What is Scotland's Hospices Together?
Nine of Scotland’s independent hospices and Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) have come together to form a national partnership to generate support and highlight the important work of hospice care in Scotland.
The partnership involves independent hospices from across Scotland who provide free, person-centred, palliative and end-of-life care and support to more than 20,000 patients and families every year.
We hope that by working together our local message can be heard nationally, helping us to raise the vital funds we all need to support and care for our local communities.
Our next big national fundraising campaign is “Bubble Rush” in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow on Sunday 6th May. The 5k course starts in a sea of bubbles and features four bubble stations along the route with cannons pumping out coloured foam to create a deep bubble bath. The course is family friendly, so you can run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam. Pushchairs and wheelchairs are more than welcome. All of the hospices are involved and are promoting it at a national and local level to engage with new and existing hospice supporters. Bubblers do it for fun with friends and children – and everyone gets a medal at the end!
