Handbags and Gladrags sale

22nd March 2016

A “Handbags and Gladrags” quality nearly new clothes sale is being held this weekend in aid of St Richard’s Hospice.

Three hospice supporters, Sarah Darwent, Caroline Sutton and Jane Whittaker have arranged the fundraising event, which will be held on Saturday 26th March from 9.30am to 12.30pm at Hanley Swan Village Hall.

The fashion sale will be held in conjunction with the Hanley Swan Cafe Market where a great selection of local produce and goods for sale can be found. Visitors can also indulge their sweet tooth at the event’s cafe which will be offering hot drinks and beautiful homemade cakes.

In addition, there will be a raffle to raise money to help the hospice continue to care for patients with life-limiting illnesses and to support their loved ones.

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.
