Christmas events at Jersey Hospice Care

We have a number of Christmas events planned, so please make a note in your diary.

Christmas Market | Sunday 25 November from 10:00 to 15:00

Start your Christmas shopping with us. Our Christmas Market is being held in the King Centre, Jersey Hospice Care, Mont Cochon. There are lots of ideas for presents, with several Genuine Jersey stalls, Sugar Art’s incredibly decorated Christmas cakes, a raffle and refreshments. There will also be entertainment throughout the day. There is plenty of parking available.

Christmas Carol Service | Sunday 25 November, at 16:30

After going along to the Christmas Market, why not start your Christmas countdown with our Christmas Carol Service at St Andrew’s Church, First Tower. We will be joined by local singer Kacey Hacquoil and the school choir from St Saviour’s School. Everyone is welcome.

Light Up a Life | Saturday 1 December at 16:30

Light up a Life is a special remembrance service, which gives people the chance to gather with friends, family and the wider community to pay tribute to those they have loved and lost. It takes place in the grounds of Jersey Hospice Care. Everyone is welcome, regardless of how long ago your loved one died and whether or not they received care from Hospice.

A separate media release will be issued for this event

Santa Dash | Thursday 6 December at 12:00

Dash for a good Clause! Join us for the Santa Dash; a fun, festive dash around the streets of St Helier in fancy dress, raising money for Jersey Hospice Care. Santa suits will be provided – but all fancy dress is welcome!

Individuals and teams can enter, meeting at Liberty Wharf first for a warm up with Father Christmas. Refreshments will be provided afterwards.

A separate media release will be used for this event                                                                   

Festive Friday | Friday 14 December

What better way to celebrate the season of goodwill than holding a Festive Friday in your school or workplace? Why not turn your dress down day into a fancy dress day or a Christmas jumper day? You could organise a Christmas bake sale or competition for the best decorated Christmas tree. Whatever you choose to do, you can help to raise vital funds for your local hospice.

Christmas Day Swims | Tuesday 25 December

Two Christmas Day swims have been organised for Jersey Hospice Care.

Head down to Ouaisne Slip for 10:20 for an early dip and raise money for Jersey Hospice Care and the Animal Shelter. Warm refreshments will be served afterwards in The Old Smugglers Inn as a reward for your bravery!

There is also a swim at The Watersplash at St Ouen. Get there for 10:45 for a safety briefing before heading into the sea at 11:00 for three minutes in the sea. Drinks will be available at The Watersplash from 11:00 to 13:00. This is subject to change depending on the weather conditions. For updates, please check the Jersey Surfboard Club Facebook page.
