Guests are being invited to attend a hospice event celebrating the life of Scottish poet Robert Burns.
The St Richard’s Hospice Burns Night will be held at The Abbey Hotel in Great Malvern on Saturday, January 26.
There will be a three-course dinner, customary toast to the haggis, a piper, toastmaster and a ceilidh with The Whole Caboodle band.
Ria Simons, hospice fundraiser, said: “We are really excited to hold our Burns Night celebrations once again, upholding this tradition in style.
“After Christmas is over, it’s heartening to know the festivities aren’t quite finished – and this event is such a fun way to brighten up the winter.
“We hope to see many of you there, helping us to raise a fantastic amount to support the hospice’s care to patients and their loved ones.”
Event sponsor Shelton & Lines Estate Agents has opened a new branch in Great Malvern – close to the venue for the Burns Night celebrations.
Richard Shelton, a Director at Shelton & Lines, said: “We have been made to feel very welcome in Malvern since opening our new estate agency office – and when we discovered St Richard’s Hospice was holding a charity evening at the historic Abbey Hotel, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to do our bit and help support this amazing cause.”
In the past, this event has raised thousands for the hospice’s free care to patients living with life-limiting illnesses, their loved ones and bereaved people across Worcestershire.
At the hospice’s event in 2017, more than 160 people gathered to celebrate the evening – raising £9,000 for its care.
