FUNDRAISING
We are bursting with excitement about our TWO fun- lled, 5k Bubble Rush events, which are bubbles ahead of any other fun-run, in two great locations! We start with Bubble Rush HERTS in Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead on 30th April and then there’s our Bubble Rush BUCKS in Lowdes Park, Chesham on 9th July. Which one will you choose?
Sign up now at stfrancis.org.uk/bubblerush
“The Bubble Rush is really amazing. There is so much foam at each Bubble Station that me and my dad disappeared! You get really wet and bubbly and it was a great way to raise money for the place where my grandma was looked after. I can’t wait to do it again!”
Ross Geary, aged 8, from Berkhamsted
Giving in Celebration
From weddings to ruby anniversaries, 30th birthdays to retirement collections, whatever you’re celebrating, why not ask your family and friends for donations to The Hospice of St Francis instead of gifts?
Emma and Robin Smith did just that when they tied the knot last June. Keen to remember Robin’s father, Gordon, who had been cared for by the Hospice in 2014, the new Mr and Mrs Smith asked guests to bring homemade cakes that were then sold for the Hospice at their reception bake sale.
Newlywed Emma said, “We were so happy to be able to remember Gordon in such a special way at our big day. The family wore Hospice pin badges, while guests donated as our way to say thank you for his care!”
If you would like to remember a loved- one and include the Hospice in your special day, please speak to a member of our Community Fundraising team, who can provide Hospice pin badges for favours, collection boxes or gift envelopes.
