4 simple things you can do in lock-down
1st April, 2020
We fully support the measures that have been put in place by the States of Guernsey to keep our islanders safe but they have had a big impact on our income with three of our key events having to be cancelled or postponed and the doors of our charity shops having to stay closed. We anticipate that based on 2019 figures this could be a loss of income of up to £140k over a three month period.
Les Bourgs Hospice appreciates that this is a very difficult time for all local charities and businesses so we truly hope that every one of you are ok. It is now, more than ever that our view of “every penny counts” rings true and where a large number of small actions can make a big difference. So how can you help?
- Donate to our charity shops (when they are open again!) – we know that some of you will be using this period of lock-down to have a good sort out so please think of us and put aside any items that are clean and in good working order ready to donate to our shops when we are up and running again
- Register for your online shopping to make money for us – over 4,000 shops and sites will donate to Les Bourgs Hospice for FREE when you shop online with them. Please sign up to support us today: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/lesbourgshospice/?utm_campaign=raise-more
(please do make every effort to support local & buy local when business returns to normal as this will be a very tough time for them too)
- Sign up to our newsletter - please click on the blue "Signup" button on the bottom of any of our website pages
- Make a donation – don’t forget we are firmly of the belief that every penny counts!
As an example;
£10 could help cover a patient meal
£50 could help cover half a day of nursing care
£100 could help cover a full day of nursing care
Any amount that you can afford to donate will be greatly appreciated and we will work hard to help it make a big difference to our patients and their families.
If you would like any additional information please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 210329, we would love to hear from you.
Thank you for your support.
