Go yellow for St Michael’s Hospice

St Michael’s Hospice is calling out for people throughout Hastings and Rother to join in the annual Yellow Day, which is taking place on Friday, March 27.

For the past nine years, local schools, colleges, nurseries and companies have been taking part in the yellow fun.

So whether it’s a mufti day, a yellow cake sale, yellow karaoke, yellow party, or even a banana eating competition, there are plenty of ways for everyone to get involved and raise money or sponsorship.

The hospice is also looking for donations of handmade yellow flower brooches to be sold throughout the Yellow Day celebrations. All handmade brooches need to be delivered to the hospice by Friday, March 13.

Amanda Hildreth, hospice community fundraiser, said: “Yellow Day is our annual awareness day to help raise the vital funds needed for the hospice. Every year we support more than 1,300 patients, their families and friends as well as bereaved people throughout our catchment area. The cost of running the hospice is £5,000,000 each year.”

If you would like to take part or donate brooches, call Amanda on 01424 456371 or email ahildreth@stmichaelshospice.com for a fundraising pack.
