Christmas comes to St Richard’s Hospice

The festive decorations are up and St Richard’s Hospice has been filled with yuletide cheer for Christmas.

The award-winning Webbs Garden Centres has donated four real trees to deck the In-patient Unit and reception at the hospice in Wildwood Drive.

Staff and volunteers set straight to decorating the trees when they arrived, giving the hospice a homely, festive feel.

Tricia Cavell, Fundraising Director at St Richard’s, said: “Thank you to Webbs for these wonderful gifts – the trees make the hospice feel so festive and welcoming at this time of year.

“It makes all the difference to patients and their families, helping them to enjoy the Christmas season.”

Webbs has also donated a tree for the hospice’s Carols in the Car Park event on Thursday, 21st December.

Carols in the Car Park is the last event of this year’s Lights of Love campaign, which has seen thousands of names dedicated in memory of loved ones.

Everyone is welcome to the event, which starts from 6pm. For more information about the event visit strichards.org.uk/carols-in-the-car-park/
