Education Support

We’re really excited about creating connections with schools in Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire. Let’s figure out how we can help each other out!

There are lots of ways your school or college can fundraise for the hospice. Whether it’s making us your Charity of the Year, having a non-uniform day, rocking an inter-class team challenge, or just doing a classic cake sale – we’re all for it! We’ve got balloons, banners, and all the fundraising goodies you need. Plus, we’ll be right there with you, making sure it’s great fun and a huge success.

Our team is ready to give tailored presentations for all ages, whether it’s a full-school assembly, a smaller class, or even at the hospice in our meeting room.

We’ve got programs that fit right into the Curriculum for Excellence, and we can tweak them to match different projects like the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Our team can swing by during school hours or after, whatever works best for you. Let’s make learning fun!

Penny Mile ROAR-A-Thon!

Vinnie and Abigail have got a BIG challenge for you this year!

Vinnie has been ‘Lion’ low and is now ROARING to go with our latest charity fundraiser initiative ‘The Penny Mile Roar-A-Thon’ where we are turning every penny into a ROAR-ing success for our Little Hospice With The Big Heart.

At St. Vincent’s Hospice, we are committed to providing compassionate care to those facing life-limiting illnesses, offering support to patients and their families during their most challenging times. However, we cannot do this without the generous support of individuals like you.

Spread Cheer For All To Hear!


YPI is the biggest independent initiative being delivered in Scottish education. Each school is responsible for directing a grant of £3000 to a local charity championed by its students through a unique programme of teamwork, research, and competition.

YPI engages a full year-group of students, developing skills and confidence through a contextualised learning experience. The programme raises awareness of social issues and local charities, and is a vital means of enabling devolved, locally driven grant making.
