Coach-loads of support for hospice charity

HOLIDAY-makers were invited to help raise money for Shakespeare’s Hospice.

Johnsons Coaches which has supported the charity for over ten years, took some 500 customers to its brochure launch at the National Memorial Arboretum, the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance in Staffordshire.

The 150-acre site is a tribute to those who have served and continue to serve our country with over 300 memorials, each with a story to be shared.

The event included a charity raffle, which raised £1,130 for the Shottery-based hospice, and a performance from the Alcester Male Voice Choir which sang songs from the First World War.

John Johnson said: “Johnsons are proud to continue its committed relationship with The Shakespeare Hospice which offers incredible care to our local community.

“We would like to thank all our loyal customers who generously helped us raise such an amazing amount in just one day.”
