2019 is Willow Wood’s twentieth anniversary; that’s 20 years of loving care for the people of Tameside and Glossop. The continued support of our community ensures not only that we are able to care for our patients and their families, but to develop our services, maintaining our position at the pinnacle of Hospice care.
Our fundraising events are essential to our success, and during 2019 we are organising a great mix of old favourites and new events. These range from challenge events such as the IKEA Abseil, convivial nights out with our Foods around the World, family fun events like our Bubble Rush or events where you can relax with friends like our Cocktails & Dreams.
Later in the year we’re bringing back probably our best loved sponsored event – the Midnight Wander, and we are really looking forward to seeing many hundreds of you dressed in pink once again!
That’s not until September however, so why not sign up for one of the two big fundraisers at the beginning of the year? Our 20/20 Challenge starts on Friday 1 February and will be asking you to go head-to-head with other local teams and individuals to raise funds for Willow Wood. We’ll give you two £20 notes as a starter fund to be invested however you like. The challenge will run until the end of April when we look forward to seeing just how enterprising you’ve been.
A very different challenge is Back to the Fitness on Sunday 3 February and this will really give your New Year’s Resolution to get fit a kick start! You can sign up online now for a two-hour 80s themed Zumbathon, a 90s inspired Clubberthon or, if you’re really keen, both on the same day!
We would love it if you could help us celebrate our 20th Anniversary by joining with one or more of our fundraising events. There is such a wide choice over the year there is sure to be something to suit you.
To find out more about how we’ve developed over the last twenty years, or to sign up for one of our fundraising events just go to www.willowwood.info and help us continue our care.
