There’s a week long party happening across Nottinghamshire in October – and you’re invited!
Join our big Purple Party from 14th to 19th October and paint the town purple to help our patients by hosting your own purple party or fundraising activity of choice, whether you’re at home, in the office or out in the community.
Purple Party is your big opportunity to shout about Nottinghamshire Hospice’s work in your local community and contribute to our care.
There are lots of ways you can join in. The ideas are endless, but always fun and easy! Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
Party with friends and family
- Hold a purple-themed coffee morning or afternoon tea
- Gather friends for a purple-themed night in
- Take on a sponsored challenge with a purple twist
Party with colleagues
- Bring out your best purple outfits for a dress up day
- Hold a purple bake sale or a themed lunch
Party with us
This is how your support will help families across Nottinghamshire
When Steve learnt his friend Bob had just weeks to live he had no hesitation in taking him to his own home and promised to care for him until he died. With hospice support, Steve kept that promise. “Bob was terrified of going into hospital and I said I wouldn’t let that happen. Towards the end we had nurses here every night right up to him dying. They were absolute angels. Without a doubt we couldn’t have carried it through without the hospice.”
At Nottinghamshire Hospice we provide quality palliative care for people with a terminal illness – such as cancer, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, heart failure and respiratory disorders – throughout Nottinghamshire, supporting them to die at home with family and friends around them if that is what they choose to do.
Wherever you live in the city or county, the chances are there’s a nurse in your neighbourhood right now caring for someone in the last weeks, days or hours of their life.
During Purple Party week we want to raise £23,000, which will provide one week of Hospice at Home care across the city and county – sign up today and you’ll be ensuring that more people like Bob have the care and support they need to remain at home in their last months, weeks and days.
