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.
