Inspirational speaker lined-up for hospice event

12th June 2018

A motivational speaker whose life was changed by the consequences of a single punch will appear at a hospice event.

St Richard’s Hospice is holding a breakfast event at Sixways Stadium in Hindlip, near Worcester, on Friday, 29th June – featuring Jamie Denyer.

After his beloved nephew was killed by just one punch in 2012, Mr Denyer set out to educate against violence, while helping others make better lives for themselves.

The speaker has given motivational talks in prisons, schools, businesses and more, with a recording of his TEDx talk viewed more than 55,000 times online.

Ria Simons, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We are very excited to welcome Jamie along to our breakfast event – it’s sure to be an inspiring morning you won’t want to miss.

“Money raised by this event will help support us to continue providing our free hospice care to patients and their families. We hope to see you there.”

“I’m very excited to be speaking at this event to help raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice. Giving back and helping is a massive part of my moral compass.  This will be a talk that attendees would never have experienced before!”

The event begins at 7.45am for an 8am start. Tickets are £25 per person and include a full English breakfast.

The event is sponsored by Knight Frank.
