CAN YOU RAISE THE BUNTING?

Take advantage of your extra long Bank Holiday weekend and make moments that matter for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Platinum Jubilee is the perfect opportunity to get your friends or neighbours together and raise money for your local hospitals. Bristol, Weston and the surrounding villages have great local community connections, with Bristol the first city to create a play street policy.

If you’re already planning to celebrate, why not go that little bit above and beyond by adding on a collection for Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity at the same time.

OUR TOP TIPS TO CELEBRATE

  • Make it a ‘bring your own food’ event and encourage everyone to get involved
  • Invite people face to face if you can
  • Ask your friends and neighbours to help out by bringing tables and chairs and cleaning up afterwards
  • Click here for loads of great advice on street parties 
  • Check your local council for their advice on street parties
  • Fancy something smaller? Host a garden party and invite friends round for a picnic or BBQ.

FUNDRAISING AT YOUR CELEBRATION

  • Keep it simple and ask everyone to make a donation to attend
  • Create a collection on JustGiving and print a QR page linking to your fundraising page
  • Hold a raffle – ask local shops and neighbours to donate prizes
  • Bake sales and refreshment stands are always a winner at these events
  • What about some street games such as ring toss or skittles? Charge £1 a go or make it into a tournament. People always love a compeition!

However you're celebrating, your fundraising will bring moments of joy, comfort and hope to those who need it most at our hospitals.
