Hospice Big Bash Family Fun Day

June 29

The Hospice Big Bash

Celebrate the summer with the Hospice Big Bash! Get together with family, friends or colleagues this  June. You can host a tea party, (or any kind of party you like) in support of your local Hospice. All you have to do is decide what kind of party you want to host (see below for some inspiration), tell everyone you know all about it and have a great time all while raising money for a worthy cause.

Case Study: Tania BurgessIf I am feeling down I only need to phone the Hospice and they put light into my day, I really could not have managed without them. People suggested I needed Counselling after losing Kerry, Dad was the one keeping me going and I knew I would feel it when he was no longer here. I was struggling to cope but a call to the Hospice and all the support I needed was arranged. They even arranged for me to have complementary therapy as my mental health has suffered badly and this helped relieve my anxiety.

Info and Inspiration

  • Decide what kind of party to host. You could have a traditional tea party, a prosecco pic-nic, a pint and a pie, Gin and Pjs, BBQ, Cocktail Night or even turn an upcoming birthday, event or anniversary into an amazing Hospice Big Bash!
  • Set a date, time and venue: At your home, in a community hall, at your place of work; wherever you decide to host your party just send an email or invitations out at least two weeks in advance so you can get a good idea of numbers.
  • Don’t go it alone. Get as many people as you need to help out and allocate tasks; one person can bake, another could make sandwiches (or cocktails, or anything you can think of) and someone else could do the serving, that way everyone gets to take some time out.
  • Decide on how you’ll raise the money – You could either charge people a set amount for a ticket or people could pay for what they have. Don’t forget to think about adding value, so you could also do a raffle or a tombola or even guess the ingredients in the cocktail!! All these little things will add extra cash to your overall fundraising.
  • Sit down, relax, catch up with friends and enjoy your Hospice Big ‘Bash’!
  • If you are not partied out we would love to see you at Abertillery Park on Saturday 29th June for our Big Bash Family Fun Day proudly supported by Tai Calon, taking place 11am-3pm.
