GoYellow! fundraiser returns for 2017
What wacky yellow fundraising initiative will you think up? That’s the challenge being laid down to the Isle of Wight as Earl Mountbatten Hospice’s GoYellow! campaign returns for 2017.
The fundraising drive runs from 30 September to 8 October 2017 to allow as many people as possible to take part by wearing, eating or doing something yellow to raise funds for the hospice. There will be a particular focus on Friday 6 October, when it’s hoped the whole Island will take part in a massive yellow mufti day.
Dani Johnson, Community Events Fundraiser, said: “Whether you’re in an office, school, shop or any other organisation, we need your help to turn us into the Isle of Yellow, in support of the hospice and hundreds of Islanders cared for every day during the most challenging times of their lives. Whatever wacky yellow idea you come up with, don’t forget to send us your photos so we can share your show of support across the Island!”
Nigel Hartley, Chief Executive, said: “Being part of GoYellow! is a great opportunity to contribute to the £7m it costs to provide our services for free every year. It is also a chance to reflect on the care that the hospice provides; both through our expert community team who support 650 people on any one day at home, or by caring for those on our ward and those who receive our specialist day services in the John Cheverton Centre. A huge thank you to everyone who takes part!”
