Julie McAdam, Senior Community Fundraiser at St Joseph's Hospice, said:-
"We have expanded our usual Teddy Bears Picnic this year in to a very
special Garden Party to celebrate our 55th Anniversary so we want to invite
as many people as possible along on 8 July 2017, to enjoy a fun filled
family afternoon. It's such a beautiful place and our community is so very
important to us. At the Hospice, we provide specialist end of life care for
over 200 patients from our local community every year and, as a registered
charity, we need to raise ₤6,850 every day to keep these services running.
This means that events like our Garden Party are vital and your support is
incredibly valuable to us. Why not bring a picnic, along with your family
and friends, and enjoy the 12 acres of beautiful woodland and gardens which
surround the Hospice in Thornton? The event is entirely free and we hope you
have a fantastic afternoon."
