The St. Joseph’s Hospice Summer Garden Party will be back this August after 18 months without being able to hold any public fundraising events.
It will be a fun day for the whole family and will take place in the hospice’s beautiful woodland gardens in Thornton, near Crosby, from 12pm on Saturday 7th August.
The hospice’s fundraising team has struggled on throughout the pandemic with a variety of virtual events and online collections so they will be making every effort to make sure this year’s Garden Party is one to remember and raises much-needed funds for the hospice.
There will be fabulous market stalls, face painting and a kids corner, as well as the much-loved Teddy Bear Parade, a hospice tradition enjoyed by generations of local families.
There will also be a range of food and drink stalls, including an ice cream van, a BBQ and even a gin bar! There will also be entertainment throughout the afternoon.
The event will be free to attend and you can just turn up on the day but the hospice is asking people to put the date in their diaries and make every effort to come along and support the charity, which gives compassionate end of life nursing care to local people and their families.
In the run up to the event, the hospice is looking for donations of unopened bottles (anything from wine to shampoo), bottles of prosecco, new unwanted gifts, new unopened toys and gift bags to help make the day a great success.
If you are able to donate any of these items, please drop them off at the hospice in Thornton or at any St. Joseph’s Hospice shop across Merseyside.
