Musical evening raises thousands for hospice

Guests attending an evening of music helped raise thousands of pounds to support the work of St Richard’s Hospice.

More than 65 guests attended A Musical Evening in the Great Hall at Birtsmorton Court, Malvern, on Friday, March 6 – raising £3,000 for the charity.

On the night, there was a recital by hospice doctor and pianist Rebecca Watson and singer Rebecca Rudge.

The event was hosted by hospice patron Rosalie Dawes and her husband Nigel Dawes, and was sponsored by Andrew Grant – who is also a patron of the charity.

Marilyn Peachey, from the Fundraising Team at St Richard’s, said: “We were delighted to welcome our guests to enjoy a super evening of music in such special surroundings.

“We are thrilled the event raised so much for St Richard’s Hospice, helping to fund our free, compassionate care to patients and their loved ones.

“Our thanks must go to our wonderful hospice patrons for both hosting and sponsoring the evening; our talented performers who entertained guests so beautifully; and all those who volunteered on the night.”

Alongside a varied programme of music, including both modern and classical pieces, guests enjoyed drinks and canapés as well as being able to take part in a raffle to help raise funds for St Richard’s.
