Virtual Garden Show - 1 July 2020

1 to 31 July 2020

Share your home-grown havens!

At this time of year, many people throw open their gardens to the public – allowing their hard work to be seen and enjoyed by many in aid of charity. It’s also the time of year where thousands of people flock to Chelsea or Hampton Court to enjoy the flower show. 

We know how hard some of you have been working in your gardens and would love to give you the opportunity to showcase the fruits of your labour as well as giving us the opportunity to raise some funds to fund our Compassionate Care Continues appeal.

We’d love to see your garden or patch of oasis – big or small – wild or manicured – vegetables or verbena – roses or rustic.  Or if you have worked on a community project and volunteered to make a place for others to enjoy – we would love to see those too.  For all the budding junior gardeners who might have had spent some extra time whilst school has been out helping with the garden or growing their own plants – now is your time to shine and show off your green fingers!

Watch this space for details of how to enter – coming very soon.

However big or small please support us by making a donation on our JustGiving page

…standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 or even 15,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below.

Imagine being able to do the highest Skydive in the UK, whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to help Princess Alice Hospice! Stop imagining; it’s real and it’s happening throughout this year and you can be part of it.

Why not jump on a special day, a big Birthday or in memory of a loved one? We have dates available throughout the year. For some inspiration, watch this video of our brave supporter Tony Skydiving for the Hospice on his 80th birthday.

2.6 Challenge - 31 July 2020

The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UK’s charities. | View on map

Supporter Care 01372 461808 or supportercare@pah.org.uk

Registration is free

Encouraging supporters to raise £100 minmium, however there is no fixed sponsorship target

The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UK’s charities.

This is a challenge for all ages and abilities. All you need to do is think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 that suits your skills and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April. This could be something as simple as pledging to run 2.6miles as your daily exercise to doing 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes (or maybe just 2.6 minutes) non-stop.

Check out the ‘how to get involved’ page  for more ideas and inspiration. And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out your house or flat for now – you can do your 2.6 challenge anywhere inside too! There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. Whatever you can do, you can be a part of it – the main thing is to get active, have fun and pledge whatever you can to help save the UK’s charities.

Remember to use #PAHTwoPointSixChallenge when you post your challenges!

A firewalk is the most inspirational journey you will ever undertake. It is as the name suggests: a bare foot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring around 800 degrees. No tricks, no special effects. Just you and the fire.The decision to walk across the coals is dramatically life changing. Not because you have decided to firewalk in itself, but because you have consciously decided not to let your fear inhibit your actions. Once you take the power away from fear, there is really nothing stopping you. After all if you can walk safely across hot coals what else is possible?

To register for this event please contact our Supporter Care Team on the number/email above.
