Ken hosted over 350 people at the Ember Big Band’s event on Saturday 25 March. Strictly Come Dancing Live Tours Musical Director, Allan Rogers, conducted the band and Strictly judge, Anton Du Beke, contributed to the evening via Zoom. It was a fantastic night of big band sounds spanning six decades. The band is now in its eleventh year, and we are incredibly grateful for the support they have given us over the years, helping to raise vital funds to help us continue to provide compassionate care, free of charge. Hospice Ambassador, Debi Oliver, whose daughter Emily received end of life care at the Hospice in 2019, spoke movingly about the support we provide to our local community and how her own family has been supported since.
