Fundraising groups run regular events such as coffee mornings and bake sales as well as larger scale events such fashion shows and dinner dances. The large area that Saint Catherine’s work covers offers ample opportunities for new groups and new ideas.

Fundraising Groups are made up entirely of volunteers. A Fundraising Group can be a group of friends who want to fundraise, or people who come together with the same passion for supporting the Hospice.
