District Charity – PICU
Posted on Wednesday, April 26th, 2017
This year Southampton City have chosen the PICU Ward at Southampton Hospital as their local charity to support.
As I’m sure you are aware, every year the District selects a local charity to raise money for. This year we have chosen the PICU Ward at Southampton Hospital.
We can’t raise funds for a specific item, but whatever we raise will be used to: fund a refurbishment, fund new pieces of equipment, and provide a support service for patients and their families.
The donations from our celebrations (Founders Day, St Georges Day, Wacky Races, Carol Service and Christingle) usually go to the district charity. But wouldn’t it be good if every section/group did a sponsored event – for example:
- a silence, a bike ride, a run or a swim,
- a list of jobs to be completed,
- hair cut,
- give something up for a time – chocolate, cake, TV, smartphone, Facebook.
The Hospital is providing us with promotional material – which I will hold on to. So please let me know when you need them. I can also provide you with the sponsorship form. I suggest you collect the money in and pass to me when completed. I can then keep a running total of how much we raise over the year. Please note that we will need to give the Hospital the original sponsor sheets so that they can claim the gift-aid.
Thanks in advance for all the hard work and effort I know you’ll put into creating something amazing.
