Fundraise and support your local hospice

Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice relies on the help and support provided by you, the local community we serve, to offer the highest quality care to those with life-limiting conditions. The local NHS trust provides around 25% of our running costs, while the remaining 75% comes from the generosity and efforts of our supporters in the local area and beyond through fundraising.

Fundraising in the community

We are proud to be able to say we have a mixture of wonderful fundraising events that others are undertaking to ensure we can continue to provide compassionate care to families.

If you have an event that you are holding in aid of Jigsaw and would like to be included on our events page, then please do get in touch with the fundraising department by emailing

We would love to hear about what you are doing and be able to support you.

Home money boxes

Our Home Money Boxes are a great, easy way to raise money for the hospice. Once full you can bring it in to the hospice and drop it off with us, take it to one of our charity shops or to your local branch of the Cumberland Building Society.

If you’d like a Home Money Box, please let us know by emailing or give us a ring on 01228 817657.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a Government scheme which allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated. This means that if you were to make a donation of £100 to the Hospice, you’ll actually be giving us £125 at no extra cost to you!
