Care Through The Night Appeal – The Princess Alice Hospice Pyjama Push
Join the Princess Alice PJ Push
Throw off the winter blues and put the fun into fundraising!
Pop on your pyjamas and join the Princess Alice Hospice PJ Push for funds.
Everyone’s being urged to hold a PJ Push event at their school, pub, club or workplace in support of our fantastic night nurses – who offer care for patients at home throughout the area while the rest of the world is asleep.
By pledging to wear your pyjamas while doing your own daily activities, you can show your support for these dedicated nurses. A donation of £1 per PJ participant will raise vital funds to enable our nurses to continue to provide specialist care. £35 pays for 1 hour of care from a Princess Alice Hospice night nurse; £385 pays for a full night’s care.
Many people don’t realise that 80% of Princess Alice Hospice care is delivered across a wide geographical area rather than in the Hospice itself in Esher. Last year, our specialist Princess Alice nurses made 14,461 visits to 2,785 patients in their homes.
Our night nurses play a crucial role in helping patients to stay in their own home and prevent unnecessary and unwanted hospital admissions, as well as providing support to the whole family. This results in more patients dying in their place of choice, which is often at home.
How you can help: Joining the fun is easy – just pick any date between 11th and 25th February 2019, get your best pyjamas out – and encourage your family, friends and colleagues to do the same.
Why not make it an extra-special event – add some fun activities to raise more money at the same time? Cake sales, quizzes, draws, raffles, challenges and forfeits can all be used to swell the total.
If you are planning a PJ Push, email us details so we can give you a mention to boost numbers joining in – and it would be great to see photos of your PJ Day, to share on social media.
If you’re planning a quiz as part of your PJ Push, we have a special, fun, sleep-related quiz you can use – just email to ask for a copy.
