ON Saturday the 8th of July St Clare Hospice opened its doors and hosted its first ever Summer Fayre. Held in the grounds of the hospice the day attracted over 1,000 excited fayre-goers and raised over £11,800 – an astonishing amount that will help support the vital work of the hospice.

On the day, visitors experienced all the fun of the fayre with inflatables, crafts, food, refreshments and shopping as well as some energetic displays from Sorelle Dance Academy, UKA Karate and Bounce Fitness.

There was a special appearance by Clare Bear who delighted children with a walk around and a few dance moves!

Stall holders had a huge selection on offer including candles, clothes, and plants providing an array of shopping opportunities. There was also a stand where you could find out more about nursing opportunities at the hospice as the hospice expands its nursing team.

Event Organiser, Ellie Gale, Relationship Fundraising Manager said ‘We are blown away by the success of the fayre and the superb amount raised for the hospice. The day raised over £11,800, which would cover the cost of running the In Patient unit for 2 days.

“We asked for support from our local community and they turned out in force! One of the highlights of the day was seeing people of all ages enjoying themselves. The atmosphere was great. We are so lucky to be part of a community that values the fantastic care that the hospice provides.

“A huge thanks to everyone who came and made it such a success, our fayre sponsor Goodnus, and of course our devoted volunteers – we couldn’t have done it without them.’
