Summer fete raises £2,200 for The Shakespeare Hospice

A SUMMER fete and tea party raised £2,200 for The Shakespeare Hospice.

Locals turned out in force on Saturday June 15 for an afternoon of fun and entertainment including traditional games, a raffle, live music and an array of stalls selling homemade goods.

There were also performances from the Flowers of Ilmington Morris Dancers and Ukesaway – an Alcester-based ukulele group, as well as a demonstration by The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

Hospice spokesperson Bridget Richards said: “We are overwhelmed by the generosity and community spirit shown at our summer fete and tea party. The funds raised will make a significant difference in helping us continue to provide essential care and support to our patients and their loved ones. We offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this event such a memorable and successful day.”

The funds raised will contribute to the hospice’s ongoing efforts to deliver compassionate and high-quality care.

And the hospice is inviting everyone to host their own tea party to bank further funds.
