Small change ... big dif­fer­ence

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Advertiser Farming -

IT’S such a sim­ple ges­ture that so many of us do with­out even think­ing. You walk past a col­lec­tion tin or bucket with a fa­mil­iar char­ity on and reach in your pocket or purse and pop in a cou­ple of coins.

This sim­ple ac­tion of giv­ing Queen­scourt Hospice your loose change means so much.

Ev­ery penny you put in one of our col­lec­tion tins or buck­ets re­ally does help make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of lo­cal fam­i­lies.

Last year alone your loose change added up to an amaz­ing £8,097.51!

This could help pro­vide 32 nights of spe­cial­ist nurs­ing care in a pa­tient’s own home.

Thank you so much to ev­ery­one who has stopped and dropped a coin or two.

We wouldn’t be able to col­lect your loose change with­out our com­mit­ted group of vol­un­teers who will­ingly turn out to shake a bucket or tin, come rain or shine.

Not only do th­ese char­ity col­lec­tions raise much needed funds they also help raise aware­ness of the vi­tal work of Queen­scourt Hospice. Thank you so much. We’d also like to thank all the lo­cal su­per­mar­kets, shop­ping cen­tres, busi­nesses, fetes and events for giv­ing us the op­por­tu­nity to col­lect.

A col­lec­tion tin or bucket might only be filled with small change but that small change makes a such big dif­fer­ence to the lives of lo­cal pa­tients and their fam­i­lies. How you can help…. Vol­un­teer col­lec­tors – Could you spare a cou­ple of hours a month to help with an up­com­ing bucket col­lec­tion?

Col­lec­tion lo­ca­tions – Do you know of any stores or events in South­port, Formby or West Lan­cashire who would be will­ing to host a col­lec­tion for Queen­scourt?

Col­lect at work – Would you like to have a col­lec­tion tin dis­played in your place of work to help raise funds for the hospice?

Col­lect at home – How about hav­ing one of our handy card­board home col­lec­tion boxes to pop your loose change in?
