Sport­ing night for Hospice in the Weald

Kent Life - - Society -

Sport­ing stars and 160 guests gath­ered at The Spa Ho­tel in Tun­bridge Wells for an evening of cel­e­bra­tion to raise funds for Hospice in the Weald. The event, hosted by for­mer Kent and Eng­land cricket cap­tain Chris Cow­drey, raised £60,000. Chris chaired a lively ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion with Bri­tain’s most suc­cess­ful Win­ter Olympian, Lizzy Yarnold, the win­ner of two skele­ton rac­ing gold medals, and TV ten­nis com­men­ta­tor An­drew Cas­tle. Si­mon Lee, Chair­man of the hospice, said: “The money raised en­ables our hospice to con­tinue to pro­vide care free of charge, now and in the fu­ture, for pa­tients, their fam­i­lies and car­ers. It’s fan­tas­tic to be part of an evening that makes such a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity.”
