PJ Day fun takes off for Hospice

19th February 2020

Hundreds of people from schoolchildren to firefighters, shop staff and care workers, have so far taken part in a huge PJ Day fundraiser – in support of the night nurses of Princess Alice Hospice.

And there’s still loads of time to take part!

Five primary schools signed up to wear their pyjamas for a day before half-term, as part of the Hospice’s bid to raise funds during its spring campaign – Care Through The Night.

Supporters are being encouraged to don PJs and dressing gowns on days throughout February and March. A suggested donation of £1 each will help achieve the fundraising target.

Hospice Partnerships Fundraiser Eilís Kiernan said: “Our night nurses provide so much more than medical care. They help support patients and families when they need it most, in their own homes.

“Our spring appeal aims to raise £54,000 to help ensure that our night nurses can continue to deliver care each and every night.

“We’re encouraging families, colleagues, schools, clubs, pubs, and teams of all kinds to hold a PJ Day for Princess Alice Hospice. It’s simple, easy – and lots of fun.

There is a dedicated webpage to the PJ Day event – where you can download a fundraising pack full of ideas and tips to make your PJ Day a fantastic success.
