Whilst we have not been able to go on holidays or camping to our favourite site, we thought we’d bring camping to you!
Join the Hospice Big Camp Out this Whitsun bank holiday.
Why not dig the tent out and pitch it in the garden, or build a tepee with some poles and sheets?
Don’t have a garden or yours isn’t big enough….?
Don’t fret, why not bring your camp indoors. Pitch up a small tent or drape sheets around furniture to create your very own indoor tent.
While camping in your own home for free, we are asking people to donate what you would have spent on a night’s pitch fee or some of the fee to the Hospice of the Valleys.
Whether that’s £5.00 or £25.00, your donation will truly help to make a difference right now to patients living with a life limiting illness, their carers and families.
To pay your camping fee, please visit our Just Giving page by clicking here
And don’t forget to send us your camping photos on our Hospice of the Valleys Events Face Book Group – you can request to join the group by clicking on this link

Our amazing Hospice at Home team are helping to protect the NHS by caring for our patients in their own homes and helping avoid hospital admission where they can be.
It typically costs £150.00 for a member of Hospice at Home staff to provide care and support during the night which also enables the patient’s carer and family to grab a night’s sleep – we would love to be able to support 7 night shifts with this campaign and have set a target of £1,050.00
PLEASE REMEMBER THE BIG CAMP OUT MUST TAKE PLACE WITHIN YOUR OWN GARDEN OR HOME AND MUST ONLY BE WITH FAMILY MEMBERS FROM YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD.
