Fundraise for Andy’s
If a life will be short, let us fill it with joy!
When you know a child’s life will be short, every moment really does count and every smile is treasured all the more. At Andy’s, we have been helping young members of the local community with life-limiting conditions for over 20 years. Throughout this time, thousands of families have come to know Andy’s as a safe place where they can relax, feel special, enjoy their surroundings and have access to the care that they need. We are now looking to the future and developing the services Andy’s offers to meet the changing needs of the children in our community with life-limiting illnesses.
There are almost 2,000 young people within our area who face the challenges of living with a serious medical condition – that number is rising each year. Life for these children can be lonely and isolating. Their families rely on the care, compassion and support that we offer.
This summer we are asking you to Raise A Smile to help us develop our children’s hospice provision to meet the broad and changing needs of these families.
How will you fundraise for Andy's?
Choose your challenge
Think about how you will fundraise, what will the activity be? We suggest that you try to think of something which is fun for everyone as it will make it easy to raise money.
Here’s some ideas to get you started:
How about a sponsored head shave or body wax?
Maybe you could host a Come Dine With Me-style party night and charge your guests to take part.
Everyone loves cake – why not organise a bake sale at your local school or community group?
Perhaps organise a quiz night at your local pub in aid of Andy’s at St Andrew’s Hospice. Remember to keep it fun!
If you’re a cycling fanatic, why not bike the classic London to Paris cycle ride, a Coast to Coast challenge or create a target of your own.
Why not get a group of friends together to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge or swim across the Humber?
We would love to support you on your fundraising journey.
We’re here to discuss your ideas and help you promote your activity to best effect. If you’d like to talk to a member of the fundraising team, please call us on 01472 350908.
