Father’s Day memories to support local hospice
- Monday, 15 June 2020
This Father’s Day a local hospice is encouraging people to share their special Father’s Day memories and help the care, support and activities provided to local people with life limiting illnesses.
Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice have launched their online Father’s Day Memories page. The page allows people to share pictures and stories about the special times they have had with their Dad, Grandad, Uncle or important men in their lives.
Karen Durden, In-Memory Fundraising Manager, explained
“Whether your dad took you to your first football match or on special walk in the Lake District, this Father’s Day we would like people to remember the special times they have had with their loved ones.
“This Father’s Day is set to be a bit different from other years. We might not be able to visit a special place or take our Dad out for a meal, but we will always have those special memories to cherish. By sharing those memories you can help Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw to create lots of special memories for local families today, tomorrow and in the future.”
With each memory shared on the page people have the opportunity to make a donation to support the vital care the hospice provides in your local community, although people don’t have to make a donation to share a memory.
As key workers, both the clinical and support staff teams at Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw are here for the local community. The hospice is doing all it can during these times to continue to provide care to those in need, whilst following strict guidelines.
Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw is open and continuing to provide care and compassion to local people with life limiting illnesses. The hospice is there for the local community and still supporting the NHS.
