BE BRIGHT BLUE FOR BEAUMOND HOUSE
Throughout October 2018
We invite you to turn the place bright blue for Beaumond House this October!
We want every single person, irrespective of background, religion or age, who walks through our doors to feel welcome and that Beaumond House is the right place for them.
We know that some people, especially young adults, feel that our Hospice is a little dated and so they have put off coming here. One of our priorities is to carry out some work to ensure we achieve this.
If we reach our campaign target of £10,720 we will be able to refurbish a number of patient areas, upstairs and downstairs, in Beaumond House. We can create a vibrant environment, meet the standards set down by Infection Control as well as our own very high standards and create a much better space for everyone who comes.
Patients are at the centre of all we do at Beaumond House and we want to Be the Best we can Be - for everyone.
How you can get Involved
This year to help us meet this huge challenge, we have arranged a number of bag packs involving lots of supermarkets in the town. We have lots of times and dates to choose just 2 hour slots from and really value your support. Can you support us in a way which will not cost you a penny? Our ask is for a one off gift of your time – just 2 hours. You can bring a friend or two or even a family member and come and help us towards our massive target!!!
If you would like to help, please contact Cathryn Crane, Community Fundraising Officer 01636 610556 or email here.
