Family event raises thousands for hospice

Laura Kearns 17th Jul, 2018

FAMILIES enjoyed all the fun of the fair to raise money for The Shakespeare Hospice.

The hospice’s Summer Fete raised some £3,000 through stalls, music performances, treasure hunts, complimentary therapies, a Punch and Judy show and pony rides around the Shottery site.

Charity spokeswoman Karen Davies said: “We are so grateful for all the support of our volunteers and fundraisers who put in so much hard work to the Summer Fete.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to talk to families and patients about the hospice services and I want to thank all the volunteers who continue to support us and help put on these events.”

The hospice supports around 1,000 a year suffering with life-limiting illnesses.
