Will you take the plunge and go yellow for Hospice?

Saturday 18 June 2016

One man is going yellow for Hospice – by taking a cold custard bath in the middle of town in a few week’s time to raise money for charity.

Steven Hunt, who is charge of fundraising for Jersey Hospice Care, is helping to turn Jersey yellow as part of the annual Go Yellow for Hospice Day on Friday 24 June.

Steven said: “We are extremely grateful to all the companies, organisations and schools who support Jersey Hospice Care by going yellow this June. However you choose to get involved, you are helping to raise vital funds for the charity that cares for islanders with any life limiting condition and provides support to their families.

“I will be adding to the fun of “Go Yellow Day” by sitting in a bath of yellow custard in St Helier. I am encouraging Islanders to increase the time I sit in the bath by pledging money for minutes, by asking for a minimum pledge of £10.00 per minute or for a minimum donation of £5.00 to pour a cup of custard over my head on the day! My aim is two hours.”

You can donate to see Steven stay in the bath for longer here.

The charity hopes you’ll organize your own events like a yellow dress down day, or a yellow cake sale and help them raise £14,000, the amount it costs to run all the charity’s services just for a day.

Organisations can order a #GoYellow fundraising pack, which includes a fundraising guide, balloons, ribbons and yellow merchandise. You can also order a Go Yellow Bake Off starter pack.

The charity want to hear what you’re planning on doing to turn Jersey yellow, you can tweet them @jerseyhospice using the #GoYellow hashtag or post your pictures to their Facebook and Instagram pages.

All funds raised will help the charity provide specialist nursing care, free of charge, to islanders with palliative care needs within their homes, through the day care facilities and In Patient Unit at Jersey Hospice Care.
