Go green for Hos­pice Care Week

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

COULD your school or work­place sup­port us dur­ing this year’s na­tional Hos­pice Care Week by wear­ing green for a day?

Hos­pice UK is the na­tional char­ity for hos­pice care and they or­gan­ise Hos­pice Care Week every Oc­to­ber to raise the pro­file of hos­pice care across the UK.

This year, it all kicks off on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 9 and, as green is our hos­pice colour, we’re ask­ing our local com­mu­nity and sup­port­ers to Go Green for St Joseph’s Hos­pice for one day dur­ing the week.

St Joseph’s Hos­pice is unique in that we care for pa­tients who have been re­ceiv­ing one to one care here for months and in some cases for years.

This is what makes us dif­fer­ent to any other hos­pice.

As a char­ity, our care is pro­vided free of charge by our ded­i­cated nurs­ing team who look af­ter all as­pects of end of life care for over 200 pa­tients every year.

The theme for this year’s Hos­pice Care Week is ‘We are hos­pice care’ so it’s also a great op­por­tu­nity to show the many faces of hos­pice care and to share their in­spir­ing sto­ries. From nurses to vol­un­teers, chefs to chap­lains, cor­po­rate part­ners to car­ers. It’s about cel­e­brat­ing ev­ery­one in­volved in pro­vid­ing and sup­port­ing hos­pice care and that in­cludes you – our com­mu­nity and fundrais­ers.

Please get your school or work­place in­volved and share your pho­tos with us on so­cial me­dia @JospiceUK #WearGreen4HospiceCare.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about sup­port­ing the hos­pice, please con­tact the fundrais­ing team on 0151 932 6044 or email events@jospice.org.uk.

For up to date news and in­for­ma­tion, please fol­low @JospiceUK on Twit­ter and Face­book.
