SPEEN HELPING HOSPICES
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 £74250.87
BRIDGE – WEDNESDAY 10TH OCTOBER
The Bridge and Tea afternoon was a stunning success with some must see photos attached. Some even partook of their tea in the stunning garden in the glorious sunshine and someone was heard to say ‘It’s like having tea at the Ritz!’. I believe everyone enjoyed the Bridge as well!
The event raised just over £700 bringing our total to £74250.87
