New Fun way To Help Support The Hospice
Share your smile with the world to make someone happy and help raise £25,000 for Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
The Scunthorpe Telegraph and TurnerWarran, together with Towergate Charitable Fund, Edge Interactive and the 20-21 Visual Arts Centre have teamed up with Lindsey Lodge as supporters of their ‘Smile’ campaign. Smile is a fun and easy way to raise money for such a worthy cause. We are asking for smiles from businesses, schools, dental practices, well-known faces and business leaders in North Lincolnshire. From April 12 until May 21 all you have to do is donate an image of your smile, together with a minimum cash donation of £2 for each smile. All smiles can then be viewed at the 20-21 Visual Arts Centre from May 24 to June 7.
During 2008 it will cost Lindsey Lodge £1,800,000 to provide free special care free to patients with a life-threatening illness and their families. To help fund these costs, Lindsey Lodge relies heavily on the generosity of local people, organisations and businesses, and this is where you come in! Through the Smile campaign, we aim to help Lindsey Lodge Hospice raise at least £25,000 in one go, as well as raising much needed awareness of the hospice and the brilliant support it provides.
It couldn’t be easier to take part. Take a photo of your smile; the more creative, the more it will stand out at the exhibition; and send in your donation via the smile website www.smile4us.org.uk or at smile days at supermarkets and shopping centres!
Join in the Scunthorpe Telegraph Smile Day on Monday, April 14 between 11am and 1pm, at the Scunthorpe Telegraph offices at Park Square, Laneham Street, when people can come into the office with a picture of their smile and make a £2 donation to the hospice.
Schools, organisations and businesses can get involved by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or by telephoning (01724) 843731.
