hospicewoottonThe Earl Mountbatten Hospice is hoping to turn the Isle of Wight a glorious hue of sunshine on Friday 12th July for their annual ‘Go Yellow Day’ celebration.

The Hospice Shops will be kitted out in full Yellow regalia and fundraisers across the Island will be holding collections throughout the day. Most of all though Go Yellow Day is about the Island community coming together to take part in some

One of the best things about Go Yellow Day is the amount of businesses that get involved, it’s a really good way to get together with colleagues and have a bit of fun at the end of the week. You can do literally anything to join in, it could be something as simple as all donning a bit of Yellow and stopping to have a coffee morning or cakes together, right through to painting one of your colleagues cars or sitting in a bath full of custard.

hospicetescoConsider holding a Go Yellow Tea @ Three Tea Party in aid of the Hospice – These annual Tea Parties are a great way to get together with friends and family over some relaxing refreshments and cakes. This has become an annual get together to have a sit down with friends, family and colleagues and take a few moments to enjoy each others company and celebrate the good work of the Hospice.

If you don’t fancy organising your own event all you have to do to join in the fun is don some Yellow and make a donation to show your support for the Island’s Hospice, and look out for Go Yellow Events happening in your area.

Fundraising packs for Go Yellow Day and Tea at Three are available now from www.bitly.com/EMHGY.
