Find out about the wide range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These 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 manage without considerable support from our local community. Learn about all the different ways in which you can help Prospect Hospice, for example by taking part in fundraising events, playing our lottery, or remembering us in your will. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Prospect Hospice is a leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north-east Wiltshire. We provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end-of-life care and support.

A significant amount of Prospect Hospice’s income is raised through our charity shops. The success of our retail operation depends on the generous support of the local community (donating and buying goods), and the commitment of our managers and volunteers. Find out more here.
One of the most direct ways that you can support our work is by making a donation.
Every year hundreds of businesses across our local area help us raise the £8.4m we need each year, providing funds to go directly towards the care and support we give to over 7,300 local people every year.
We would be happy to thank you publically either through local media outlets or by providing one of our ambassadors to come to your premises and thank you directly.
Last year’s fundraising efforts at Imagine Cruising included a Prospect 10K, Tough Mudder challenge, Run the Rainbow, Starlight Walk, Monster Run, Prospect garden fete, The Great Imagine Bake Off, Bonus Ball Lottery and a Christmas Jumper Day.
The whole team gets behind these events and we look forward to another year of fundraising for this fantastic charity, which makes a huge difference to so many people’s lives.
We rely on your support to raise the majority of the £8.4m we need each year. Here are just a few ideas for events and challenges that you might like to try to raise funds for Prospect Hospice
We have a number of opportunities for corporate sponsorship of our events. In exchange for funding the set up cost of one of our events we can offer the opportunity for your organisations branding to be maximised throughout.
A package would be put together for each event but some typical examples for promotion are:
Some examples of our events that are typically sponsored are the Starlight Walk, Run the Rainbow and Prospect 10k.
By sponsoring one of our activities you allow all the participants money raised to go directly into our service costs and of course you will facilitate the overall fundraising amount the event generates not just the sponsorship amount you pay us.
Staff at Nationwide Building Society, chose Prospect as their charity of the year for 2012. The partnership saw Nationwide supporting a number of our major fundraising events, involving staff in charitable activity as well as donating the time and professional skills to key areas of the work of the Hospice. Chad Rogerson, Senior Citizenship Manager at Nationwide said: “Many of the staff have been touched by the work of the Hospice over the years, and clearly this was an influential factor in their decision. “We kicked off the partnership with a £20k corporate donation and a plan to raise a further £50k through employee fundraising, as well as providing additional volunteering and support. We have also got off to a successful start with a dress down day and fundraising sports week raising over £10k in the first few months. We also have a number of link-ups in place with a variety of departments where we can bring our professional expertise to support the work of the Hospice in the coming months.”
The care we offer to patients and their families costs over £8.4m every year, 72 per cent of which is raised through the support of our community. Read more about our amazing supporters.
