Come say hello to your local hospice team and enjoy a coffee in Sandy
Hospice staff are inviting people for a coffee in Sandy on Thursday 4th April between 11am and 2pm, in a bid to raise awareness of the services it provides and tell people more about the exciting events it has planned this year in support of local families.
Members of Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice family support, volunteering and fundraising teams will be joined by Sue Ryder Nurses at Sandy Conservative Club, to share information about the care they give in the local community.
There will also be the opportunity to find out more about the exciting events planned across Bedfordshire this year to raise vital funds for local families in need of the hospice’s expert and compassionate palliative care, including Starlight Hike, Bedfordshire Half Marathon and LIST.
Plus there are delicious homemade cakes on offer and a charity raffle too.
Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice is located in the village of Moggerhanger and provides palliative care and support for people living with life-limiting conditions across Bedfordshire.
Harjot Kaur is the Community Fundraiser at the hospice helping to organise the event. She said, “We want to reach out to people in the local community to tell them more about the services we offer and how they can get involved in supporting their local hospice.”
“In Sandy alone, we cared for over 75 people in our inpatient unit and over 80 through the Palliative Care Hub in 2018. We want to give more care to more people, but this can only happen if more people know about our services and are inspired to support our hospice so we can raise the funds needed as a charity to continue to be there when it matters.”
“It promises to be a great morning with lots of delicious cakes and conversation on offer.”
Entry to the coffee morning is free, with refreshments in return for a donation. No need for tickets, just turn up on the day.
