Get into Christmas spirit at our Festive Lunch

8th November 2018

Guests are invited to join a hospice for its annual fundraising lunch event this Christmas.

The St Richard’s Hospice Festive Lunch takes place on Thursday, December 6 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 businesses from across the area.

Kelly Johns, hospice Fundraiser, said: “This event is always a fun, festive afternoon out in the run up to Christmas.

“What’s more, every penny raised on the day will help support the care we provide to people living with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

“We hope to see you for an afternoon of Christmas shopping and lunch – while helping us continue the services of St Richard’s.”

Lunch begins at 12.30pm and includes a complimentary glass of wine or orange juice.

After lunch, there will be tea, coffee and mince pies. There will also be light, festive entertainment during the day.

This event is sponsored by Bodega Womenswear and Knight Frank.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate.

  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
