24-Hour Danceathon for Oaktober
Mornington Court Cinnamon Care in New Milton is the latest local business to announce it will be taking part in Oakhaven Hospice’s brand-new and exciting fundraising initiative, OAKtober.
On Friday 20th October, Mornington Court Homes Admissions Advisor, Lisa Walsh, will be starting a 24-hour Danceathon to raise money for the hospice. Follow Lisa's Danceathon live at facebook.com/MorningtonCourtCare. If you would like to spur her on to keeeeep dancing, please find Lisa's Justgiving page here.
Lisa will be joined at Mornington Court throughout the day and night by a number of local VIPs as she dances non-stop for 24 hours. The event will be streamed live on social media for those who want to follow the action from home.
In addition to the danceathon, Mornington Court will be hosting a number of other fundraising events during the month of ‘OAKtober’, including Kara-OAK-e and a staff step challenge.
‘OAKtober’ is Oakhaven’s latest fundraising initiative where individuals, businesses, schools and community groups can take on any fundraising challenge or organise any fundraising event during the month of October to raise money for Oakhaven Hospice. Ideas could include a bake sale, taking on a physical challenge or simply taking part in the ‘Wear It Green’ Day on Friday 20th October.
All funds raised by OAKtober will support Oakhaven Hospice’s free-of-charge services for patients and their loved ones at the most difficult of times, both in the hospice and in homes throughout the New Forest, Totton and Waterside communities.
Natalie Hutchins, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Oakhaven Hospice, said, “We are delighted that local businesses and organisations are joining our fundraising month OAKtober, with so many original ideas. There is still time for other local businesses, schools and organisations to join the OAKtober fun. Every penny raised will help Oakhaven to make every moment matter for patients and their loved ones throughout our communities.”
