Ladies lunch supports hospice

Supporters of St Richard’s Hospice enjoyed a fundraising lunch to help the hospice continue to provide compassionate care for people with life-threatening illnesses.

On Wednesday 22nd April, around 30 ladies joined the hospice for a two course meal and raffle at Buckland Manor, in the Cotswolds, raising £900 towards the cost of patient care.

Buckland Manor is one of the area’s finest manor houses, dating back to medieval times. Ladies attending the lunch not only had the chance to admire the historic manor house, but were also able to explore the beautiful gardens with views of the neighbouring church and surrounding countryside.

The hospice arranges a series of lunch events for ladies, all held at the region’s most stunning locations. The next event is proposed for Wood Norton Hall, in Evesham.

Alison Parkes, Senior Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said; “We’d like to thank everyone who came along to our fundraising lunch, and to the team at Buckland Manor who looked after us so well. Our lunch events are always well attended and we are always thoroughly spoilt by the hospitality and atmosphere at each spectacular venue.”
