Launching St George’s Day: St George’s Chill-Out Challenges

Launching today – on St George’s Day – we are challenging our local community to help us make the final push to open the doors of a special ‘chill-out’ area in St George’s Hospital for Teenagers with cancer.
FACE has been supporting the development of a special unit in St Georges that will uplift the experiences of children and young adults while they are in hospital being treated for cancer, by creating a special zone for relaxation, communication, and enjoyment. Plans are advanced, but there remains a serious shortfall in funding:
We want to help St Georges Hospital fight Cancer, by combining the resources of Furzedown Community Network (FCN) and Furzedown Annual Charity Events (FACE) and demonstrate what a caring and brilliant community we live in. By uniting efforts from individuals, families, schools, organisations, and enterprises in and around Furzedown we can make such a difference and help make thiorganisations,s become a reality.

What’s YOUR Chill-out Challenge?

We’d love to hear from any schools, societies or local business running events, or from any individual who is planning a fundraising challenge, or could help organise a street party- you would be part of opening the doors to the St George’s Chill-out room this summer!
  • by organising a fundraising event on behalf of FACE & St George’s
  • by donating PRIZES
  • by supporting us at local events such as our stall at the Furzedown Big Day Out on 18 June, our raffle, Garden Gig on 24 June and Quiz Night in October
  • or with a personal cash donation
