St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford is encouraging people seeking a new venture in 2017 to come along to a ‘Hospice Heroes’ information evening on Tuesday 24th January to find out more about fundraising and volunteering opportunities.
Bosses say hospices nationally are facing a challenging time with significant government funding cuts. As a result, St Luke’s is urging local people to support their charity to ensure its services - which serve a population of 280,000 people - can continue.
The hospice has a loyal supporter base and the event will provide an opportunity to showcase some of their amazing efforts, allowing people to hear first hand from inspirational fundraisers and volunteers about they support the hospice.
Community partnerships fundraiser Carole Salmon said: “There are hundreds of fun ways people can raise money and lots of opportunities for volunteering.
“Our fundraising team is always available to provide hints and tips on how to make the most of your efforts. We’d encourage people of all ages to come along to the event and find out more about how they can support us.”
The information evening will start at 5.30pm at St Luke’s Hospice, Winsford with refreshments provided.
