Get stocked up for Christmas while helping Gloucestershire charity

Coffee, cake, presents and a slice of Christmas cheer will be on offer at a fund-raising event run by the Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice next month.

The charity's volunteer-run monthly coffee morning will take on a Festive them on Saturday, December 7 (10.30am-1pm).

Anyone and everyone is invited to come along and get in the Christmas spirit while raising vital funds for families needing expert and compassionate palliative care.

It's the perfect chance to escape the Christmas shopping crowds and enjoy a more relaxed Christmas shopping experience with a range of craft stalls.

Christmas cards and gifts will also be available while there is a festive tombola and delicious cakes and festive treats to enjoy.

After shopping, enjoy a freshly ground cup of coffee supplied by The Coffee Dispensary Cheltenham, all while helping support local families needing care of the hospice.

Since starting in January this year the regular coffee

mornings have raised £1,677 which could pay for 88 hours of care by Sue Ryder Nurses.

Hospice volunteer, Paulette Vallois, who organises the coffee mornings, said, "As well as our usual great coffee, cake and chatter there will be lots of festive themed stalls selling some lovely bespoke items in the bright and welcoming day hospice building."

"I hope lots of people will pop along and support us, as everything we raise on the day will help Sue Ryder Nurses, doctors, care and support teams at the hospice be there for local people when it matters, providing their expert care to help lives shine bright this Christmas."

Admission is free.
