October Virtual Death Cafe - 4 October 2021

Hands holding cup

7.30pm

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”.

01372 461808

Registration fee (advance): £25

 

Minimum sponsorship pledge £150.

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?

Plus every firewalker can also enjoy free entry to Esher Rugby Club Fireworks (or 2 free tickets for people raising over £100!).

PJ Day - 11 February 2022

Fundraising fun in your pyjamas! | View on map

5 people in PJs

events@pah.org.uk | 01372 461808

Take part from anywhere that suits you and on any day in February!

Make a minimum donation of £2 (per participant) or why not get family and friends to sponsor you.

Support us in February 2022 by holding your own PJ Day; whether you’re learning at home, at school, working remotely or in the office.

Our aim is to raise awareness of The Princess Alice Hospice at Home service and the care that our nurses provide for patients in their own homes, 365 days of the year. Our nurses and doctors have adapted to ensure that care has continued throughout the pandemic; sometimes via phone or video call but still with many home visits. All you do is wear your pyjamas while doing your job, hobby or sport on any one day – and pay a suggested minimum donation of £2 or ask family and friends to sponsor you.

Organise a PJ Day in February (the official Princess Alice Hospice PJ Day is on 11 February, but you can choose any day and time that suits you) and help raise money and awareness of the work our nurses do so they can continue to care for more people with life limiting illnesses.

You can either make a donation or set up a JustGiving fundraising page via our JustGiving campaign page here. Please ensure you follow the latest government guidelines if participating with friends, family and/or colleagues.

Here are just a few fun activities and ideas you can do whilst wearing your PJs;

  • Zoom class quiz or team quiz
  • Virtual lunch
  • Virtual tea party
  • Sponsored walk (in your support bubble)
  • Complete a challenge (steps, walk, run etc.)

Download our PJ Day fundraising pack below which is full of great tips and ideas to help you plan for your day. If you are interested in holding your own PJ Day in February get in touch with our events team (events@pah.org.uk) as we would love to hear all about it and how we can support you.

Registration will open soon – please check back here for further updates.

Talk and walk to show your support…

It’s a stereotype but it’s true – research shows that men often find it harder or have fewer opportunities to talk about life and death, share emotions, fears or anxieties and seek help when they need it.

Princess Alice Hospice works hard to support all members of the family and has developed a number of initiatives aimed at men in particular, including our Man Shed, cookery courses and Dads’ groups.

Put your best foot forward and join us for a sponsored 10 mile walk in March 2022. Talk the Walk with friends, colleagues, your dad, uncle, brother or other family members (topics of conversation are entirely up to you) and shoulder to shoulder we’ll raise funds to ensure that our compassionate care can continue to reach more of those who need it, including men of all ages – whether they are ill, bereaved, or caring for a loved one.

The route starts and finishes at Esher Rugby Club in Hersham and passes through the Hospice onto Cobham Rugby Club, Reeds Rugby Club before returning to Esher Rugby Club in time for the Esher v Barnes match that afternoon. Your entry includes a T-shirt, a pint and a burger as well as your medal and match ticket.
