Do #ju­s­tonething to sup­port Thorpe Hall Hospice

Char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

If, a week into the New Year, you need a lit­tle gen­tle per­sua­sion to stick to your­res­o­lu­tions, the team at Thorpe Hall Hospice are of­fer­ing a help­ing hand. They are giv­ing peo­ple from across the re­gion the chance to make a public pledge this month to do# Just One Thing – in the hope that shar­ing a res­o­lu­tion will re­duce the chances of it be­ing bro­ken. The cam­paign asks in­di­vid­u­als, groups, busi­nesses and clubs to do #Ju­s­tOneThing to sup­port the work of the Sue Ry­der hospice, in Longth­orpe, Peter­bor­ough. The cam­paign ties in neatly with NewYear’s res­o­lu­tions, sug­gest­ing peo­ple chal­lenge them­selves to com­plete a Couch to 5k pro­gramme, run a half marathon, take on an in­ter­na­tional trek, learn a new skill and then use it to raise money, or give their time by vol­un­teer­ing. There’s also the op­tion of de­clut­ter­ing and do­nat­ing un­wanted items to a Sue Ry­der shop, or do­nat­ing via the web­site. Head of fundrais­ing Donna Young said: “There’s no bet­ter time than New Year to set your­self a new goal or chal­lenge, but stick­ing to res­o­lu­tions can be tough. By choos­ing to do some­thing for char­ity and then mak­ing a public pledge you’ll have lots of friends and fam­ily help­ing you stick to it!” Donna, who has worked at Thorpe Hall since Septem­ber, has taken the op­por­tu­nity to make her own pledge to fundraise for the char­ity for the first time – she’s not only go­ing to run a 5km race but­she’s rop­ing in her­fam­ily to join her to max­imise spon­sor­ship. To take part, down­load the pledge cer­tifi­cate from the web­site www.suery­der.org/ Thorpe Just One Thing, fill it in and take a selfie and then share on so­cial me­dia. If you need in­spi­ra­tion for your pledge, Thorpe Hall’s fundrais­ing team would be de­lighted to hear from you. Email: Thorpe.fundrais­ing@suery­der.org or call 01733 225999.
