Jungle Jog aims to be a roaring success for local hospice

Thousands of children across Hull and East Yorkshire will be donning their jungle themed face masks to help support local charity Dove House Hospice this summer by taking part in their Jungle Jog fundraiser.

The Jungle Jog is simply a sponsored walk, run or pounce (or perhaps a combination of all three) and will be promoted to nursery schools and primary schools across the region as an initiative set up by the hospice to help promote health and wellbeing, along with raising awareness and proceeds of their care.

Dan Clipson, Senior Fundraiser at Dove House commented on the appeal, said: “Our Jungle Jog is a great way for children to be engaged with the hospice and learn more about who we are and how we help in the community. Schools enjoy the flexibility of setting the date, distance and location of their Jungle Jog and it is hoped that, collectively, schools across the region will help to raise £30,000 towards our patient care. Many schools are also taking up the opportunity of an assembly so their children know and understand the cause that they are very kindly raising money and awareness for.”

There is no minimum sponsorship requirement. Each and every pound raised will help to ensure Dove House Hospice can continue to provide its specialised care for patients throughout 2023.
