Community invited to get together for hospice care

Members of the community are being invited to enjoy an afternoon get together in aid of St Richard’s Hospice.

MaryAnne and Bill Lane, who live in Bredon’s Norton, near Tewkesbury, are organising the event in memory of Mrs Lane’s sister, Sally Pasquill – who was cared for by St Richard’s.

The family event, titled A Day to Remember, will be held at Bredon Village Hall on Sunday, 12th November, from 2pm to 4.30pm, and is part of the Big Get Together – a national campaign raising money for local hospice care.

Guests can enjoy tea, cake, a tombola and raffle – which will boast plenty of prizes – while raising money for the Worcester-based hospice.

Sally’s husband Paul Pasquill, who is helping organise the event, said: “Sally devoted so much of her life to the care of others, doing all she could to alleviate their suffering and give comfort in their darkest hours.

Big Get Together“It was fitting that she too should receive such tender care, first at home by the wonderful St Richard’s Community Nurses and finally in the hospice itself.

“She and her family really appreciated this and she would have been so appreciative of our fundraising event and the much needed support it will provide to others.”

Anyone can hold a Big Get Together – from organising a coffee morning, curry night, or your usual Friday evening at the pub, the campaign is a simple way to help raise money for hospice care.
