Virtual Crafternoon

Get crafty with us whilst keeping safe at home, and help Hospice continue to raise the vital funds to help care for local people in your community.

Host your own Virtual Crafternoon with friends, colleagues and family all from the safety and comfort of your own home, whilst supporting Northern Ireland Hospice. 

By holding a Virtual Crafternoon, you’ll be raising money to help us continue to care for local people in your community living with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses. 

How to get started 

Set up your Fundraising Page 

Set up your fundraising page using Just giving or Tiltify include the reasons why you're supporting Hospice and some information on the Virtual Crafternoon you'll be hosting.

Decide on how you will stay connected

We recommend using Zoom and Skype to host your Virtual Crafternoon. Simply choose which platform you'll be using and share the link with your guests. Once everyone is logged on - get crafting!

Hold the Crafternoon that's right for you! 

Feel free to start small, invite one or two friends for a virtual catch up, cuppa and try some new crafting ideas together. Make sure to send through your Just Giving link to encourage donations.

Don't be afraid to ask. 

It’s important that your guests understand upfront that this is a fundraising event, you’ll find the clearer you are about that, the more generous they’ll be.

Choose crafts to help brighten your day!

Why not make some cards for family members to show you're missing them, a crocheted blanket for a new addition or a summer wreath to hang on your door? Whatever you choose to make, by hosting your own Virtual Crafternoon you'll be helping to support Northern Ireland Hospice during these challenging times.
