Antiques expert helps raise hospice cash

Antiques expert and broadcaster Henry Sandon entertained 70 guests with a lively talk at a charity lunch held at Broadway Golf Club.

The event was organised by St Richard’s Hospice patron, Sonia Woolven, and Barry Bovey of the Broadway hospice supporters group and was kindly sponsored by Broadway Financial planning.

The lunch included a talk from Mr Sandon about his career and entertaining stories from over 40 years on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.

The event raised £4129 profit for the Worcestershire hospice.

Tricia Cavell, Fundraising Director said: “The event was such good fun. Henry really entertained us all and the food was delicious. We are so grateful to the Broadway group for their on-going support to St Richard’s.”

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative and end of life care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their loved ones. Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,000 patients, family members and bereaved people in Worcestershire.

The hospice strives to provide the best medical, practical, emotional and social support they can to help people live life to the fullest, as independently as they can, for as long as they can. They care for people with a range of illnesses including heart failure, Parkinson’s, and motor neurone disease as well as cancer.

St Richard’s is an independent charity and is grateful for all donations to help it continue its work.
