Southern Area Hospice Services are calling on the local community to get behind their ‘Big Bucket Collection’ which takes place in towns and villages throughout the Southern Trust Area.
Next year’s Big Bucket Collection will take place on Friday 22nd March 2024.
On this date, collections will take place in numerous locations and volunteers are needed to help make the collection a ‘Big’ success.
In 2019, the Hospice had received such an overwhelming level of support from the community that it is now an annual event in our fundraising calendar. In 2023 our annual Big Bucket collection raised £29,177.40!
Our aim is to fundraise £30,000 in one day, to help continue providing specialist palliative care and support to people living in the Southern Trust Area.
Could you and your family, friends or work colleagues come together to volunteer at one of our collections?
Southern Area Hospice are looking for volunteers in various locations throughout these areas: Armagh, Banbridge, Camlough, Crossmaglen, Dungannon, Moy, Coalisland, Kilkeel, Annalong, Lurgan, Newry, Portadown, Rathfriland, Rostrevor and Warrenpoint.
The Hospice are also calling for shops and businesses to get involved by taking a Hospice bucket to display in their store, workplace or school on the week leading up to the collection to help raise funds.
