Have a feel good Feb in aid of hospice

by gemmamelling

Our local hospice is asking people in Lowton and Golborne to complete a 28 day challenge throughout February to raise much-needed funds.

Wigan and Leigh Hospice has launched ‘Feel Good February’ to encourage residents to do something good for 28 days to help the Hindley-based charity which has seen income drop significantly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Christine Edwardson, Community Fundraiser, said: “Everyone is feeling a bit fed up at the moment so we wanted to set up a challenge in which people not only do something good for the hospice, but something which will leave them feeling good too.

“You could give up a bad habit, such as smoking, for 28 days or give up takeaways for the month. Alternatively, you could choose to start up a good habit, like going for a walk every day whatever the weather or cooking healthy meals for the full month. It really is up to you what you choose to do for Feel Good February.

“The last 12 months or so have been incredibly difficult for all of us which is why we need your support more than ever. We hope that through Feel Good February people will find that by doing something good they will feel good and we’ll all get through this together.”

Feel Good February: the 28 day challenge begins on Monday, February 1 and ends on Sunday, February 28.

Everyone participating is asked to sign-up online at the hospice’s website. All those who take part will receive a certificate.
