Raise money for us

Bury Hospice needs your support to keep going. We could not do this without you

Hospice Care Month – Get Involved!

Monday, October 4th is the start national Hospice Care Week, when hospices across the country raise awareness and to get people really thinking about how they can support their own local hospices. It is a great opportunity to introduce everyone to the work that hospices do and to encourage a fundraising activity within schools, workplaces, etc.

Bury Hospice has dedicated this month to raising awareness and funds for the hospice ­- and here is how you can get involved. Throughout October, as well as highlighting the first-class care provided at Bury Hospice, we are encouraging people to wear something yellow and donate £1 to the hospice.

During October, we are looking for businesses and organisations to sell hospice sunflower badges, nail files and trolley token keyrings for a donation of £1 to show their support.

The sunflower is the national symbol of hospice care and yellow is the colour of the hospice movement, so we are asking everyone in the borough to think about what kind of yellow event they can hold that will raise money to help care for people who really need our help.
If you are holding a yellow event, let the hospice know and we can share it on social media channels. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated, you could guess the number of yellow sweets in a jar, pay £1 to wear something yellow for the day or make and sell some buns with yellow icing.
For more information and to get involved, call Rachel Krafft on 0161 797 1748
