Don’t Let The Kids Have All The Fun – Join the Princess Alice PJ Push!

Around 2,500 Surrey schoolchildren are set to join a huge PJ Day fundraiser – in support of the night nurses of Princess Alice Hospice.

Five primary schools have so far signed up to wear their pyjamas for a day, as part of the Hospice’s bid to raise funds during its 2020 Spring campaign – Care through the night.

The children – and their teachers – are being encouraged to don PJs and dressing gowns on Friday 14th February, the day when staff and volunteers at the Esher–based Hospice will be holding their own PJ Day.

A suggested donation of £1 each will help achieve the fundraising target.

The five Surrey schools – all part of Lumen Learning Trust – are Saxon Primary, Shepperton; The Echelford Primary, Ashford; Riverbridge Primary, Staines; Walton Oaks, Walton and Darley Dene, Addlestone.

Why Kind Fundraisers Are Needed!

Hospice Partnerships Fundraiser Eilís Kiernan said: “Our night nurses provide so much more than medical care. They help support patients and families when they need it most, in their own homes.

“Our 2020 Spring Appeal aims to raise £54,000 to help ensure that our night nurses can continue to deliver care each and every night.

Other people are holding a PJ Day on different days in February and March – Why Don’t You Join In The Fun!

“We’re aiming to get families, colleagues, schools, clubs, pubs, and teams of all kinds to hold a PJ Day for Princess Alice Hospice. It’s simple, easy – and lots of fun.”

All you do is wear your pyjamas while doing your job, hobby or sport, on one day – and pay £1 for the privilege.

There is a dedicated webpage to the PJ Day event – https://www.pah.org.uk/events/pj-day/ where you can download a fundraising pack full of ideas and tips to make your PJ Day a fantastic success.”
