What incredible supporters we have!

Thank you to everyone who has supported our events this year, whether you took part, volunteered or helped promote an event to family and friends, you’ve played a big part in making our 2017 events a huge success so far.

Here’s what has been achieved, with money still coming in from our tenth anniversary illumathon memory walk, and with three  big events still to come. It adds up to a huge amount, which will help pay for frontline patient care here at the hospice and out in the community, where our nurses and hospice at home services are busier than ever.     

Just look at these figures!        

  • Bubble Rush:        £72,000 with 2,260 participants

  • Fun Run:                £55,000 with 2,180 participants

  • Bike Ride:              £24,000 with 800 participants

  • Colour Splash:      £40,000 with 1,500 participants

  • illumathon:         We are hoping to have raised £30,000 from our 10th anniversary illumathon.


    But that’s not all! Our Blackpool 10K Fun Run, the St George’s Day Festival in Lytham and the Lytham Festival have all been opportunities for fundraising and for raising the profile of the work we do here at the hospice and across the Fylde Coast. What a year it has been so far.
