St Gemma’s Hospice to host one-off fundraising appeal where all donations will be instantly doubled

Such a worthy cause.

The Precious Time Appeal will see donors get their support doubled instantly, and it’s taking place this weekend.

This Sunday 21 and Monday 22 April, St Gemma’s Hospice will stage a fundraising event never before seen in Leeds.

The Precious Time Appeal is an online fundraising event taking place over 36 hours, where donors will have their support instantly doubled.

To enable this, the charity has persuaded a group of major donors to provide a pool of matching funds.

The Precious Time Appeal will tell the important story of the incredible care given by St Gemma’s at the end of life. In a specially commissioned film, donors will see how St Gemma’s does everything it can to make this precious time as liveable and special as possible.

The idea of precious time applies to the fundraiser’s 36-hour window, underlining the short time in which donors can get their donation doubled and therefore their impact.

Chief Executive, Kerry Jackson OBE, says: “Demand for palliative care at our hospice and in the community is growing all the time, so St Gemma’s has to do more to sustain the vital care we provide.

“The Precious Time Appeal is a unique opportunity for those who want to
support our work, to get their donation instantly doubled. Thanks to our generous matching fund donors and our champions, I’m confident that this innovative appeal will make a huge difference to patient care at St Gemma’s.”

You can support this incredible campaign by donating as much or as little as you can during the 36-hour period, and encouraging everyone you know to do the same.

St Gemma’s Hospice will be sharing live updates on fundraising progress over the weekend, so make sure to keep up to date with their social media channels here.
