Day Care Service Raises Over £1000 For Charity

A day care centre in Ross-on-Wye has hosted a coffee morning raising over £1000 for St Michael’s Hospice, Hereford.

Staff at Woodside, Gloucester Road, were joined by guests from the local community including the mayor of Ross-on-Wye, councillor Louis Stark and CEO of Shaw healthcare, Russell Brown.

Also at the event was 89-year-old Sheila Whittingham who worked the first night shift at Woodside when it opened 40 years ago.

The team hosted a raffle for St Michaels Hospice, which is an independent charity that supports those with life limiting illnesses and are in need of end of life care.

Service manager of Woodside, Heather Aubrey, commented: “Everyone has been so generous with donating prizes and purchasing raffle tickets. I would like to thank everyone who has made it possible to raise such a fantastic amount of money for such a worthy cause.”

Michael Keel, St Michael’s Hospice chief executive, said: “At St Michael’s Hospice, we rely heavily on the support of our community, so fundraisers like this one from Shaw healthcare are vital.

“We would like to thank everyone for attending this event, and Shaw healthcare for raising funds for St Michael’s.”
