Pixelbuilders Donate Website to Help Yorkshire Hospices

We have a long-standing and successful history with many hospices in Yorkshire – including Martin House Children’s Hospice, St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds, Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract and St Leonard’s in York. 
We’re really proud of the work we do with all our hospice clients – especially when we look at the number of donations and event bookings each regularly receive to help with their ever-so-important fundraising.

Martin Oates, our Commercial Director, said,

“When we were approached by a number of our clients to say they’d grouped together to launch a TV campaign around supporting your local hospice we offered to build and host their website for free as our way of supporting them and giving back to the great work they all do across the region.”
The campaign launched in March 2019 with a TV advert focused on the premise of ‘Keep your local hospice shining brightly.’  The entire cast of extras who feature in the 30 second advert was made up of hospice staff, patients, supporters and their families to create, what we think, was a very powerful and impactful message.

The advert closes with a simple message asking people to go to the website we’ve built. It’s at www.supportyourlocalhospice.co.uk When visiting the website, users can find out more about the great work the hospices do, read volunteer, staff and family stories and, importantly, find who their local hospice is so they can support them or donate directly too them.

Carol Devine, Head of Marketing and Communications at Martin House, said:

“We’ve worked closely with Pixelbuilders for several years and have always had great support from the team there, so it was an obvious choice to ask them to develop a new website to support this exciting collaboration between eleven Yorkshire and Humber hospices. 
“We’re delighted Pixelbuilders offered to create and host the website free of charge – we hope it will be a useful resource for people who see the TV advert and want to find out more about the hospices across our region and how they can help us to care for more adults and children.”
