Love Your Home-Start Day 2024

Celebrate with Us!

Join us in February for our annual Love Your Home-Start (LYHS) Day, a special occasion where we celebrate the incredible work our charity does in the community. This is your chance to show your love for Home-Start and the dedicated volunteers who support local families facing challenging times.

As a self-funded charity, reaching our fundraising target is crucial to continuing our mission of providing free, friendly, confidential, and compassionate help to families in Royston and Buntingford and surrounding areas, and the SG8 villages of South Cambridgeshire. Home-Start has been a pillar of support since 1983, and your involvement can make a significant impact.

How You Can Get Involved

There are countless ways to support our fundraising efforts on Love Your Home-Start Day. Here are some ideas for you, your colleagues, family, and friends:

  • Wear our Colours: Show your support by wearing our signature colours – purple and orange – or anything heart-themed (or red) for the entire day.
  • Host a Themed Event: Arrange a ‘LYHS themed’ tea party, a ‘wear a silly hat/tee-shirt’ day at work, or even a ‘dress-down’ day.
  • Personal Challenges: Take on a personal challenge, whether it’s running, walking, cycling, swimming, or creating “run art” with apps like Strava.
