Celebrate the Season with Local Hospice

30th October 2014

Local residents are invited to join St Richard’s Hospice as it kicks off its Christmas celebrations with a Snowdrop Ball.

Tickets are still available for the hospice’s annual Snowdrop Ball, to be held on Saturday 22nd November at Worcester Sixways.

Guests will be treated to some special St Richard’s hospitality and enjoy a delicious three course meal followed by entertainment from The Soul Trader. Guests can also dance the night away with a Midlands Leisure disco, bid for one of the many fantastic auction prizes on offer or try their luck in the St Richard’s raffle and casino.

Rachel Jones, Fundraising Manager at St Richard’s Hospice, said; “This is always a fabulous night with everyone dressing up and looking glamorous.  Many of our guests enjoyed the evening so much last year they booked early to make sure they didn’t miss out! There are just a few spaces available, and we are looking forward to another spectacular evening full of seasonal sparkle. This is the perfect way to join us as we celebrate our achievements during this, our 30th anniversary year of compassionate care.

Mrs. Jones added; “We are very grateful to Britannia Bennetts of Malvern and Western Power Distribution who are again sponsoring the event and helping us kick off our festive season with a bang! We would also like to thank everyone who has donated items for the auction and raffle. The money raised by the event will be used to ensure that St Richard’s Hospice can continue to care for patients with life-threatening illnesses and support their families.”

Tickets cost £50 each, with tables of 10 available. The evening starts at 7pm with welcome drinks in The Pitchview Suite, Worcester Sixways. To find out more information, to donate a prize for the auction or raffle, or to book tickets please contact the Fundraising Team on 01905 763963.

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
