Dancing to raise funds in memory of Dave
Third 80s disco in aid of Hospice of St Francis
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.
