Throughout the months of December and January, Duty Manager of KFC Llandudno Junction Stephen Batchelor sold Hope Bracelets, which he had intricately made by knotting colourful strands of cord.
The multi coloured bracelets, priced at £3 each were displayed for customers to purchase at the fast food restaurant with a poster saying “Everyone needs a little colour and hope in their life”, a very poignant message for the tough financial times the end of life charity is currently experiencing due to Covid 19.

All proceeds from the bracelets were recently donated to St David’s Hospice, which amounted to £530.
Whilst handing over the donation Stephen said:
“My family and friends and myself provided all the clasps and cord ourselves for the bracelets.
“I was aiming to raise over £500 for the amazing St David’s Hospice and look forward to supporting St David’s again in the future.”
Throughout the pandemic, St David’s Hospice continues to provide its vital care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Thanks to the support of the local community, such as Stephen’s fundraising activity, the charity is able to provide specialist end of life care and support free of charge to local people at a very difficult time in their lives.
Conwy Area Fundraiser James Wilde said:
“Thank you to Stephen, his friends and his family for their time and effort they put into creating the Hope Bracelets.
“The funds raised by the Hope Bracelets, as well as the consistent support from KFC Llandudno Junction through collection cans, will be a real support to both patients and their families here at St David’s Hospice.”
