Orange April old

When? 1st – 30th April

Where? Anywhere!

What? Simply go orange this April in support of St Giles.

Go orange for Orange April!

Wherever you are, whatever you do, make sure it’s orange this Orange Week April!

We had originally planned to go orange for just one week, but with so many orange activities to enjoy, we’ve decided to change Orange Week to Orange April instead!

So, simply think of a ‘bright’ idea – from wearing some wonderful orange attire, to baking a delicious orange cake – and help us raise vital funds for local people this month.

To help you get started, we’ve created a digital fundraising pack full of orange ideas. Whether you dress, bake, make or originate orange, please do let us know what you’ll be getting up to below.

We can’t wait to see your ‘bold’ brainwaves! Wondering what happened in 2019? Take a look at our Facebook photo album.

We’ve never needed you more than we need you today.

We’ve recognised for a very long time that it takes a community to make a hospice and, in light of the current coronavirus outbreak, we’ve never needed you more than we need you today.

As a hospice we are experiencing a big increase in people needing palliative care at this time.

Our shops have had to close, our events are being cancelled and our income has almost dried up. We are now reliant on donations to continue our work.

We’re continuing to deliver care to some of the most vulnerable people in your local community, but it costs £850,000 every month just to keep our service going.

By taking part in Orange April, you will be helping to raise vital funds for ‘Katie’s Appeal’ to allow us to continue our essential work.

We need you, our patients need you. Thank you so much.

Katie Taroni, Clinical Director
