Thank you for getting up and going orange this April!
Whether from home, work, school, or even on Zoom, thank you so much for going orange and supporting your local hospice this April.
We loved seeing and hearing about your orange activities, from dressing up (or down!) to holding your Orange Zoom parties and more.
If you chose to raise sponsorship during Orange April, don’t forget to pay in your sponsorship money as soon as you can. Simply click here and select ‘Orange April’ from the drop down menu.
We can’t wait to go orange again in 2022!
We’ve never needed you more than we need you today. Thank you so much.
We’ve never needed you more than we need you today.
Our Hospice at Home team will be among those dressing in orange while they are out and about across the area caring for patients and their families.
Healthcare Assistant, Amy Foster, said: “For Orange April I will be doing takeaway afternoon teas to raise funds and my daughter and I will be doing a sponsored space hopper run! We would urge everybody to ‘Get up and go orange’ to support St Giles this April and hope people will be happy to take part this year as we’re all in need of a good laugh!”
She added: “I was already a supporter of St Giles, but I decided that I really wanted to work here because of the support the hospice gave to my mother-in-law. I wanted to give other people some of the love that I had received from St Giles.”
Amy and our team are continuing to deliver care to some of the most vulnerable people – both in the community and our hospice sites – but it costs £850,000 every month just to keep our services going.
“It’s so important to have our community supporting us and raising funds for us, this year more than ever.” Amy added.
“Whether it’s doing a sponsored walk or a cake sale, and whether it’s raising a couple of pounds or a thousand, it makes such a difference to the service we can provide to local families.
“Our care means the world to people and shines so much light and positivity onto patients and their families at a time when they are in such a dark and challenging situation.”
Thank you so much.
