A glowing result for Dorothy House Hospice

Dorothy House Hospice launched the ‘Firefly’ display and appeal in 2021 – an artistic display of hundreds of tiny lights, twinkling in the hospice grounds. Supporters were invited to donate a light in memory of a loved one. It was a huge success, but could we engage supporters two years in a row?


Together with a carefully selected mailfile, we worked hard on the proposition for Fireflies, focusing on the unique opportunity for individuals to remember their loved ones in this stunning setting.

The star of the appeal was Sue’s beautiful story about her daughter Jo, who spent the last few weeks of her life being cared for at the hospice. During her time there, Jo ‘blossomed’, her final days filled with ‘happiness, vibrancy and love.’

Fireflies did amazingly well, flying above and beyond the charity’s target and tripling income from the first year.

We’d love to work with you too!
