Hospice asks for bottles, gifts and stalls

St. Joseph’s Hospice is hosting a very special 55th Anniversary Garden Party in the hospice gardens in Thornton on Saturday 8th July from 1pm.

The hospice’s fundraising team is on the look out for any new and unopened bottles people many have and can spare for the Bottle Tombola. It could be wine, bubble bath or juice – anything in a bottle.

They’re also looking for any unwanted gifts or new, unopened toys or gift bags for the Grab a Bag stall.

If you have anything to donate, please drop it off at the hospice in Thornton or at any St. Joseph’s Hospice or Jospice shop across Merseyside. A full list of shops can be found at www.jospice.org.uk.

They also have a number of spaces available for stall holders to sell their products on the day. Anyone who makes jam, honey, pickles or cakes, home décor, soft furnishings, glass wear or candles, or even sells books or cards, can book their stall now! There is a small donation of £25 per stall and public liability insurance will be required. Be quick as its first come, first served!

Julie McAdam, Senior Community Fundraiser at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “Our Garden Party and Teddy Bears Picnic will be a fun-filled family afternoon to celebrate our 55th Anniversary and so we want to invite as many people along as possible.

“If you would like to hold your own stall, to sell your own home-made crafts or products, or can help us by donating something for our tombola’s, please send your donation in. This will save us from having to buy prizes, meaning that we can spend more money on patient care, where it really matters. We hope you will support us and we look forward to seeing you all there on the day.”
