Sue Huntington’s #fashionshow in aid of Wirral Hospice – Wed 18 March 2015, tickets £10 call 0151 343 0778

wirral_hospice_sue_huntington_fashion_show_flyer_2015We are super excited to be working with Sue Huntington on her next fashion show! Having seen the excitement first hand at her previous shows, we are privileged to have been selected by Sue to benefit from the proceeds of her latest show.

Sue has the most amazing shop in Heswall and her fashion shows have a reputation near and far for launching casual yet sophisticated seasonal outfits as well as high glamour dresses and outfits for glitzy occasions and weddings. There’s always lots of oohing and aahing in the audience and people queue around the block to get into Sue’s shop the next day!

Sue’s fashion show will held in the stunning Walled Garden Marquee at Thornton Manor, Thornton Hough CH63 1JB. Doors will open at 7 for pre-show drinks and the show will start promptly at 7.30pm.

We’ve got some wonderful raffle prizes lined up for our guests to be in with a chance of winning. Unfortunately we can’t say too much at this stage but let’s just say, there’s definitely a designer handbag and an overnight stay in a plush hotel in there!

We’re hoping to sell 1,000 tickets for the night, which is a tall order but with your help we hope we can! Please spread the word amongst your family and friends, we’d love to see you on the night and we that know Sue would too. She’s been a long-time supporter of Wirral Hospice St John’s so she’s equally delighted to be helping us to raise a fantastic amount of money for our patients, their carers and families.

Please call the Fundraising Office on 0151 343 0778 Mon to Fri 9-5pm or email or to book your tickets, which are only £10 each. Really good value for a fabulous night out!

Lady Jean Stoddart awarded OBE in New Year Honours list #hospiceheroes

wirral_hospice_lady_jean_stoddart Lady Jean Stoddart, who was awarded the OBE in the recent New Year’s Honours list, retired as President of Wirral Hospice St John’s in November 2014, after a decade in the position.

Only the second person to hold the role, Lady Stoddart took it on already knowing the Hospice well:  she was present in June 1983, when her husband, the then Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside, Wing Commander Sir Kenneth Stoddart, opened it.

wirral_hospice_paul_cuthbertson_jean_stoddartDuring her tenure, Wirral Hospice St John’s has undergone many changes and improvements.  In 2009, a purpose-built, state-of-the-art Outpatient Services building was built, and, just last year, the refurbished and enlarged Day Therapy Unit opened.

“It is entirely appropriate that Lady Stoddart has received the OBE,” said Dr Paul Cuthbertson MBE, Chairman of Wirral Hospice St John’s Board of Trustees. “Quite apart from the other charitable works to which she has dedicated her life (particularly Ronald McDonald House), she has been an invaluable source of wisdom and practical help to everyone at the Hospice. She has taken a particular interest in our volunteers, without whom the Hospice would struggle to operate.”

We give grateful thanks to Lady Jean Stoddart OBE DL, truly one of our #hospiceheroes!
