Sam, Jo, Paige and Tom from Pace Health Club at the Radisson Blu Hotel will be wearing their onesies for St Clare Hospice.


Health club workers at the Radisson Blu Hotel at Stansted Airport will be swapping their usually active lifestyles to turn couch potato in support of St Clare Hospice’s Onesie Week.

Comfy, cosy and perfect for chilling out on the sofa, colleagues at Pace Health Club will be donning their loungewear as part of the fundraising initiative, which runs from February 10-16.

They will be among local schools, playgroups, youth clubs and workplaces all doing something one-derful to raise vital income for the Hospice, which supports people with terminal and life-limiting illnesses.

St Clare community fundraiser Sarah Calder said: “There’s still time to sign up for Onesie Week so if your school, club or organisation would like to join in the fun and be one of us, then please call our fundraising team today.”
