The Norfolk Hospice is asking supporters to get together with colleagues and join their #HospiceBlueCrew to raise funds for the Hillington based charity.

The fundraising team are asking people to hold a BLUE themed dress down day in workplaces, schools or social groups to raise much-needed funds for The Norfolk Hospice.

Members of the public are encouraged to wear items of blue, dress up in blue fancy dress, dye their hair, or wear a blue wig in exchange for a donation to the Hospice.

Lindsey Atkin, Community Fundraising Manager said, “It can be as simple as wearing a blue flower or ribbon in your hair or people can go all out and dress from head to toe to blue. We want people to wear our Hospice colour with pride to show their support and to help us to provide care for people living in the local community living with life-shortening illnesses”

Blue was chosen as the Hospice’s colours a long time ago to represent the big blue skies of Norfolk and the beautiful blue sea of the Norfolk coast.

The Fundraising Team have loads of materials available to help anyone interested in getting involved including posters, collection buckets, balloons and banners. The team are also encouraging everyone taking part to share their pictures on social media #HospiceBlueCrew.

Anyone interested in having a Blue Crew day can register their day here or by calling the team on 01485 601701.
