Covid-19 is affecting us all but Prospect Hospice remains operational in order to support the increasing number of our community needing end of life support. Here you'll find lots of information about the virus and information and advice that we think will help you at this time.
Prospect Hospice has been providing end of life care to the people of Swindon and north east Wiltshire for over 40 years. Find out more about where we've come from and who we are here.
Find out about the 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, free of charge.
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.
Feeling Claustrophobic after lockdown? Then put on your hand Santa-tiser and get yourselves signed up for our fantastically festive, and not to mention socially distanced, fundraiser this December!
For only £10 per adult and £5 per child, we’ll provide you with your very own Santa suit to don while taking part in one of our Christmassy challenges below.
You’ll be left feeling merry and full of that warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that you’ll have raised money for a great local Claus (sorry!).
Just choose your challenge and hit the button below to get yourself signed up and suited up. And don’t forget to tag @ProspectHospice and #SociallyDistancedSantas on social media.
Whatever you choose to do, we ask that you please try and encourage friends and family to sponsor you for your efforts. We’ve made this as easy for you as we can by ensuring a fundraising page is set up for you as part of registering – no need for you to do anything other than share the page link with friends and family.
We provide the suit, you plan the route
This one’s a virtual take on a Santa Run. Just plan a route, put on your suit and get running (or walking)! Run a mile a day for a set time or plan a super sprint as a one off – the choice is yours.
For the more competitive of you, you might want to go for our Further Christmas title. Whoever runs the furthest will be rewarded with a hamper of goodies. We’ll also be giving a prize to the person who raises the most sponsorship.
Get festive and photogenic
Leave those resting Grinch faces at home and get ready to take your best elfie or perhaps you’d prefer to gather your household or bubble-chums and take a group shot…the choice is yours! Whatever you choose, we want to be as creative as you can.
Just sign up below before 16th December, receive your suit then post your photo online before midnight on 19th December to be in with the chance of winning either our Best Elfie or Socially Distanced Santas award. Just remember to tag @Prospect Hospice and include #SociallyDistancedSantas
Our judging panel will shortlist the best photos on 21st December and post them on social media for a public vote, with winners being announced on Christmas Eve.
Shake it like a Pole-aroid picture!
This one will have you saying BRRRRR Humbug!
Think Ice bucket challenge but, yes, you’ve guessed it, in a Santa suit!!
We challenge you to become a soaking Santa in aid of your local hospice and why not nominate a much-deserving friend or family member while you’re at it? Just post your videos on social media and tag us @ProspectHospice with #SociallyDistancedSantas then tag the person you nominate to join our team of festively fundraising St Nic’s.
This is a great one to raise lots of funds in sponsorship too so remember to share your online fundraising page links too.
Get jolly with your trolley!
‘Tis the season to push trolleys fa la la la la la la la la…. Well, it is this December anyway! We love this challenge and we’re sure you will too.
All we’re asking here is for you to do your weekly or even your big Christmas shop…..dressed as the jolly man himself! Then just get yourselves sponsored for the embarrassment…sorry, enjoyment.
We’d love to see your photos and videos so please remember to post away and tag us as above.
Select-your-own Santa challenge
Reading the above list?…Checking it twice?….and still not seeing anything you like? Not a problem! Have a think and choose your own challenge. We’ll still provide the suit and support you need.
