A Motown night held at Bengeworth Club, Evesham, has raised £750 to help St Richard’s Hospice care for patients with life-threatening illnesses and support their families.
The evening, organised by Dianne Gardner, Paul and Kim Mcloughlin, was set up in memory of close friend Steve Metrovich who was cared for by the hospice.
Guests enjoyed the nostalgic sounds of Jimmy Mack, a Drifters tribute band. The Motown night was kindly hosted by Dennis Deacon, landlord at Bengeworth Club. Following the success of the evening, the organisers hope that a Motown evening will become a regular event on the Club’s calendar.
Charlie Homer, Community Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said; “We would like to thank everyone for making this event such as success. As an independent charity, St Richard’s is very grateful for the generous support of the local community who help us continue to offer compassionate care.”
Funds raised on the evening were donated to St Richard’s Hospice and Midlands Air Ambulance.
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
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.
