Hospice fund-raiser enjoys great success
A JUBILEE ball to celebrate 25-years of work done by St Catherines Hospice raised £4,000 for charity.
The festivities saw 140 people attend the Driffield Showground and enjoy a four-course meal before dancing the night away at a disco.
The hospice was founded by two women: Margaret Thompson and Gill Ullyott, and provides care to people diagnosed with terminal diseases.
The money raised will go towards funding the care provided by the hospice and the celebration was part of a year of fund-raising for the hospice during it’s silver anniversary year.
Gill said: “We are absolutely delighted - it is brilliant. We worked hard but we couldn’t have wished for a better evening. If anyone had told me 25-years-ago we would still be going in the 2013 I wouldn’t have believed them.
“The support from Driffield people has been amazing. What we work for is to help other people and I would like to thank everyone for their support.”
