Step Up for Local Care
Tuesday 01st September 2020
Will you Step Up this September for St. Vincent’s Hospice? With the current pandemic cancelling fundraising and awareness raising events in recent months, the local charity are asking you to take on a sponsored fitness challenge this September to help provide vital care for people in the community who need it most.
St. Vincent’s Hospice is a specialist provider of Hospice and palliative care for patients and families in Renfrewshire who are affected by life-limiting conditions. This includes Inpatient care, Day Services and Community Nurse support, as well as counselling and bereavement support for adults, children and young people, who have been affected by the loss of a loved one.
Fundraising Manager for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Carol-Anne Lamont, said: “The last six months have been surreal and challenging for us all. With events and fundraising challenges cancelled or put on hold indefinitely, this month we need you to step up for local care, and take on a fitness challenge for our Hospice!
“Can you walk 5k every day? Are you ready to tackle a Monroe? Just looking to get fit and need a reason to finally start going those runs before work? This is your opportunity to get fit and give some vital support and funds to your local Hospice.”
Fundraising packs and support are available by contacting the Fundraising Department by calling 01505 705 635 or emailing Info@svh.co.uk.
Carol-Anne added: “Every penny raised makes such a difference to local families going through some of the hardest times in their life, and no challenge is too small. So please, if you’re looking to get back in shape after a long lockdown, do it for us! Get in touch, tell us your story and Step Up for St. Vincent’s Hospice today!”
