Join the 40 Days 40 Items Challenge!

Usually, during Lent, we think about giving up a guilty pleasure, for the six weeks in the run-up to Easter. This year, instead of giving up chocolate, caffeine or sugary drinks, why not get involved with the 40 Days 40 Items Challenge and help raise money for Hospiscare patients by donating some of your unwanted items?

Each day of Lent, take one item you don’t use or wear anymore and put it in a box or a bag. At the end of Lent donate these items to your local Hospiscare shop.

Hospiscare shops rely on quality donations from our wonderful supporters to raise money for the charity. Support Hospiscare this Lent by decluttering your home and feel good knowing the funds raised will help provide care for local patients and their families.

We’ve put together this handy prompt list to give you some inspiration. Follow along with us on Instagram and tag your pictures #Hospiscare40Days40Items. We’ll share our favourites between now and Easter!


Hospiscare is extremely grateful for all donations and we try to raise as much money from every item we receive but there are some items we can’t accept because of safety issues and disposal costs. Find out more here.
