Personalise Your Christmas Cards
Willen Hospice has registered as one of the charities that will benefit from sales on an online personalised greeting cards ordering site, www.doodle-doo.co.uk
For every card bought, DoodleDoo Personalised Charity Greeting Cards donates at least 10% of the purchase price after VAT to the buyer’s charity of choice. Willen Hospice will appear as one of the options buyers may select.
Hywel Jones, Head of Retail at Willen Hospice says “We’re encouraging people to use this online site when buying a personalised greeting card as it’s a really simple way to help make a difference without incurring any extra cost; whilst raising vital funds for Willen Hospice.”
DoodleDoo has thousands of designs from artists and photographers; themes and messages for every occasion and delivery is free. Willen Hospice even has its own gallery of Christmas card designs from a competition held last year by HWS Keens.
As a further initiative, local business Woolfe Jewellery based at centre:mk Milton Keynes, will MatchFund each amount raised on the site for Willen Hospice.
John Woolfe of Woolfe Jewellery said "At Woolfe Jewellery we are always happy to support the vital work done by Willen Hospice in any way we can."
Glenn Wynsor, creator of locally based DoodleDoo said “We are particularly keen to help local charities, and the opportunities for other businesses to MatchFund our donations make it even better. If we could get a few more companies on board for Willen Hospice, that would be wonderful.”
Willen Hospice services are free to those we care for but to continue to offer this care, we need to raise around £7 every minute from the local community. The annual running cost of the Hospice is around £4.6 million and although we are grateful to have 22% of these costs met by the NHS, the remaining 78% needs to be raised from the local community.
