Local charity is asking us to Join Together this January

December 2020


Many of us haven’t been able to see our friends and family this year so a local charity has come up with a number of ways for us all to meet virtually and support their vital work in our community.

Join Together January brings a new idea each week for family and friends to come together and keep in touch while supporting end of life care across Swindon and north east Wiltshire.

Kicking off on 4 January, local people will be encouraged to host a virtual quiz and the charity has everything you need to run your own event over Zoom with family and friends – no Google allowed! Throughout the month you could also enjoy a night of bingo, a murder mystery evening and, to end, a cookery Masterclass with head chef Dan from Dan’s at the Crown, Marlborough for you, your family and friends to enjoy.

Abby Benson, community and events fundraiser at the hospice, said: “We know it’s been really difficult over the last year for people to see each other and share special moments so we wanted to create a way for family and friends to come together and share some fun to start the new year in a positive way. We’ve come up with four ways that people can do that enabling them to do something each week which brings them together to catch up and help raise a little money for the hospice too.”

Everything you need to create your fun evening can be found on the charity’s website page. All the hospice asks is that you set up an online fundraising page that people can donate to when taking part if they wish.
