This June, Rowcroft Hospice is launching a brand new awareness and fundraising campaign called Wear for Care, giving local businesses and schools the opportunity to put a colourful twist on the traditional ‘mufti day’ and make a donation towards their local South Devon hospice.
Rowcroft is encouraging the community to take part in Wear for Care on the 17th July 2013, or a day of your own choice. Katy Winter, Community Fundraising Officer said, “Whether you go for it in fancy dress, wear a wig or simply brighten up your usual outfit with some bright lipstick or silly socks – all we ask is that you stick to blue, purple and gold to show your support for Rowcroft.”
Rowcroft Hospice is based in Torquay, but its reach extends far beyond the walls of the building and their care is delivered across the South Devon community, covering 300 square miles. The hospice supports over 1,800 people living with life-limiting illnesses and their families each year through a wide range of services which are all provided free of charge. These services can only be provided thanks to the generosity of the local community who provide the majority of the funds needed each year.
However colourful you choose to be, every pound raised will ensure that Rowcroft Hospice can continue to support and enable people to carry on when, perhaps, at the time carrying on seems unthinkable.
If you would like to take part in Wear for Care, please contact the Community Fundraising team on 01803 210846 for your fundraising pack complete with posters and ideas to help make your day a colourful success.
