Weston Hospicecare’s 30th anniversary year summer fair has raised £1,885.93 for the charity after taking place at Jackson-Barstow House on Saturday.
Volunteers and staff pulled together to man stalls and serve refreshments, while chief executive Paul Winspear was the willing volunteer at the heart of the ‘soak the bloke’ stand.
Organisers were very pleased with how many people attended the event and community fundraiser Sue Harding has heaped praise onto all those who helped to make the event a success.
She said: “A huge thank you to everyone who helped with the summer fair on Saturday. Be it manning a stall, baking for us, setting up and taking down of the event, visiting the fair and handing over your hard-earned cash, or many of the other tasks that it takes to put on such an event.
“You are all marvellous, but a big thank you to the chair of Weston Hospicecare’s friends group Sue Barlow for her continued hard work and enthusiasm.
“And a special thank you to our chief executive Paul for so being such a good sport in sitting in the stocks for our ‘soak the bloke’ stand.”
The next Friends of Weston Hospicecare fair will take place around Christmas with a date to be confirmed.
Other upcoming events for the hospice include a host of open garden days through the summer, and the hotly-anticipated It’s A Hospice Knockout – sponsored by the Grand Pier – at Weston Cricket Club on 14 July. Find out more at westonhospicecare.org.uk
