Fundraising for Trinity Hospice

TrinityThe compassion provided by the team at Trinity Hospice to patients at the end of their lives and children with life-limiting conditions is, for those who have witnessed its benefits, beyond monetary worth.  Each year, however, the fundraising team at Trinity are tasked with finding £4.5 million to keep its services running.  Fortunately, they’re a creative bunch and there are a number of ways in which the hospice raises these funds.

The Trinity Lottery gives away £1,500 every week and is a simple way to give a little each week.  One off donations are always welcome and there are Trinity Shops across the Fylde Coast.  The shop on Talbot Road now boasts a range of shabby chic upscaled furniture and all of the shops are heaven for lovers of vintage, bargain paperbacks and unusual gifts.

There’s no shortage of people willing to give up their time to raise money for Trinity in entertaining and innovative ways.  Here is a selection of the events scheduled over the next ten days:
