On Saturday 24th March a Charity Night in aid of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice is being held at the Field Sport & Social Club, Chelsea Road, Bradford. The event has now been running successfully for a number of years and is both organised and supported by the staff, friends and volunteers of Lill Brothers Fishmerchants Est 1855 and other local businesses in and around Bradford.
Year on year this event grows in popularity as people of all ages, religions, and backgrounds come together for a night of spectacular entertainment featuring a diverse array of local talent including dance groups and singers. Elvis Presley impersonator Dave Gracelands & The Passionettes are also in the line up to entertain the crowds and get everyone in the party mood!
Hospice Fundraiser Harriet Wood said “This event made such an overwhelming impact on the local community last year bringing everyone together and it was incredible to witness. It was clear to see that no matter what your age, religion, or background, it was mutually recognised that these life limiting illnesses don’t discriminate and so in order to help those in need around us– we must stand together showing respect, support, and care in aid of this crucially important service and this event is a fantastic way or not only raising funds but also bringing people together.
For more information on this event please contact 07958 024538. Tickets are £7.00 each or £8.00 on the door – food included. It really is a night not to be missed in aid of a fantastic local cause.
Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice provides incredible hospice care to people living with life-limiting illnesses across Airedale, Craven and North and West Bradford. Established over 40 years ago, Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice not only provides specialist medical care to ease pain and discomfort, but also offers people and their families real emotional support during what can be an extremely difficult time.
Last year, their community nurse specialists provided over 2795 home visits; almost 200 people attended their day therapy unit and the bereavement team received more than 1380 telephone calls.
All care services at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice are free of charge. However it costs £2.9m to run the hospice and only part of these costs are covered by statutory funds. Every year the hospice needs to raise over £1.6 million in donations to continue to provide its specialist care services.
