People across the Harrogate district are being urged to brighten their day and that of someone in their own community by helping to raise funds for their local Hospice.
Despite the wet and windy start to summer the team at Saint Michael’s Hospice, Harrogate,are encouraging people to make their own sunshine this June by taking part in Yellow Month.
June marks four weeks dedicated to raising awareness of the important role Hospices play in their communities and raising funds to sustain these much-needed local services.
Saint Michael’s chief executive Tony Collins said:
This is a great opportunity to get creative and have fun whilst raising funds to ensure Saint Michael’s can continue to help local people live with terminal illness and bereavement.
We hope that as many people as possible take part, spread the word and raise money for their local Hospice, so why not encourage your school, college, workplace, or social group to get involved?
The money you raise will brighten the day of someone in your community by ensuring they get the care and support they need at a very difficult time in their lives.
Popular fundraising ideas include yellow-themed tea parties, dress down days and yellow-themed challenges, such as bathing in custard.
No matter what your idea, the team at Saint Michael’s can offer support to organise your fundraising and make it a success.
And the person or group who raises the most money and returns these funds by July 15 will scoop a year’s supply of Yorkshire Tea, courtesy of Taylors of Harrogate.
If you would like to hold a yellow-themed fundraiser or have any questions about this campaign, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (01423) 879 687.
