You will be able to book a time slot, and there will be refreshments including mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies on sale. Please keep an eye on our website www.jospice.org.uk and on our social media for the latest information.
Maxine Armstrong, head of fundraising at St. Joseph’s Hospice, said: “We are really excited to launch our Sparkle for St. Joseph’s project as it is a lovely way for local businesses to help brighten up a dark winter and show our patients how much they are loved and cared for by their communities.
“To sponsor a Christmas tree, we are asking businesses to donate £200 per tree. We will provide the trees and will include the name of the donor or a business logo by the tree.
“We’d like to say a big thank you to Holy Family School, C & D Properties and Shenanigans Bar, who have already sponsored Christmas trees as part of our Sparkle project.
“Please help us to give the gift of Christmas to our patients this year and help our gardens to sparkle.”
