A local hospice charity is encouraging the community to support its care by hosting a fundraiser ‘fit for a Queen’ during the Platinum Jubilee holiday.
Between Thursday 2nd and Sunday 5th June 2022, Havens Hospices is asking supporters to hold afternoon tea get-togethers, street parties, picnics or garden barbeques in aid of the charity which cares for children, young people and adults living with complex or incurable conditions.
To mark this special year and to help kick start your special royal celebrations, the charity has put together a special Jubilee Community Fundraising Pack available to download on its website for free.
Jane Hopkins, Community Engagement Manager at Havens Hospices says: “This is an excellent opportunity to not only bring your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours together but to raise much needed funds for your local hospices, Fair Havens and Little Havens.
“Our hospice care is a lifeline for local families and we must continue to do all we can to raise more than £85,000 each week to be there for more local people, ‘Making every day count’.
“Whether you want to hold an afternoon tea party with your friends and family, a Jubilee themed cake sale at work or school, or organise a street party with your neighbours – we would love for you to get involved and have a royally good time. We’re here to support you every step of the way.”
