Let's turn up the volume!

Today marks the start of Children's Hospice Week 2017.

We take part every year, and this year's theme is 'Let's Turn Up The Volume'.

This week we are hosting special events for our younger patients, and we're also encouraging our staff and volunteers to wear loud clothes all week.

Children's Hospice Week is organised by Together For Short Lives, of which we are a member. A spokesperson said: "This year we will be turning up the volume on children’s palliative care to raise awareness about the number and needs of children with life-limiting conditions and to celebrate all the lifeline services that children and families rely on. We want to amplify families' voices and change people's perceptions about some of the myths surrounding children's palliative care."

And you can help us turn up the volume by getting involved in some noisy fundraising... it's not to late to organise something!


Noisy 9-5: Get your colleagues to turn up the volume for the day

  • Amp up your outfit – from neon colours to crazy hair…glam up, go loud and give!
  • Pay to play – host a lunchtime music quiz to find out who’s top of the pops

Noisy Night: Grab your friends and go loud together

  •  Playlist party – get your pals round to play their top five tracks, dance and donate.
  • Karaoke competition – hold the ultimate sing-along and crown the best crooner.


You can help us make some noise on social media too by posting with the Children's Hospice Week #UpTheVolume hashtag.

Head to the Together For Short Lives website for posters and other resources you can use, and most importantly... tell us all about what you're doing!
