Kick start your Christmas shopping at our fantastic Christmas Market being held on Saturday November 26th at the Hospice.

After a two-year break, it’s back with extra sparkle and the team can’t wait! Open 11am-3pm, you’ll be able to enjoy live entertainment throughout the day whilst you browse and shop the many stalls including food and drink, stocking fillers and gifts, and a tombola. No winter wonderland would be complete without the main man himself, so we’re delighted to welcome Santa to this year’s event. It’s a great way to get your Christmas shopping done all whilst helping raise vital funds for our patients and families.

To help keep this event safe and comfortable for all to attend, we’re asking you to book your tickets in advance if possible so we can monitor attendance. Admission can be paid on the door as well.

We’re very excited to open our doors and to welcome you back to the Hospice. We ho-ho-hope to see you at there!

Gifts that give back

If online shopping is your bag, you can play a part in raising funds for St Oswald’s from the comfort of your home. We have our own online store where you can shop the latest range of gifts, cards and more via our website as well as our eBay store, full of nifty bits and pieces to gift to a loved one or even yourself.

If you’re making a purchase on Amazon, you can activate Amazon Smile and select St Oswald’s Hospice as your chosen charity. Whenever you place an order, we’ll receive a percentage of your total spend and this will go directly to supporting our patients.

For those who prefer to shop in person, why not turn your daily shop into every day magic by signing up to Easy Fundraising? Select St Oswald’s as your chosen charity and whenever you make a purchase from your usual brands, a percentage will be donated back to the Hospice.

We all love a bit of a pamper and a cosy night in, especially as the winter months draw near, and our Body Shop at Home consultant, Helen, has the perfect range of gifts and stocking fillers available. With an amazing 20% of all sales being gifted back to the Hospice, you can relax and know you’re supporting the wonderful work of the Hospice.

If you’d prefer to escape a little further afield, we’ve got a great offer from our friends at DFDS Seaways. Set sail to Amsterdam and enjoy a culture-packed mini-cruise with friends or loved ones. For every booking made up until the end of January 2023, St Oswald’s will receive a fantastic £15 that will go towards supporting families at the Hospice.

Shop local

Last but by no means least, we have our brilliant local stores across the region and they’re full of great gifting ideas and our friendly volunteer staff are on hand to help too. With 23 stores to choose from, you can support your local community and the work of St Oswald’s Hospice when shopping at one of our locations.

Happy shopping!
