An evening of music, dancing and fundraising held in memory of Carmen Smith has raised over £2,000 to help the care, support and activities provided at a local hospice.
On Saturday 25 March more than 150 people came together for an enjoyable evening at the Wetheral Community Hall, which included music by Thrice Brewed. During April Carmen’s daughter Catherine Smith visited Eden Valley Hospice to donate £2,300 to the local charity.
The money raised from the event will help Eden Valley Hospice to provide the highest standards of care, support and activities to local adults with life limiting illnesses. This care and compassion is extended to all of the patients’ families, friends and carers.
Year on year it costs Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw £3.7million to provide care, support and activities to local people. Approximately 28% of the funding is received from the NHS with the remaining £2.7million raised by the kindness, support and generosity of the local community.
