Due to many of their fundraising activities cancelled as a result of COVID-19, Strathcarron Hospice has organised “Stream for Strathcarron”, an online fundraising campaign with a difference.
The clocks go back this year on Sunday 25th October, meaning Strathcarron nurses will work an extra hour to provide specialist care and support to people living with a life-limiting condition.
“Stream for Strathcarron” asks gamers, streamers and content creators to take on their own nightshift, 12pm on Saturday 24th October – 12pm on Sunday 25th October (split into different “shifts”), and if possible stream their activity via a JustGiving profile.
The original aim was to raise £312 to cover the cost of this extra hour; the JustGiving page reports they have already raised over £1,000. All additional funds raised will be used to fund the Hospice’s services.
Local tattoo studio Blue Lass Tattoo is also taking part, and is encouraging people to donate £5 to their profile to be entered into a prize raffle. Prizes will include:
- free gamer-themed tattoos
- gamer-themed prints
