Moggie’s ‘wall of fame’ to help hospice funds in memory of his mum
RELATIVES can nominate their loved ones to be included in a ‘Hall of Fame’ in aid of Springhill Hospice.
Well-known fundraiser ‘Moggie’, AKA retired window cleaner Stephen Murray, is organising a benefit do for the hospice at Brickcroft Social Club tomorrow (Sunday).
It will be held in memory of Moggie’s mum Sylvia Murray, of Queensway, who died at the hospice aged 84 in July.
Well-known tribute act The Ambassadors will provide the entertainment at the do, from noon to 6pm.
Guests can also pay £10 to have a picture and brief biography of loved ones who were cared for at the hospice displayed on the wall of the club.
Moggie said: “If we get 100 people that’s £1,000 we can raise for the hospice.
“This is my way of saying thank you to the hospice for the way they looked after my mum.
“She was a very loving wife, mother and a doting nan and great grandma.
“She sadly left so many people heartbroken, not by choice, but sadly the dreaded cancer got the better of her.
“She peacefully passed away in Springhill Hospice, with all her family around her. It was a very heart breaking and upsetting time for all the family, but with loads of care and support, from all the staff at the hospice, this made the sad situation a little bit better.
“We would love to show our appreciation, to all the dedicated staff at the hospice, and display a photo of a very loving and beautiful mother, for all the world to see.”
Entry to the event is £5 on the door.
Anyone wishing to display a photo in the ‘Hall of Fame’ should visit the club between noon and 2pm today (Saturday) or noon and 1pm tomorrow, where Moggie will be on hand to put up the display.
Donations of raffle prizes are also welcomed.
