SPEEN HELPING HOSPICES

HISTORY

Speen Helping Hospices was founded in 2001 by Suzi Rose with the aim of raising funds for local hospices. The group started in a small way with a Hospice Charity Christmas Card Sale and other small events building over the years to the 5 events we are running this year. The Spring Lunch at the Horses Trust, The Car Boot Sale, Bridge Afternoon, Chilli and Dancing to a live band evening and The Christmas Market.With limited Government funding the Hospice Charites rely heavily on groups like the SHH to raise funds necessary to care for people with life limiting conditions and support their families.

The group support Florence Nightingale House, Helen Douglas House, Rennie Grove hospice and The South Bucks Day Hospice. To date we have raised £79,000

2018

After a very successful year the SHH were able to donate £10,000 split between the 4 Hospices supported by the group. Attached are some of the thank you letters received

EVENTS

The first event of the year will be our 2nd Quiz night although unlike last year it will not be entirely based on books and will include general knowledge and other rounds. The questions will also be a little easier as we thought last year they were quite challenging!

It will be held in Speen Village Hall on Friday 15th March from 7.30 pm.

Tickets are £10 including a free glass of wine and a large platter of Pate, Cheese and dips served at the mid-way point. Rebellion Beer and wine at the bar.

Bring a second-hand book to sell and buy another!
