After a three-year wait, the Hospice’s Summer Fete and Dog Show was the place to be to celebrate our furry friends, take part in hook-a-duck, enjoy a delicious ice cream and, of course, support the Hospice.

Just over 1,300 people from our local community visited the Hospice grounds in July to enjoy a wide range of activities, stalls, refreshments and food.

This had been a much-missed event, due to the pandemic, and it felt particularly special to see so many smiling faces together again.

We’d like to thank all our amazing volunteers who gave up their time to make the day as special as it was, we couldn’t have done it without you! The event raised an amazing £14,400!
