Busy year ahead to help raise funds
Events play a vital role in spreading the word of the funds needed for St Andrew’s Hospice as well as bringing in income to keep the charity surviving.
With the Capital Appeal £ 9 million fund adding an additional eight events on the current Hospice event calendar, 2016 is a busy year.
And thousands of people across Lanarkshire take the time and effort to help raise the vital funds need for the daily running of the Hospice.
With this being the hospice’s 30th anniversary this is the perfect opportunity for you or your business to raise funds which will provide the people of Lanarkshire with a state of the art facility that will last for the next 30 years.
If you would like to help St Andrew’s Hospice celebrate their 30th anniversary by attending an upcoming, event holding your own fundraiser or to simply to donate to our current appeal- call 01236 766951, visit www. standrewshospice.com or follow us on social media: www. facebook. com/ St- Andrews- HospiceCapital-Appeal @StAndrewsCapApp standrewshospice
For the 30th anniversary we are running a Pearl Tea Party campaign for the community to get together and we are asking you to join the party by holding your own Pearl Tea Fundraiser. Host an afternoon tea or coffee morning, a tea dance, a golf tea, a mad hatter tea party.
