Over 700 people took to the grounds of the hospice's Grade II* listed Cotswold manor house earlier this month for a day of family fun, foodie delights and live music and entertainment.

Elise Hoadley, director of Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, said: "I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported this event raising vital funds so we can continue to be there when it matters for local families. It was great to see so many people enjoying time together in our hospice grounds.

"We received help from so many people to make the day the success it was, including our partners and suppliers, cor-porate volunteers who helped get everything in place and our wonderful hospice volunteers too. We can't hold events like our Autumn Fayre without them.

"We're now busy gearing up for our next fundraising event which will see hundreds of supporters walk 10k around Cheltenham under the stars and through our softly lit hospice grounds on Saturday 19th October. We hope to wel-come lots more people to our hospice then."
