Pledge your support: I Am Katharine House
It costs £12,995 every day to run the hospice
What will you be doing to help Katharine House carry on its care in the community this year?
The Adderbury based hospice wants people to pledge their support to them in 2024. This could be as simple as agreeing to put coins in one of the Katharine House collection buckets at an event, visiting a shop, or making a one-off donation. Other options include a number of adrenaline fuelled challenges or options to be more sustainable or get fit in 2024.
In launching the “I Am Katharine House” campaign, the hospice is asking people to visit their website and state what they will be doing for Katharine House in 2024. This will be included on a special pledge page.
Karen Welsh, spokesperson for Katharine House said: “It takes our whole community to keep the hospice going, and everyone who supports us, be it through fundraising, volunteering or working with us, becomes part of the Katharine House family. The ‘I am Katharine House’ campaign aims to encourage more people to join that family.
“It costs £12,995 every day to run Katharine House and every single thing our supporters do, be it big or small, helps us to raise these the vital funds we need to care for people affected by life-limiting illnesses.”
For those looking for an adventurous challenge the hospice is offering people the chance to take part in a host of bucket list activities such as: a 100ft Extreme Abseil off the tallest permanent abseil tower in the world; an adrenaline raising 160ft bungee jump at Bloxham Steam Rally; and an exhilarating skydive through the clouds from 13,000ft!
Other challenges include an extreme bike ride through the Cotswolds as part of Broughton Castle Sportive; the gruelling Blenheim Triathlon; a 100km walk through the picturesque Cotswold villages and a hair-raising hike around some of London’s historic haunts.
