FAQs

Where will Priscilla Bacon Hospice be built?

The new hospice will be built on land adjacent to the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. Co-location with the NNUH offers the many advantages of adjoining a major NHS site.

Staff resources can be used more effectively, medical logistical arrangements will be much enhances and the proximity of the Norwich Research park will aid interaction with medical research organisations.

What do I get when taking part in a Priscilla Bacon Hospice event?

Our Fundraising Team are on hand to offer support and advice – please contact us with any queries you may have.

We have fundraising support materials available for download on the ‘Fundraise’ page of our website, including poster templates and sponsor forms. If you have any problems downloading or printing these, please just get in touch and we will be pleased to send them to you by post.

Other materials, such as branded t-shirts, may be available depending on which event you are taking part in. We will give you full details when you sign up.

In some instances where there is a charge for taking part in an event, we may be able to over you a free place in return for you fundraising a certain amount of money for us. Please get in touch to discuss this for any of our events.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid allows us to claim back the basic tax rate paid on donations; including items donated for sale at our shops. This boosts our income by 25p per £1 donated – so a donation worth £10.00 becomes £12.50 with Gift Aid.

Gift Aid costs you nothing extra, but makes a huge difference to us. To allow us to claim Gift Aid on your donation, you must be a UK tax-payer and make a declaration to us either when donating online, or by completing one of our downloadable sponsorship or income forms on the ‘Fundraise’ page of our website.

I have raised some money, how do I send it to you?

There are several options for sending funds raised to us:

Donate online via the ‘Donate’ page of our website.

If you have used an online giving website, (such as Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving), to collect donations, there is no need for any further action as the donations are automatically transferred to us. If you raise any funds offline, you can also pay these into your bank and then onto your online page.

Cheques may be made payable to ‘Priscilla Bacon Norfolk Hospice Care Ltd.’ and posted to: Priscilla Bacon Hospice, 9-11 Drayton High Road, Norwich NR8 6AH.

If you have cash to hand over, or would like to make a BACS transfer, please contact us and we will be happy to advise.
