Guests are invited to join a city-based hospice for its festive lunch and shopping event this Christmas.

The St Richard’s Hospice Festive Lunch takes place on Thursday, December 8 at The Bank House Hotel in Bransford, near Worcester.

Alongside a three-course lunch, guests can do a spot of Christmas shopping as there will be an array of stalls hosted by Worcestershire businesses.

Sofia Gunster, Fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: “We love hosting our Festive Lunch as it always gets us in the Christmas spirit.

“It’s great to see so many fantastic local businesses in one place, offering our guests the perfect shopping experience. And, there will be a delicious lunch too!

“What’s more, this event raises important funds for St Richard’s which will help us continue to care for patients and their loved ones across Worcestershire.”

The event begins at 10.30am, with lunch served at 12.30pm followed by tea and coffee. There will also be festive entertainment during the day provided by Joseph Morris, a singer songwriter from Worcester.

The sponsor for the Festive Lunch is Knight Frank.

Shelley Stephenson, Associate at Knight Frank, said: “We have been very proud to support this tremendous charity for a number of years now.

“It offers an outstanding service and, having visited the hospice, it is such a positive environment for the patients and families they support.

“The fundraising team do a great job raising funds to help maintain and extend the superb level of service.”

Tickets for the Festive Lunch are £36 per adult, and tables of eight or 10 are available. To book tickets visit www.strichards.org.uk/event/festive-lunch
