January is over and 2018 is now in full swing. What three things do you need to know about February?

Firstly, for all the foodies, February offers the joy of Pancake Day (13), National Pizza Day (9) and Real Bread Week (24 Feb – 4 Mar). Which can be accompanied by an all-you-can-eat buffet for Chinese New Year on 16 February.

Secondly, sport lovers can revel in the rugby 6 Nations Championship starting in February as well as the Winter Olympics, where the big news is Jamaica is sending a women’s bobsleigh team, 30 years after the country’s men made their first historic appearance.

And last, but not least, February is obviously the month of love! To celebrate this we’re asking you to Share The Love with Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. You can do this by volunteering, donating or fundraising for us as well as spreading the word about our fantastic work.

You also can show your love and support for Noah’s Ark by signing up to receive our updates including news about fundraising events and activities, how The Ark build is progressing, and how the funds raised give vital help and support to the children and families we care for. Sign up now here.

We also want to take this opportunity to Share The Love and appreciation we have for our volunteers, fundraisers, corporate supporters and suppliers. We are all immensely grateful for everything you do to help us ensure that more families can share precious moments together.

Whether you’re laying bricks at cost price or running a marathon, if you’ve donated to Give an Hour or you’ve been shaking a bucket at a train station – we salute you!

Look out for our spotlight blogs on some of these groups over the coming month.
