September is a month when many of us start to enjoy more nights in after a summer of having nights out. It’s a month when many of us try to catch up with friends and family who we’ve not seen over the summer time, and it’s a month when your nights in can sometimes turn into nights outside, when you can still enjoy the longer evenings before the chilly winter kicks in. September is also blood cancer and childhood cancer awareness month, a time to show support for some of the best and most needed projects offering care and treatment for families affected by cancer across the globe.
This September, why don’t you organise a Big Night In with friends or family to help save lives and give hope to families affected by cancer?
What will it be? It’s your call! It could be a pamper evening, a cards night, an open mike night, a special dinner, comedy evening or home cinema time. You decide!
Raise money while you raise the roof or raise a laugh…under your own roof, in your favourite pub, club or location of your choice.
You decide how up want to raise money. You could charge an entrance fee, ask for a donation to take part, include a raffle or an auction. You set your own target of what you want to raise, and Love Hope Strength will aim to help you smash it!
Your Big Night In will help make a big difference! Since LHS was established almost fifteen years ago, thousands of people have taken part in hikes and events across the UK, in the USA, South America, Africa and Asia in the name of Love Hope Strength, collectively raising over £1 million. All monies raised through the Big Night In will help fund new equipment in six different Cancer Care Units in the UK and in 4 hospitals serving underprivileged communities in Africa and Asia.
“I’ve participated in so many LHS events and activities since I first got involved in the charity over ten years ago. The LHS challenges I’ve taken part in have made me so glad to be alive! We remember our loved ones, we show thanks and above all, we have fun. I’m so proud of what we’ve all achieved so far, supporting cancer care programmes in hospitals and in community settings across the globe, and I’m so grateful for the friendships made through LHS. I’m looking forward to organising my own Big Night In in September, getting more of my friends involved in saving lives. Most importantly, I’m looking forward to playing a part in helping families affected by cancer. This September, I’m planning to be saving lives, one party at a time!”
