St Barnabas Hospice launches Go Yellow campaign in a push towards their £4.5 million fundraising target
St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice are urging the local community to Go Yellow this October by hosting a yellow themed fundraiser.
The Go Yellow campaign will run throughout October and businesses, schools and individuals are being encouraged to organise their own yellow themed fundraising event.
As part of the campaign, Friday 7th October has been designated ‘Wear it Yellow Day’ with people encouraged to wear something yellow in return for a donation to the hospice.
Harriet Hickin, Community Fundraiser for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:
“Go Yellow is a brilliant way for the local community to get together and have fun whilst raising vital funds for hospice care across the county. This year we must raise over £4.5 million to ensure that the right funding is in place to pay for the care our patients need.”
Support has already been pledged from Siemens, Sleaford Quality Foods and Ingham Primary School.
St Barnabas Hospice has produced a Go Yellow fundraising pack comprising of posters, sponsorship forms and branded t-shirts. There is also the opportunity to sell Go Yellow wrist bands or they can buy one from any St Barnabas Hospice shop.
Supporters are being encouraged to share their Go Yellow initiative on social media using #GoYellow
