From everyone at St Luke’s, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved with our Go Yellow campaign. From wearing yellow to knitting and crocheting items to baking yellow cakes and biscuits, people’s enthusiasm towards fundraising for the Hospice throughout June has been heartwarming.
Go Yellow has helped to raise over £2,000 for St Luke’s – an amazing achievement which was only made possible by the help of our wonderful supporters in our community. Thank you, without you, it would not have been the success it was and we hope everyone enjoyed playing their part.
We had yellow knits donated from Barnies Yarnies, Chicks That Knit and The Natty Knitters. The local knitting groups kindly created yellow items including butterflies and flowers which were then sold at various events over the past few weeks as well as in the Hospice.
The support shown by our corporate partners has been fantastic with yellow dress down days, bake sales and raffles making for a fun-filled Go Yellow Friday. We would like to say a special thank you to Mosshaselhurst Solicitors, Poole Alcock Solicitors, One Stop Shop in Haslington, Millbank Holdings, Howard Worth Chartered Accountants, Ashfields Doctor’s Surgery, Specsavers Northwich and Quest Services.
Residential Homes and Retirement Villages
Local residential/nursing homes and retirement villages also showed their support to Go Yellow. Staff and residents at Hollymere House Care Home in Crewe wore yellow for two days. Meanwhile, Acorn Hollow in Lostock Gralam hosted a Go Yellow day for all the residents, their families and received a lovely visit from the Town Mayor, Janet Myerscough-Illidge. A super afternoon was had by all, with a little sing-a-long, lots of yummy cakes and a fantastic raffle raising an incredible £326.00 for our Hospice. Beechmere Retirement Village in Crewe held a Coffee Morning with a quiz and a ‘guess how many yellow sweets in the jar’ competition.
Activity Coordinators said Go Yellow Friday was a great way to involve their residents and it made for a fun filled day.
Early Years Settings and Schools
At Safehands Oak Tree Nursery in Crewe, each of the children received a personalised pack from St Luke’s with seeds and a planting pot for a donation to St Luke’s. Dawn and her team all dressed in something yellow and helped the children to plant the seeds ready to take home.
Staff and children at Busy Bees in Northwich wore yellow and sold yellow breakfast bags.
Meanwhile children at St Oswald’s, Worleston C.E Primary School came to school dressed in yellow on Friday 23rd June.
We still need your support throughout the year
There are lots of ways you can show your support to St Luke’s all year round. From dedicating some time to help as a volunteer, to shopping in one of our charity shops, to setting up a regular donation or playing our lottery to signing up to one of our events; any amount you donate to St Luke’s goes towards helping us to raise money for patient care. Thank you.
