Trio raise £1500 in memory of family members

Three ladies from Blackburn organised a Spring Fair to raise hospice funds. Beccy Whitehouse, Karen Cassidy and Michelle Goodill set to planning the event in memory of Karen's aunty Lynne Wood and Michelle's mother in law June Conroy who both received care at the hospice last year. The trio raised a fantastic £1519.13 on the day. Beccy said: "It exceeded our expectations and there were so many people there supporting us - it was brilliant!"
Karen added: "We are so grateful to everyone for the items that were donated." And Michelle agreed: "We are overwhelmed by everyone's generosity."
A huge well done to Beccy, Karen and Michelle for your hard work. What you've raised will make a difference to hospice patients and their families.
