Get set for barn dance!

One of Worcester’s best and liveliest ceilidh bands will be playing at a special barn dance event next month.

St Richard’s Hospice will welcome The Whole Caboodle on Saturday 16 June for a fun night of dancing. The lively band is based in Worcester and play traditional and contemporary folk dance tunes and call dances from all over Britain and beyond. They also have a selection of classic pop hits from the sixties and seventies so that party-goers can have a freestyle bop too.

The event will take place on Saturday 16 June between 7.00pm and 11.00pm at Churchfields Farm, Droitwich. Book your tickets

Rachel Jones, Fundraising Manager at St Richard’s Hospice said : “This event offers the chance to take your partner by the hand and enjoy a fabulous night of dancing! And it is all for a good cause; all money raised will go towards the care we provide to both patients and their families.”

Tickets cost £20.00 per head and include a home-made burger, cheese platter and ice cream.

The event is kindly sponsored by the St Richard’s Hospice Business Patrons.

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative and end of life care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their loved ones. Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,300 patients, family members and bereaved people in Worcestershire.

The hospice strives to provide the best medical, practical, emotional and social support they can to help people live life to the fullest, as independently as they can, for as long as they can. They care for people with a range of illnesses including heart failure, Parkinson’s, and motor neurone disease as well as cancer.
St Richard’s is an independent charity and relies on donations for three quarters of its annual £8.8m income with the remainder from the NHS.

St Richard’s has launched the Build 2020 Appeal which aims to raise the final £1.4m needed to build a bigger hospice, enabling more patients and families to be cared for in Worcestershire. The total cost for expanding and redeveloping the existing building in Wildwood Drive, Worcester, is £5.3m.
