Fundraising at school

There are so many ways that you can support Alexander Devine at nursery, school, college or university!

Fundraising can be fun, educational and rewarding.  It’s a great way for children and young people to play an active part in making a real difference in their local community.

Your school can help raise awareness about Alexander Devine and raise vital funds to ensure that children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and their families, get the specialist care and vital support they need.

Your support will change lives. Every penny you raise will help make precious memories and make every moment matter for local families.

We have created a fun and educational programme that has everything you need including engaging assemblies, creative fundraising ideas and activities.  Get in touch with our Community Fundraiser, Jazmin Parker, to find out more and request a copy of our fundraising pack. Please call 01628 822777 or email


Together we can change lives

Life-changing support for children like Talia

“Alexander Devine stepped in and made such an unforgettable impact on our lives. They’ve enabled us to watch Talia enjoy a new, safe and exciting environment, give respite from her medical demands, and most importantly backed us as a family through every step of our journey.” – Gemma, Talia’s mum

Even the grown ups can get involved too!

 Are you a member of a Parent Teachers Association (PTA)? As well as fundraising for your child’s school, you could also help change the lives of families in your neighbourhood who rely on our children’s hospice service. 

However you choose to support our charity we are so grateful
PTA fundraising guide

From organising a charity event to arranging toy collections, there are lots of ways to make a real difference. Please get in touch if you would like a copy of our PTA fundraising guide or would like help with organising an event.

Not sure how to make a difference?

Here’s just a few fundraising ideas to get you started…

Make it blue

It was 8 year old Alexander’s favourite colour – why not hold a blue day when everyone has to dress in as much blue as possible?

Make it add up

Which class can bring the most spare change into school and fill their jar to the top? 

Make a night of it

Movie, quiz or bingo – you choose the treat and with some creative fundraising on the night it could be a treat for us too!

Make it challenging

1k, 2k, 3k or more! Get active and raise vital funds for your vital school resources and our vital services

Make a sale

Cakes, toys, books…let the pupils decide!

Make it lucky

A simple raffle to see whose birthday date is the luckiest!

Playtime just got more magical at our hospice!✨

Thank you so much to Lifelites for their latest donation of assistive and inclusive technology to help enrich the lives of the children and young people that we support.

Today Lifelites has been training members of Alexander’s Care Team on how to use all the new equipment and toys including Eyegaze which helps children with limited movement or restricted speech communicate and take control for themselves, using just the movement of their eyes. With most of the equipment easily portable, it means there are no limits to where and when we can play!

It was wonderful to be joined by some of our families to celebrate the donation of this new technology and, of course, have a play!

We are so grateful to the National Lottery Awards for helping to fund the important development of our Family Support programme.

The increased need to develop our Family Support programme has been driven by an increasing number of children with complex needs and a rising number of bereaved families. Thanks to National Lottery Awards’ generous donation of £9,250, we are able to widen the support we can give families including the recruitment of our Family Support Worker, parent group meetings and special events such as our remembrance days.
