Princess Alice Hospice
What is the Big Get Together?
It’s an opportunity to Get Together with your friends or family and have some fun – and one of the easiest ways to raise money for local hospice care. Princess Alice Hospice has joined up with other hospices across the South East to invite you to be part of The Big Get Together in October; all you have to do is ask your guests to make a donation that will go straight towards providing hospice care in your local community. You could invite the family around for a barbeque; hold a cocktails and canapés evening; watch films and eat pizza in your PJs; dance like divas or simply raise the roof with a good old-fashioned gossip; hold a Halloween themed get together in October; a bonfire party in November; a Christmas themed soiree in December or a New Year Get Together in January! You can be as sophisticated or silly as you like!FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE BIG GET TOGETHER
Why should I hold my own Big Get Together?
Because all money raised at your Big Get Together goes straight to Princess Alice Hospice. But the best part is you decide what sort of hospice-tality you offer, it couldn’t be easier! It could be the perfect way to celebrate a special person, on a special date, in a way that is fitting to celebrate their life whilst enjoying the company of your friends and family.
When should I hold my Big Get Together?
Well, that’s up to you too! You can join thousands of other people and hold your gathering in October, during Hospice Care Week (9-15 October), or if your Get Together will be to remember a loved one, you can choose a date that is more memorable to you.
So – sign up and get your pack full of ideas and inspiration today!
About Princess Alice Hospice
For more than 30 years, Princess Alice Hospice has been providing free, high quality, specialist end of life care to tens of thousands of people with life-threatening illnesses. Our compassionate support, comfort and advice helps families, carers and friends during their loved one’s illness and through the process of grief and loss. We deliver our care across a large part of Surrey, south west London and Middlesex – more than a million people are eligible for our help. Today, at any one time, our Princess Alice Nurses, doctors and other specialist staff are looking after more than 800 people in need. By ensuring our patients and their families get the “right care” by the “right person” at the “right time” we help to provide a better quality of life, improved care at home and to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions. Every patient who needs our care has access to the support from our team of specialists and our emotional and practical support also extends to carers and families. Founded by our local community, fundraising and community support are crucially important to our continuing work as a charity. It costs over £9.3 million pounds a year for us to provide our services.
