Wear it Festive

Make a difference this Christmas

It’s time to dust off the old Christmas jumper, socks or other classy Christmas clothing and join us in showing your support for Peace Hospice Care. Throughout December we’re encouraging you, our festive supporters, to add some Christmas cheer to your workplace, school or at social get-togethers.

You can wear anything festive. A classic Christmas jumper, an elegant elf hat, some simple Santa socks, or Rudolph the Reindeer slippers. The list is endless!

All we ask is that everyone who takes part donates £2 to take part. However, there are lots of ways to add some extra fun into your Wear it Festive day.

  • Hold a bake sale with a prize for the most festively decorated cake.
  • Sell handmade Christmas cards or decorations.
  • Wear it at the gym! Why not ask your Spinning class if they’re prepared to do a class in a Christmas jumper? Just make sure there’s plenty of water on hand!
  • You could ask for a donation to see the office manager dressed as Santa all day, or if you are at school you could ask the head teacher to deliver the assembly dressed as a Christmas pudding.
  • Ask your sports team to play a match in matching team Christmas jumpers or Santa hats.
  • Don’t leave your pets out! You could hold a festive fundraising sponsored dog walk with other dog lovers in your neighbourhood.
  • Organise a Christmas themed quiz. Who knows the most about Christmas number ones and Eastenders Christmas specials?
  • Deck your desk! Whether you’re at home, in the office or at school, break out the baubles and hold a ‘Deck Your Desk’ competition. Charge a small entry fee and be sure to vote for your favourite festive makeover.

We’d love to see what you get up to so please share photos from your festive celebrations. You can send them to us or share them on social media with the hashtag #TeamPeace

Your donations have a direct impact on the care we provide at the Hospice. For example:

  • £5 could cover the cost of half an hour’s healthcare assistant time in our Inpatient Unit to support our patients’ emotional and practical care needs
  • £10 could pay for half an hour of specialist nursing care in a patient’s own home, through our Hospice at Home service
  • £50 could cover more than an hour of medical consultant time to ensure our patients’ medical and care needs are met
  • £100 could pay for five hours of specialist nursing care and support from a senior staff nurse
