Thanks from St Peter's Hospice

Patricia Hyett
Both our harvest session and a session we held in celebration of the life of Patricia Hyett raised money in aid of St Peter's Hospice. Maggie has received the following letter of thanks from St Peter's.

Dear members of the Dragon Folk Club,

I am writing to thank you for raising £110.00 which we received on 13/10/2014 from your special remembrance night for Patricia Hyett. It is such an amazing achievement and we are so proud to have such brilliant supporters like you.

As you may know we are the only adult hospice that covers the wider Bristol region, and we play a vital role in the care of terminally ill patients across a huge area. One of the hardest parts of our work is helping the bereaved to deal with the loss of loved ones - people like Tom Drury, aged 20 from Bradley Stoke, who explains...

"St Peter's Hospice cared for my Mum Kate who died when I was 14 years old.

"Then my Dad passed away at the Hospice in March 2010, having lost his own battle with cancer.

"When we had Dad's diagnosis I couldn't believe that cancer was about to tear my family apart again. My Mum and Dad died too young, but St Peter's Hospice gave them both a good end to their lives."

It is only thanks to the generosity of people like you that stories like Tom's are possible so thank you so very much Maggie for your support and I hope that you had a great time fundraising for us!!


Best Wishes
