Go Pur­ple & Green for Queen­scourt

Midweek Visiter - - News -

GET ready to see a splash of colour and a wave of pos­i­tiv­ity this Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13, with Go Pur­ple & Green, a colour aware­ness day for lo­cal char­ity, Queen­scourt Hospice.

For one day don your pur­ple T-shirt, pull up your green socks, maybe a swish of pur­ple eye­shadow or even top it off with a green wig if you’re brave.

Round up your col­leagues, es­pe­cially the boss!

Get your class­mates in­volved, which class can raise the most?

Or sim­ply gather your friends for a bit of fun.

Lucy Smith, com­mu­nity fundraiser for Queen­scourt, ex­plains: “It’s a sim­ple, colour­ful way to have a bit of fun with fundrais­ing and bring ev­ery­one to­gether for a very spe­cial lo­cal cause.

“We’d re­ally love to see our whole com­mu­nity join­ing us in fly­ing Queen­scourt’s colours.”

So join in and let your cre­ativ­ity flow… show off your bak­ing prow­ess with pur­ple and green cakes for peo­ple to do­nate to en­joy, maybe a selfie sta­tion in the of­fice or even set up a nail bar for fab­u­lous colour co-or­di­nat­ing nails!

Lucy added “We’re def­i­nitely look­ing for­ward to it here in the of­fice, it was such a funny day last year!

“We’re spreading pos­i­tive vibes with Fri­day the 13th as our of­fi­cial day, but of course you can choose a date that works for you.

“If ev­ery­one joins us and em­braces Queen­scourt’s colours for just a small do­na­tion each, we can make a great big dif­fer­ence to­gether.”

On av­er­age Queen­scourt touches the lives of 750 fam­i­lies each year and sadly the need for their ser­vices is grow­ing.

How­ever you join in, ev­ery sin­gle penny raised will help Queen­scourt to give a spe­cial kind of care to pa­tients and fam­i­lies in South­port, Formby and West Lan­cashire.
