Lindsey Lodge Hospice #weneedyou
Lindsey Lodge Hospice launched its #weneedyou campaign following the cancellation and postponement of its traditional fundraising activities, due to lockdown restrictions and social distancing guidelines.
The campaign encourages people to support the Hospice however they can, whether it’s completing a weird and wonderful challenge, buying a ticket for the Summer Superdraw or simply spreading the word.
It’s not just physical challenges that people are taking on for Lindsey Lodge, there have been head shaves, 300k runs in 30 days and even sitting in baths of cereal, proving that there are ways for everyone to get involved.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice Chief Executive Karen Griffiths said: “We’re extremely overwhelmed and grateful for the support that we’ve received from the local community.
“We’ve had many wonderful activities and challenges taken on in support of the Hospice, most of which have been undertaken in peoples back gardens! It’s been great to see the local community coming together to support Lindsey Lodge.
“We’re in unprecedented times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which is why we need people’s support now more than ever, so we’re encouraging people to get involved in our #weneedyou campaign in any way they can.”
Even at this very difficult time, our Inpatient Unit remains fully operational, and our clinical team are working tirelessly 24/7 to support local patients and families at the hardest, most difficult time in their lives.
#Weneedyou and your support to try and mitigate the financial impact of Coronavirus on our Hospice, and continue to provide our specialist palliative care. Whether it's making a donation or setting up your own fundraiser at home, every penny counts.
