Willen Hospice Website

We were asked to build a responsive website that enhanced user experience and, most importantly, encouraged interaction, sponsorship and fundraising.

Willen Hospice is an independent charity offering specialist care to individuals with life limiting illnesses. Their dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social care professionals and other health care staff provide around the clock care to their patients and provide ongoing support for their families.



The Challenge



We were asked to build a responsive website that enhanced user experience and, most importantly, encouraged interaction, sponsorship and fundraising. 



The Work 



We built the site on our own advanced content management system, SiteMachine, with a modern, future-proof design to position Willen Hospice as a forward thinking, modern charity.



For fundraising purposes, Willen are the named charity for some of the largest events in Milton Keynes, often with their own events team helping to coordinate, promote and run them. So we also created a fully bespoke events manager to cope with all the events they are part of. To raise money an eBay shop was introduced to enable visitors to buy items online and pay directly into the hospice eBay account.  The intuitive site also enables visitors to view the latest Willen Hospice lottery results, search for their nearest charity shop and find details and booking information on upcoming events.

 

Another first for the Willen Hospice website was its integration with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to allow regular and single donations to be made directly via the website.



 



The Difference







Award winning website! Winner of the flagship website category as well as the bronze award for the education and charity category at the Milton Keynes Digital Awards 2016.



“We are very proud of our new website; our aim was to create a website that benefited our patients, their friends and family members and those who wish to support the Hospice. The improved functionality, easy to use layout and new features will enhance the online provision of Willen Hospice.”
