We’re supporting nine local hospices between March and June to raise vital funds to support their work with people with life limiting illnesses.

Hospices are much more than a place to die. From spending time on an art project, having complimentary therapy to ease pain or having a laugh at a time when they never thought they would, they’re about helping patients live for each moment.

It’s often thought that people with life limiting illnesses simply go to hospices to die, however each person, illness and situation is unique. People are priority, and we can help support them.

The charities we’ve picked open their doors to people across Lincolnshire, Nottingham and Yorkshire who require palliative and end of life care. 

Here’s more about what we’ve got planned during the next few months…

To launch this Community Champions quarter, people booking trips through our 13 travel branches are being asked to donate £1 to the pot. 

It's a great way to do some good whilst treating themselves!

Colour runs are being held by St Barnabas and Saint Catherine’s Hospice to raise even more money for their causes. Our staff will be at both fun-filled events to offer their support. 

St Barnabas Colour Dash, Lincolnshire Showground on Saturday 13th May at 11am.

Colour the Coast, Filey Beach Scarborough on Sunday 14th May at 11am.

You can sign up to take part in the Colour Dash here and Colour the Coast here

Colleagues across the business will be taking part in a sponsored pedometer challenge, aiming to collectively walk 10,000 miles and raise £10,000 between Monday 1st to Sunday 21st May.

We'll make a donation to these hospices every time you shop with us using your dividend card. 

We'll also run staff fundraising events and give the proceeds from the carrier bag levy to these groups during March, April and May. 

The organisations we’re supporting from Sunday 5th March to Saturday 3rd June are:

  • St Barnabas Hospice, Louth, Lincoln, Grantham, Spalding and Gainsborough 
  • Beaumond House Hospice, Newark 
  • Butterfly Hospice, Boston
  • St Andrew’s Hospice, Grimsby
  • Bassetlaw Hospice, Retford
  • Lindsey Lodge Hospice, Scunthorpe 
  • St Catherine’s Hospice, Scarborough
  • Norfolk Hospice, Kings Lynn 
  • Dove House Hospice, Hull
