Purple people were spotted all over Ayrshire on Friday (11th October) as individuals, groups and businesses hosted purple events for Go Purple, a major fundraiser for the Ayrshire Hospice and part of this year’s Hospice Care Week (7th – 13th October).

Many schools and businesses across Ayrshire joined in the purple fun on Friday. 

Ron Swanson, Assistant Fundraising Manager at the Ayrshire Hospice said “Huge thanks go to the people of North Ayrshire who once again pulled out all the purple stops on Friday 11th October in aid of the hospice. We are so grateful for your support, creativity and energy. This is the 8th year we have celebrated Go Purple and we hope it’s the best year yet! Funds are coming in thick and fast so watch this space for the final total raised across Ayrshire.”

Go Purple funds can be submitted by handing them in to the fundraising office, 29 Miller Road, Ayr KA7 2AX or send a cheque payable to “Ayrshire Hospice”. Please mark all funds submitted with the heading “Go Purple”.

Go Purple has raised over £144,000 over the past seven years thanks to the generous support and commitment of communities across Ayrshire.
