We're urging local people to ‘go yellow’ and take part in our first Hospice Action Week in October.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare has a whole host of fundraising events and activities planned during this special week, coinciding with national Hospice Care Week (4 – 10 October), which aims to raise awareness of the work of the hospice movement across the UK.
Lindsey Lodge Senior Manager for Income Generation Tom Moody said: “Hospice Action Week is a great opportunity to show support for Lindsey Lodge.
“Whether it’s you, your friends and family, or your organisation – there are so many ways to roll up your sleeves and get involved – all we ask is you wear something yellow while you’re doing it!
“You can grab your golf clubs and sign up for our Golf Day, put your general knowledge to the test with our Big Quiz, or buy a yellow outfit from our shops to wear it yellow at work. You can also reach Hospice Hero status by planning your very own fundraising project for us.”
The 29-year-old Hospice has seen a 98% rise in the number of admissions to its vital Inpatient palliative care services in the last five years.
Tom added: “As well as providing vital end of life care, we’re now delivering a variety of innovative services and interventions, which provide much-needed support to people living with life limiting conditions in the community.
“So, however you choose to show your support, you’ll be helping us to continue to provide hospice and healthcare services for our local community. So let’s turn North Lincolnshire yellow!”
