Go Purple

We're getting ready for our second annual Go Purple day on Friday 7th October 2016.



Go Purple WigsEveryone can get involved – school children, work colleagues, local businesses, mums and dads!

All we ask is that you donate what you can to help people who need hospice services in our local community. What will you do to show YOU care?

There are so many shades of purple and so many ways that you can GO PURPLE to show your support for your local Hospice. How you decide to GO PURPLE is completely up to you.

“By supporting GO PURPLE and fundraising you will be making a difference.

Karen Martin Go PurpleIt means expert care from a knowledgeable doctor.

It means a home visit from a specialist nurse or a reassuring outpatient appointment in our Spring Centre.

It means improved mobility from a physio or a cup of tea and a listening ear with a volunteer.

It means days free from anxiety and pain.

It means art or play therapy for a bereaved child. It means laughter and love, at a time when it might have seemed impossible. We couldn’t do it without you! Thank you.”

Karen Martin - Sister at The Hospice of St Francis
