Rock The Blue! 20th – 26th June 2022

ROCK THE BLUE IS BACK!

After all the BLUEming fun we had in 2021, we are excited to tell you that Rock the Blue is back again as we celebrate Children’s Hospice Week 2022.

Children’s Hospice Week is a dedicated awareness and fundraising week for children’s hospices across the UK and this year we have again decided to mark the occasion with our special campaign #RockTheBlue.

From dress up days and danceathons, to blue bake sales, raffles and even a blue treasure hunt, we had such a blast in 2021 and we could not have done it without all our amazing local businesses, schools and supporters.

Why blue?

Blue was 8 year old Alexander Devine’s favourite colour and along with his favourite animal, the dolphin, it forms part of our logo; a reminder of how this very special boy inspired our charity and without whom we would not be here today providing specialist care and support to so many children and families.

So in Alexander’s honour we’re encouraging everyone to join the fun and #RockTheBlue with your most imaginative blue-themed challenge!

Registration for our 2022 campaign will be open soon. In the meantime please email fundraising@alexanderdevine.org for more information or to register you interest.

Your Challenge. Your Way!

From dying your hair blue, baking blue cakes, wearing blue fancy dress or even listening to Blue for a whole 24 hours there are so many ways you can get involved with our #RockTheBlue campaign this year- it’s your challenge, your way!

Whether you rock the blue solo, take part with friends and family or even get your school or work involved, we’ll be here every step of the way, with your free fundraising resources and dedicated support.

Need our help?

The word hospice should not seem scary and getting support from us doesn’t have to mean a child’s death is imminent. Helping to enrich the lives of the children and their families is at the heart of our service, our end of life and bereavement support is just a part of what we do.

Our children’s hospice service covers the whole of Berkshire and into surrounding counties. Anyone can make a referral to Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service and if you think your child may be eligible for our services, please do get in touch.

26 incredible volunteers 💪
460 🎄 trees collected
...and over £8,500 raised! 🙌

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone that generously supported our Christmas Tree Recycling service this year. In particular, our amazing team of volunteers who braved the wet and cold weather to collect trees from people's homes and take them to be recycled.

All the trees were taken to Berkshire College of Agriculture for recycling into chippings and are already being used with their zoo animals on site.

As well as being good for the environment, we also love that our recycling service enables us to support other local charities. As part of our service, which is run in partnership with JustHelping, we are able to nominate a local charity to receive 10% of our donations. We are delighted to choose 18th Maidenhead Scouts, who are always incredibly supportive of our charity.

What a wonderful way to kick-start 2022! 💙💛
