Festive fundraising will make a difference this Christmas

We are offering a range of festive fundraising opportunities to help people in the local community get into the Christmas spirit and raise money to support our services for local patients and families.

Christmas is always an important time of the year for fundraising but with the coronavirus restrictions, many of our usual community fundraising activities are not able to go ahead in the normal way.

We've been working hard to adapt ​our festive programme so people can get involved and enjoy some festive cheer while raising money to keep Renne Grove nurses caring throughout Christmas.

The Rudolph Run usually takes place in St Albans every year, but this year the run will be virtual. This means families can complete a 1.5K or 5K route anywhere they like during December, spreading seasonal cheer with their Christmas outfits and raising money for Rennie Grove. Sign up before 18 December here.

There is also the chance to join in with Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 11 December.

Simply make a £2 donation on ​our website, encourage family, friends and work colleagues to do the same and share pictures on social media tagging in Rennie Grove.

To round off a day of festive fun, join the Christmas virtual bingo night on Friday 11 December to win Christmas prizes for the whole family. Tickets cost £7.50 and can be purchased here. And look out for our Big Quiz of the Year being made available for a £10 donation, to host your own quiz night with family and friends this festive holiday. There are 6 rounds of questions on all things festive and 2020!

“It’s been a difficult year for fundraising and with the number of patients we are caring for increasing sharply, we’d like to encourage the local community to get involved and raise as much money as possible to help us continue to be here for everyone who needs us. Thank you.”
