Last year Go Purple raised over £27,000 thanks to the groups and organisations across Ayrshire that took part. Some held "wear it purple" days, wore purple wigs, held purple ice cream making contests and enjoyed purple themed afternoon teas!  We would love it if you, your workplace or school could take part in Go Purple this year. We want to build as much momentum as possible and would like to invite you to post Go Purple selfies leading up to the event and on the day. You can post pictures on our Facebook page @AyrshireHospice, use #gopurple2018 on Twitter or email photos to community@ayrshirehospice.org. For more purple fundraising ideas and support materials contact the community fundraising team on 01292 288488 or email community@ayrshirehospice.org. Mandy Yule, Chief Executive of the Ayrshire Hospice said: "Go Purple is a fantastic fundraising initiative which unites communities across Ayrshire with everyone getting involved and having fun. The support we get is fantastic and I'd like to encourage everyone to Go Purple in whatever way they like - take pictures and tell us what you're doing!"
