THE SHAKESPEARE Hospice has benefited from a Ladies Day.
The Dallas Burston Polo Club at Southam raised some £5,200 for the Shottery hospice which provides care to terminally ill patients and support to their families.
The day included polo tournaments, best-dressed prizes, fund-raising auctions and was rounded off by performance from former Drifters member Roy Hemmings.
Hospice supporter Major Richard Carney said: “The support and compassion offered by the hospice is tailored to each individual need, whether it is care at home, in hospital or at any other place of residence, it is unique to every person they help.
“So many of us are touched by the work of the hospice, whether experiencing it first-hand or knowing someone who has needed this care. Raising money for such a cause is imperative as they are a charity and so can only continue to do the good work they do in the community if they receive this vital funding.”
Hospice CEO Angie Arnold said: “The Shakespeare Hospice are delighted to be Dallas Burston’s chosen charity and we are very appreciative of everyone involved in supporting this great event.”
