It costs more than £4.7m per year to run every element of Katharine House Hospice.

We only receive a third of this funding from the NHS and so we rely on our local community to help raise money to fund our hospice. We need to raise £13,000 each and every day to fund the hospice.

You’ve agreed to raise a minimum of £30 sponsorship. Here’s how to reach and beat your target …

Set up your JustGiving online fundraising page

Make sure you select the Santa Fun Run as your event. Remember to also personalise your page with a photograph of you or the person you are running (or walking) in memory of - and if you have a story to tell, your supporters would love to hear it. 

To give you more ideas, here are links to some great fundraising pages from our supporters:

If you need a hand to set up your page, read our tips for setting up your own JustGiving fundraising page.

Set up your JustGiving page tips

Now share the link everywhere! – make it fun, make it personal. 

  • Share on your emails, by text and on social media.
  • Tell your story; make it personal and interesting to touch the hearts of the people you know.
  • And remember to tag us into your posts on social media. We may then repost to share your event.

Post regularly on JustGiving and social media

Think about including:

  • your training
  • your fundraising,
  • a sneaky preview of your fancy dress outfit.

Everything helps to get people rooting for you and engaged in what you’re doing. 

Make it fun, make it heart felt, and be sure to include the link to your fundraising page on every post.

Social media posts

We look forward to seeing what you share as you get into your Santa Fun Run stride.
