Big Give 2023
Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, Beaumond House secured an amazing £11,403.75 (including Gift Aid) in the Big Give Christmas Challenge last year, and we need your help to raise even more vital funds for your local hospice in 2023.
The challenge launches on the 28th November, #GivingTuesday, and will be live for seven days. Every donation made to our campaign from 28th November to 5th December 2023 will be doubled.
If you were thinking of making a donation to Beaumond House this year, there is no better time to consider this as a way to double your donation and your impact on the hospice.
How it works
We have received pledges for funding from local businesses which will be used to match your donations. We have also secured Champion Funding from The Hospital Saturday Fund. However we will only receive these pledges if you donate. For every £1 you donate another £1 will be added to our fundraising pot. One Donation, twice the impact!
Tell others that you have donated by sharing our Christmas Challenge, social media content and use the hashtag #ChristmasChallenge23 in your post.
All donations must be made on The Big Give platform between 12 noon on Tuesday 28th November and 12 noon on Tuesday 5th December 2023.

What your donation could support
‘The Loneliness of Diagnosis’
The project ‘The Loneliness of Diagnosis’ highlights the feelings that many of our patients and their carers and family members face. A terminal diagnosis for many causes friends to disappear, doors close, seclusion and solitude set in.
At Beaumond House, we know that almost a quarter of our current caseload of patients live alone. However, feelings of loneliness and isolation are not restricted to the patient. These feelings can extend to family members and carers of individuals with a life-limiting illness. Loneliness impacts upon both mental and physical health considerably compromising the immune system.
With your help, we want to raise £12,500 in just one week, to help combat loneliness in patients and their carers and family members by providing a range of services encouraging interaction, socialisation, and connection.
The campaign aims to enable us to provide our free Day Therapy service, provide transport, activities, and a nutritious home-cooked meal five days a week through the winter months. The provision extends to carers and family members through support groups and Wellbeing services.
Chris (below) is the son of one of our patients. This is Chris’s story.
Donating to the Big Give 2023 Christmas Challenge will enable Beaumond House Hospice Care to care for patients, and support carers and family members like Chris, following a terminal diagnosis, when every moment matters.
