Could you become one of our box collectors?
We are currently looking for volunteers to become box collectors in the Brinkworth & Greenmedow areas. Our collectors are an important part of our volunteering team, collecting household boxes within their neighbourhoods. Household boxes are an easy way for people in our community to donate to the hospice, and box collectors enable us to continue to raise funds in this way. If you are able to help, or would like some more information on this role, please contact Alex on 01793 816163, or email


The Memory Tree

Remember those who hold a special place in your heart this Valentines. 
The Prospect Hospice Memory Tree, situated within their private Remembrance Garden in Wroughton, provides individuals with an opportunity to create a memorial tribute for a loved one.  Each copper or stainless steel leaf hanging on the Memory Tree is engraved with a name, making it a poignant and lasting way to remember.
The Memory Tree leaves are available to anyone who would like to create that special tribute to their loved one, even if you have not previously been directly involved with Prospect Hospice.
The contribution you make for your leaf will help Prospect Hospice to support and care for people affected by a life limiting illness, across our community. Order by January 18th so that your leaf will feature on the tree for this very special date.
To find out more about the Memory Tree and how you can order a leaf please visit Prospect Hospice Remembrance Garden, contact 01793 816111 or email   

Make a brew, make a difference!
Bake a cake and put the kettle on!
Invite your family, friends, colleagues, neighbours or the general public for a cuppa and a slice of cake in return for a donation, and help support the care and services we provide. Something as simple as a brew and a slice of cake could raise enough to pay for 24 hours of care for a patient on our In-Patient Unit. So, go on, make a brew, make a difference! or call 01793 816161.

Prospect Rocks

Prospect Hospice is joining the rock painting craze! In late October the hospice hid around 30 rocks across Swindon and Marlborough that were designed with the Prospect logo and a text donation code. They are now challenging the community to go out and find the rocks, take a photo, donate £3 to your local hospice and re-hide the rock in an area of your choice. Happy hunting

Thank you for your continued support of our work.
Best wishes,
