Festive fair raises over £12,000 for hospice funds
SPRINGHILL Hospice opened its doors for its biggest Christmas Fair yet, raising over £12,000.
The Hospice started the festive season off with a bang as hundreds of people were welcomed into the grounds of the Broad Lane Hospice for the seasonal event which brought in £12,326 into the coffers.
The event hosted a variety of stalls from tombolas and books to candles and baubles in its winter wonderland marquee.
Guests were also treated to music by the Wardle brass band playing Christmas favourites to get people in the festive mood.
A fantastic day was had by all and a record breaking total was raised for the Hospice.
Rebekah Cheshire, the events and campaigns fundraiser for Springhill Hospice, said: “Our Christmas Fair was a great start to our seasonal events and it was so lovely to see so many supporters visiting our hospice and enjoying the day.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who supported the event and helped raise vital funds for Springhill.”
The event was hosted to raise funds for the 16 bed Hospice which needs £9,000 per day to provide vital services to its patients and their families from the local borough. ●●RIGHT: Mayor of Whitworth Coun Madeline De Souza and Mayor of Rochdale Coun Mohammed Zaman opening the Springhill Hospice Christmas Fair
