Lewis-Manning, an independent Hospice based in Lilliput, Dorset, are launching Tie A Yellow Ribbon and Go Yellow this February and would like businesses and individuals to take part to support them.
Vanessa Howden-Smith from Lewis Manning said, “The idea is to raise awareness of our Charity and what we do for the community. We are inviting individuals and businesses to support us by giving us a donation in exchange for a yellow ribbon, to which they could then add a message or the name of someone whom they have loved and lost. It doesn’t have to be someone Lewis-Manning has cared for.”
Individuals can obtain the yellow ribbons from any Lewis-Manning shop, or you can call Fundraising on 01202 708470 who will write and display the ribbon for you.
Vanessa adds, “If you are a business who want to take part then we need you to pop up a tree, create a window or a wall to entice your customers to purchase ribbons. We are also encouraging businesses to get their teams fundraising for us and set aside a day, a week or a month supporting our Tie A Yellow Ribbon and/or Go Yellow for February theme. Anything from baking yellow cakes, dressing in yellow clothes or sticking a sunflower in your hair, the options are endless. You could even dye your beard yellow, don yellow Marigolds or perhaps wear a yellow wig. Every penny raised means so much to us and to the people we care for who are living with a life-limiting illness.
The more people in Dorset who join in with our Tie A Yellow Ribbon and Go Yellow for February will help our fundraising efforts for 2019, and also assist us in raising the awareness of Lewis-Manning Hospice.”
