A hospice in Mapperley is urging people in the borough to get behind a national campaign by opening up their wardrobes and kitchens.
Nottinghamshire Hospice wants local people to host dinner parties to raise money for the charity and to raid their wardrobes to donate clothing and other items to the hospice shops as part of the ‘Open Up Hospice Care’ campaign led by Hospice UK.
Nottinghamshire Hospice – which is one of the campaign partners– is also opening a drop in café on Fridays from 10am – 2pm, for people to drop off contributions.
Jo Polkey, Director of Care at Nottinghamshire Hospice says: “We’re encouraging people to get behind the campaign, whether it’s by spring cleaning their wardrobes and finding items to donate, or by inviting friends and family round for a dinner party. It all helps raise vital funds to help us expand our care to more terminally ill patients across Nottinghamshire.
“We are opening the hospice premises throughout March on Friday afternoons for people to drop in with donations and join us for a cup of tea and cake.”
If you have clothes or items to donate please take them to your local Nottinghamshire Hospice Shop or come to the drop in café at Nottinghamshire Hospice, 384 Woodborough Road, Nottingham, NG3 4JF, between 10 am and 2pm any Friday in March
