The 50/10 Club is part of our Brick by Brick Appeal to build a new hospice for the people of Glasgow.
This initiative aims to secure 50 businesses, each of which will raise £10,000 to sponsor the wonderful atrium in our new home, which will be at the heart of our state of the art building.
Arriving at any new place for the first time can be daunting and emotions around the first visit to a hospice for patients and their loved ones are considerable.
Our atrium will offer visitors a welcoming and comfortable, yet practical environment, designed to create a sense of home for patients and their families.
Companies can choose how they wish to raise the £10,000, with many taking the opportunity to engage staff and customers, and address their corporate social responsibility policy.
Fundraising can be varied, from staff participating in a variety of hospice run events, including cycling, running and walking challenges, to events organised by your own team, such as bake sales, office dress down and up days, and race nights.
Take a look at our fundraising section to see how others have raised money on our behalf and check out our tips and ideas for further inspiration.
Several of our partnership companies have been so successful with their fundraising that they have already exceeded their £10,000 target, and are continuing to fundraise for us, while others have helped by introducing us to potential new 50/10 Club members. Companies have also reached their targets by matching the total amount their staff raised, adding to their final fundraising totals.
The new hospice will not only allow us to enhance our current services but will also enable us to extend our care to young people aged from 16 years.
In addition to our Brick by Brick Appeal for the new hospice, we continue to fundraise for the £3.1 million we need each year to keep our hospice doors open to the people of Glasgow.
All of our patients are treated free of charge, regardless of their financial circumstances, and while there is great support from the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board, which currently provides £1.9million a year, we need to generate the remaining funds from voluntary donations so that we can deliver our services and care programmes.
Thank you for your continued support.
