A CHE­SHAM mother is host­ing her third char­ity disco in mem­ory of her late hus­band to sup­port the char­ity that cared for him in his fi­nal months.

Natalie Hart,of Mount Nugent, Che­sham, lost her hus­band Dave Hart, a for­mer re­tained Che­sham fire­fighter, to can­cer at The Hospice of St Fran­cis in 2013 at the age of 42.

Mrs Hart, 46, a su­per­vi­sor at The Bea­con School in Che­sham Bois, said: “The care Dave re­ceived at the hospice was out­stand­ing, as was the af­ter­care my daugh­ter Me­gan and I re­ceived.

“As a fam­ily, we can’t thank the hospice staff enough for all they’ve done for us and for Dave in his last months and we are de­lighted to give some­thing back.”

Every­one is wel­come to at­tend Dave The Rave’s 80s Disco at the Bel­mont Club, Che­sham, on Satur­day, April 30 from 7.30pm.

Mrs Hart added: “Dave loved ‘80s music, so an ‘80s disco is the per­fect way to cel­e­brate his life and a great way to say thank you again to the hospice by rais­ing as much as pos­si­ble.

“Since 2012, through fundrais­ers and spon­sored events we have raised £13,500 for the hospice, which is amaz­ing.

“I’d like to thank the Bel­mont Club for their hos­pi­tal­ity and Tom New­ton for host­ing the disco free of charge for the third year run­ning.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing that fundrais­ing to­tal go up even more!”

The Hospice of St Fran­cis cares for peo­ple liv­ing with life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses across Bucks and Herts, and of­fers sup­port for their fam­i­lies and car­ers, at its 14-bed In­pa­tient Unit at its Spring Cen­tre or in their own homes.

All its ser­vices are free but its an­nual run­ning costs are £4.8mil­lion and only 20 per cent of this comes from the NHS – the rest is funded through vol­un­tary do­na­tions.

Tick­ets for the disco cost £5 each for adults and £2.50 for chil­dren.

Eight­ies fancy dress is op­tional.

To book tick­ets or for more in­for­ma­tion call Mrs Hart on 07920 093 108 or con­tact the Bel­mont Club on 01494 772 139.

Much loved: Natalie Hart from Che­sham has or­gan­ised her third char­ity disco in mem­ory of her hus­band Dave. Left, dress­ing up and one of the pre­vi­ous dis­cos
