Whether It’s by yourself, in your bubble, at school or nursery or even on your way to school – you can raise some well needed funds this festive season by completing your own run, or perhaps you would prefer to hop, skip or even jump! Or if you want to perhaps have an elf fancy dress day and make a donation to the Hospice?

At Princess Alice Hospice we have created a safe place for children to get the support they need in what can be the most difficult of times. We have a Dovetail Group, a big playroom with an abundance of toys and also our social workers that help the children talk about their loved one.

So we can continue this work, we need people just like you to join in our fundraising events. If Elf Run sounds like the event for you let us know how you will be taking part by contacting events@pah.org.uk and one of the team will be in touch with some more information and to send over a pair of antlers or elf ears for everyone who is taking part!

You can also download our Elf pack below for more information.

Virtual Death Cafe - 14 December 2020

1.30pm

Virtual Death Cafe

T: 01372 461958
E: cc@pah.org.uk

A chat about death over coffee and cake might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it could get people talking about a subject that is still taboo for many. In our Death Cafés we aim to empower communities with the knowledge, skills and confidence to engage with death, dying and loss.

Here’s what one attendee, Sue, had to say about her experience:
“Death is part of life and affects us all, yet it largely remains a taboo subject. Attending the death cafe has given me the chance to discuss and learn from others and consider how I feel about my own wishes for the end of my life and to express those to my family. It is a positive, interesting experience and feels very safe to chat about death which you can’t do anywhere else”.
