Schools, Colleges and Universities

Young people have an important part to play in supporting Cynthia Spencer Hospice and we really value our relationships with schools, colleges and universities within our community.

Fundraising for the hospice is a brilliant way to bring your organisation together and also teaches students about the importance of helping others.

Although hospice care may not seem like a subject suitable for students, our range of materials, resources and activities are designed to help start conversations with students from all age groups.

There are many ways in which you can support us, including making us your Charity of the Year or our fundraising team coming into your organisation to give you an insight into the work we do at the hospice, whether this be a small class, whole school assembly or a lecture.

Here are the ways your organisation can get involved!

Student Enterprise Challenge

What could your school turn £10 in to?

We are launching our Student Enterprise Challenge, sponsored by Starting Off and Franklins Solicitors LLP. Quite simply, we will provide groups in schools, colleges or universities with £10 and students can decide how they will use that £10 to raise more money for the hospice.

The challenge is completely flexible – pitch it at any level you wish and have as many teams or year groups competing as you like. Your whole school, college or university can take part or you can pitch year groups, classes or houses against each other. You can also choose when your school takes part e.g. over a half term or full term.

Hear one of our sponsors, Starting Off, talking about why they're supporting the challenge and how it will help up-skill young people for the job market.

All we ask is that we get at least our original £10s back at the end – and that you all have fun taking part in the Student Enterprise Challenge!

Your students will develop budgeting, procurement and sales skills whilst building confidence and understanding of money and mathematical skills. Encourage creativity, inspire team work and develop citizenship skills.
