Whether you’ve fundraised for us before or this is your first time, there are plenty of ways you can raise funds for your local hospice! It's important to us that we look after each other and our community by staying safe, so all of our events are planned in line with current government guidelines. All of the money you raise helps us to maintain our vital services for patients and families across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Create your own challenge event

This is your chance to raise money for your local Hospice and have fun by designing your own challenge. You could climb Everest on your stairs, run a marathon distance over a month in the area near where you live, cycle 200 miles in four days or walk 13,000 steps to equal the distance our nurses’ travel on a typical shift. You are only limited by your imagination! Our fundraising team are happy to support you.
