Win a Duvet Day new for 2023

Lucky staff members from Hartlepool workplaces could win an extra day off as part of a new fundraiser in partnership between Alice House Hospice and local businesses.

The new Win a Duvet Day campaign is sponsored by Direct Beds Hartlepool and is a prize draw taking place throughout February, with one winner from each place of work receiving an extra day’s holiday.

Hospice Community Fundraiser Janice Forbes explained how it works; “This is a simple way for companies to support local Hospice care without incurring any additional expense. We asking businesses to hold a raffle for one of their staff members to win an additional day off, it’s a bit of fun and a morale booster for the dark winter months. All of the money raised from the raffles will go directly towards funding our services.”

Ian Heseltine, manager of Direct Beds said “We are pleased to sponsor this event and help to raise money for a vital local cause; I’m sure it will be popular and wish all entrants the best of luck – I  hope they get to enjoy a lovely day at home.”

The first company to sign up for the appeal was regular charity partner Orangebox Training Solutions Ltd. Orangebox CEO, Simon Corbett has worked closely with Alice House for around six years and immediately pledged his support; “This is right up our street, the staff at Orangebox are already warm supporters and this is will be a nice in-house competition for us all. Having visited the Hospice many times, I know first-hand how much of a difference their services make to local families as well as the enormous fundraising challenge they face in these difficult times. I would encourage as many businesses as possible to get involved and give something back to the community.”

To take part in Win a Duvet Day, business leaders can contact Janice on 01429 855536 / who will provide a fundraising pack including posters, stationery,  email footers and everything else needed for the draw.
