Share a card to show you care this Christmas

If writing out cards is more of a nightmare before Christmas than a festive favourite, let us take the stress away and give you a way to show your support of St Oswald’s Hospice.  With a little help from the children who use the Hospice for short breaks and respite, we’ve created a beautiful festive card available in a digital and hard copy format which you can share to show you care this Christmas.

Our e-card the perfect way to spread season’s greetings, without the need to queue up at the post office. Designed by some of the children who use our Children and Young Adults Service for short breaks and respite, the colourful card features animated Gingerbread people waving against a snowy backdrop. For a donation of just £10, you’ll receive the e-card, which can be personalised with your own message. You’ll receive a  digital pack including social media graphics and frames featuring the artwork, so you can spread goodwill across your digital platforms.

All funds raised from the Christmas company e-card will support the families who rely on St Oswald’s Hospice and help the staff to create magical memories and special moments for the young people during their stay.

For the traditionalists amongst you, our printed Share a Card is the ideal way to get into the festive spirit and spead some joy to your group of friends or colleagues. We’ll send you an A4 printed card and your group can fill it with christmas messages. You’ll then display it in a prominent place for all to see and donate the money you’d have spent on cards and postage to St Oswald’s as a Christmas gift to our patients and families. The Share a Card bares the same lovely design, created by Isobel, Keira, and Sophie from our Children’s Service.

Anita Ball, Director of Income and Marketing, said


We think our card is a great way to shout about your support of St Oswald’s, all while making a huge difference to the lives of our youngest patients at this special time of year. Thanks to Isobel, Keira, and Sophie for designing our card so beautifully.
