Kind-hearted people of Penryhn Court, Penrhyn Bay have celebrated over 15 years of fundraising for their local hospice, and once again gathered for a summer coffee morning to boost their total.
Since the start of their fundraising events, they have raised an outstanding £30,000 for local palliative care. The summer coffee morning, held on the 16th June, raised another £1100. It was a busy morning supported by their family and friends, who all enjoyed the fundraising stalls, raffles and refreshments.
To show thanks for all their efforts, St David’s Hospice CEO Trystan Pritchard presented the group with a certificate of acknowledgement and met many of the residents that have provided wonderful support to the Hospice over the years.
“The residents of Penrhyn Court have been incredibly supportive of the Hospice for many years. We are so grateful to them for all they have done for us and the amount they have raised is fantastic.
“ St Davids Hospice was established in the community and the support of groups such as Penrhyn Court is the reason it has been able to continue to provide vital end of life services to local people over the years. Thank you very much to everyone involved.”
