Share a Christmas e-card

A Christmas card may only last a few weeks, but your donations could leave a legacy for a long time to come

Let us take the stress out of Christmas with our animated e-card.

Instead of handwriting lots of Christmas cards this year to your friends and families, why not make a donation to St Oswald's Hospice and share our animated e-card.

By sharing our e-card, you're helping to save the planet by using less cards, saving money with no postage fees, but most of all, you're helping to support a local charity making a difference to babies, children and young adults and adults with life-limiting conditions in the North East and their families.

Spread the cheer this festive season with our corporate Christmas e-card

We're offering a bespoke company Christmas e-card personalised to your business, where we can add your company logo and a personalised message, which you can purchase online for a minimum donation of £100. Our Christmas e-card is a quick and easy way to spread the festive cheer through email to all of your colleagues, customers and suppliers. Our Christmas e-card could save your business time and money and improve your companies CSR activities, whilst being environmentally friendly.

With your help last year, Share a Card raised over £9000 to support our vital work in the region

By taking part, you can make our Christmas even more magical in 2019.

Your donations will ensure we can buy ingredients to bake Christmas cookies, supply twinkling lights and colourful tinsel to decorate the Hospice and provide arts and craft materials so the patients and children can make cards for their families.

I got one of these, just wanted to say it is lovely, it's so easy to share and people I have sent it to have loved it and think it's a great idea!

What does our Christmas e-card look like?

Our 2019 Christmas e-card has been designed by our wonderful patients and volunteers at our Focus on Living Centre who have been busy in the craft room getting into the Christmas spirit. Brenda, Eileen and Jessica have been trying new techniques and using different materials to create this winter wonderland scene.

To make your card more personalised, you can add your name and a message into the e-card.

Add Gift Aid at no extra cost to yourself

I want to gift aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to St Oswald’s Hospice. Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Please notify St Oswald’s if you want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
