BE BRIGHT BLUE FOR
8th – 15th June 2019
Support our in-patient unit and Be Bright Blue this June!
For the fifth year running, Beaumond House is running its Be Bright Blue Campaign and is hoping to raise crucial funds to support the
in-patient unit of the hospice.
Beaumond House offers a wealth of services all free of charge to its patients and service users.
In 2018 the target for the campaign was £10,720 with a plan to refurbish patient areas within Beaumond House. This target was exceeded and over £16,000 was raised, enabling the hospice to make further improvements and continue to deliver the best care to local people.
This year the campaign will be held 8th -15th June and is a way to keep supporters informed of the hospice’s good work and encourage fundraising in the local community. This year’s target is £10,528, which is the gap left between funding from the NHS and the cost of running just one room of the in-patient unit for one month.
Many people may have known family or friends that have spent their final days and hours at Beaumond House and the
in-patient unit is where people receive such fantastic respite or end of life care. This can be an extremely daunting time for anybody close to the patient, but Beaumond House aim to make the experience as comfortable possible.
Beaumond House is calling for support from the local community to help reach this target!
