Our hospice needs you!

Midweek Visiter - - Queenscourt Hospice Column -

WITH less than 100 days until Christ­mas, Queen­scourt Hospice is count­ing down until the start of its an­nual Christ­mas Tree Col­lec­tion.

Whether you choose a Spruce or a Fir Christ­mas tree, Queen­scourt Hospice is on hand to col­lect and re­cy­cle your Christ­mas tree, whilst rais­ing vi­tal funds for peo­ple in South­port, Formby and West Lancs.

Queen­scourt Hospice needs van driv­ers and Christ­mas Tree col­lec­tors to help over the week­end of Satur­day and Sun­day, Jan­uary 12-13, 2019.

Vol­un­teers will not only re­ceive a tasty break­fast butty to kick­start their day, but they’ll also be part of a bril­liant fundraiser which of­fers great pro­mo­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions who help out at the col­lec­tion.

Last year the an­nual Christ­mas Tree col­lec­tion raised over £8,000 and vol­un­teers col­lected more than 800 Christ­mas trees.

Queen­scourt Hospice re­ceives less than 20% of its fund­ing from the NHS and it costs ap­prox­i­mately £4m to op­er­ate an­nu­ally, so fundrais­ers like the Christ­mas Tree col­lec­tion can make a real dif­fer­ence to peo­ple in South­port, Formby and West Lancs.

If you would like to take part and do­nate your time to help us dur­ing the 2019 Christ­mas Tree Col­lec­tion, please get in touch with com­mu­nity fundraiser Rachel on 01704 517420 or email the fundrais­ing team on fundrais­ing@queen­scourt.org.uk
