Cradley Retirement Village Raises Vital Funds For Local Hospice

Lime Gardens Retirement Village, built on the site of Cradley High School, have raised hundreds of pounds for Mary Stevens Hospice through a residents' coffee morning.

Retiree, Gordon Roberts, organised the morning with donations of cakes made by fellow residents to raise funds in support of the Mary Stevens Hospice which cares for families who are impacted by life-limiting illnesses.

The group raised more than £450 through the sale of cakes and coffee, with the Hospice also running a raffle at the event on the day. Gordon Roberts, Event organiser and Lime Gardens resident said:

“It was a well-supported morning for a good local cause and we are looking forward to supporting the Hospice again later in the year as we have chosen them as our Christmas charity.”

Norma Waldron, Mary Stevens Hospice volunteer, said:

“It was a fantastic morning and a great show of support from the Lime Gardens residents.

The money they've raised is enough to pay for two patients to receive a full day of care at the Hospice tomorrow - that's the difference they have made.”
