Footballers Kick-Off Festive Fun

Members of Westbury Celtic Tigers/Youth U14s and the Youth Teams’ Manager’s co-workers from Jaguar LandRover Green shift spread some festive cheer to St Richard’s Hospice.


The generous group donated gifts to young people in the St Richard’s Hospice Dragonfly Group for bereaved children.


St Richard’s Head of Family Support, Sarah Popplestone-Helm said, “This is such a delightful and thoughtful donation of presents for the young people in our Dragonfly Group. We are very grateful for the gifts and they will remind the youngsters that other people are thinking about them and their situation this Christmas. ”


St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative care for patients living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and supports their families. Each year the hospice team supports over 2,500 patients and family members in Worcestershire.


Patients are cared for in Day Hospice, the 17-bed In-patient Unit or in their own homes by a specialist professional team as well as many trained volunteers.


In the In-patient Unit, specialist staff are on hand 24 hours a day to manage patients’ symptoms and where, if appropriate, patients may spend the last few days of life in comfort and dignity. St Richard’s is an independent charity and is grateful for all donations to help it to continue its work.
