Prospect Hospice has been part of the Swindon community for over 40 years, caring for local people at the end of their lives. As a charity, we rely on the generous donations of the public to help us raise the vital funds we need to ensure everyone is offered our outstanding care free of charge.
Find out about the range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These delivered free of charge and are designed to provide compassionate, personalised support during every stage of a life-limiting illness in every kind of care setting, to anyone who needs it.
We couldn’t do what we do without considerable support from our local community. Find out all the different ways in which you can support Prospect Hospice, including fundraising, volunteering and purchasing from our shops. All contributions are greatly appreciated and enables us to deliver care that is free of charge to our patients and their families.
Whether shopping with us in person or online, or donating your pre-loved goods, we thank you for supporting us through our shops where you help to raise around £2million a year for Prospect Hospice.
We pride ourselves on being a great place to work and we're always looking for outstanding people to join our team at the hospice across all areas of the charity.
Prospect Hospice is the leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north Wiltshire. Working closely with you, our colleagues within partner organisations, we want to ensure that the very best care is available to everyone facing the end of life. This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end of life care and support.
Grab your crayons, pick up your pencils and dust off your paint brushes as we’re looking for young artists to design a Christmas card for our 2023 collection.
Each year, Prospect Hospice sells Christmas cards to raise money to fund end of life care for local people. The collection features a range of images from religious settings, local scenes and animals so there’s always something for everyone.
Next year however, our card collection will feature a design by a young local artist and the competition is now open for those aged 11 and under to enter.
Victoria Canavan, head of retail at Prospect Hospice, said: “Our Christmas cards are incredibly popular with our customers and they love to see the different designs we have each year. As they’re supporting the hospice with their purchase, we know they’ll love to see something designed by a local child on the front and we’re looking forward to seeing the designs that come in. I can already predict we’re going to have a tough time picking a winner.
To enter, children will need to complete their card design on an entry form available to collect from our shops or our hospice reception in Wroughton.
There are no restrictions to the image you create. It could depict what Christmas means to you, it could be a scene that makes you think of Christmas or it could be something you think will sell well with our customers in our shops. You can also use whichever materials you like from charcoal to crayon, pencils or paint. We do ask though, wherever possible, that these images are hand drawn rather than digitally created and that there are no items stuck to the card as we’ll be unable to reproduce this in the production process.
The winner will receive five packs of their card design and be given the opportunity to meet the delivery at their local Prospect Hospice shop and help get these out on the shelves for sale.
To enter, completed entry forms must be handed in to a shop or the hospice reception no later than 5pm on Saturday 7 January 2023 and a winner will be notified later in the month.
