To continue raising funds for 2021, St Barnabas Hospice is asking its supporters to go hopping mad this Spring.
With Easter just a few weeks away, the Hospice is ‘egg-cited’ to launch the St Barnabas Bunny Hop, which is perfect for nurseries, childminders and schools.
This free-to-register fundraiser provides supporters and their bunnies with all the support and resources needed to plan the big Hop.
Fundraising Development Manager at St Barnabas, Caroline Swindin, said: “We’re excited to launch our Bunny Hop and getting involved couldn’t be easier. Supporters just need to pick a date between 22nd March and 16th April to hold their Bunny Hop and Barney the bunny will deliver a FREE pair of fluffy bunny ears for each child and one lucky adult!
“Nurseries, groups or schools simply need to set up a JustGiving page where supporters can make a donation in the weeks leading up to the Hop. Everyone who sets up their JustGiving page by 16th March will also receive a Bunny Hop Easter Egg Hunt kit, including chocolate eggs and bunny footprints.”
The hospice has set up a sponsorship target of £5.10 for each child taking part. This small donation provides a patient receiving Hospice at Home care with hot and cold packs to help soothe swollen joints and offer pain relief from aching muscles.
Even smaller donations can make a big impact for a patient, which is why any sponsorship raised is gratefully received.
On the day, bunnies can choose to hop around their nursery, garden or bounce across a school playing field.
Barney will also be making some special appearances on social media, so make sure you follow #BunnyHop to see what Barney is up to next.
To say a big thank you, Barney will also send a video message after Hops and a downloadable certificate too.
Registrations close on 15th March, or earlier if the event is full.
