Celebrate St George’s Day and support your local hospice
St Peter & St James Hospice is inviting everyone to celebrate St George’s Day with a Gala Lunch and auction at Pelham House Hotel.
On Friday 22 April, the Hospice and Pelham House Hotel, in Lewes, will be jointly hosting the event, involving a 3-course meal and auction. The day is the perfect occasion to celebrate English culture with traditional and locally-sourced food while raising funds for St Peter & St James Hospice.
All the Hospice services are free of charge to patients and loved ones and St Peter & St James relies on its local community for 86% of its funds, as just 14% comes from the Government. St Peter & St James cares for patients from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and surrounding villages. With a population of 200,000, if every person in the catchment area gave just £1 a month this would nearly cover the running costs.
Carolyn Robinson, Donor Relationship Manager at St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “We’re very grateful to Pelham House Hotel for facilitating this lunch and look forward to welcoming our guests to a very special event to help raise much needed funds for the hospice”
General Manager at Pelham House Hotel, Tony Giauna, said, “It’s fantastic to host an event and be able to support a local charity offering such an important service to the community. We hope we can make this an annual event that businesses will support.”
