New date for Golf Day 2020

Bury Hospice is pleased to announce we have found a new date for the Bury Hospice Golf Day event which had to be deferred from its usual slot in May because of the pandemic and this new date is Thursday 1st of October 2020.

We are delighted Bury Golf Club have allowed us to find a rearranged date at their excellent facility and are thrilled that NFU Mutual have agreed to once more renew their fine association with this event as the main sponsor.

After consultation with Bury Golf Club, they have introduced certain measures to comply with the current situation. But fundamentally this will not alter the composition of the event that all have become accustomed to and have enjoyed.

Registration fee is £250 for a team of 4 which includes playing fees, two course meal and wine.

Retail Update – July 2020

 

 

 

 

Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding whilst our charity shops have been closed. We are starting to open up again! Following recent government announcements, we have opened our Prestwich shop, Furniture Showroom and Donation Centre from Monday 15th June. We will keep you updated as we re-open the rest of our shops.

Opening times (please make sure you check our social media for DAILY UPDATES on opening times at the Donation Centre as when we hit capacity for donations we have to close and we wouldn’t like anyone to have a wasted trip):

  • Prestwich shop : Monday to Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Donation Centre, Unit 13 : Monday to Friday 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
  • Furniture Showroom : Monday to Friday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Millgate Boutique (Minden) : Monday to Saturday 9:30 am – 4:30 pm 

We know lots of you have items ready to donate and for that, we are truly grateful. We will need your donations, and your custom, more than ever.

We anticipate being very busy initially, and so we will need to accept donations in a very controlled manner. Our Donation Centre at Dale Industrial Estate in Radcliffe will be accepting donations from 15th June between the hours of 9 am and 1 pm, Monday to Friday only. Please note that we have limited space so we may close early if we hit capacity. Keep an eye on our social media for updates.

Also, we will not be accepting donations at any of our other shops until further notice as we are unable to implement the required social distancing measures. Our collection and delivery service will continue to be suspended until further notice.

We will also be quarantining donations for 72 hours before they are sorted, meaning a lack of storage space is likely to be an issue.

One big thing you can do before donating is check we can take your goods. We’ve put together checklists below to help you help us. This will help us save time and cut down on waste, meaning more time and money can go towards supporting patients and those close to them.

Watch this space! We will post more updates very soon about when you can shop, donate and volunteer – as well as, crucially, how we will be keeping you all safe. Thank you again for your patience.

Dance With Me Tonight Lockdown Challenge

Take on the Lockdown Dance challenge in your front room….

…..and invite all of the family to learn a dance routine!

Bury Hospice has suspended all of its fundraising activities and events at this current time. In response, and to help their hospice, a group of locally based dance teachers have performed a two minute dance routine to stage a fun virtual fundraiser for Bury Hospice…and invite you to get on your dancing shoes!

Take on the Lockdown Dance challenge in your front room and invite all of the family to learn a dance routine, which will be taught through a sequence of six short videos featuring our dance teachers (to be accessed below)

Please donate what you can to Bury Hospice at the following online giving page:  lock down dance challenge 

Perhaps you can even film your version of the routine and share it across Bury Hospice’s Facebook page, Twitter feed or Instagram channel. This is because we will be picking the best dances across a range of different categories; plus everyone who participates will be rewarded with an official certificate of completion.

The Bury Hospice Dance With Me Tonight Lockdown Dance challenge: a bit of fun, a chunk of exercise and a big helping hand for Bury Hospice, so please get involved and keep dancing!
