Local ladies raise £15k for hospice

This year’s St. Joseph’s Hospice Spring Ladies Day has raised an incredible £15,000, thanks to the generosity of almost two hundred Merseyside ladies.

Welcome drinks and a three-course lunch were followed by pampering, shopping and a great deal of dancing at Formby Hall on Sunday 19th May.

This year’s Ladies Day host, Merseyside actress Lindzi Germain, gave up her time to support the hospice in memory of her friend and mentor, comedian Mickey Finn, who passed away at the hospice in 2016.

Lindzi made sure that everyone had a fantastic afternoon and encouraged everyone to dig deep for the chance to win a range of stunning prizes, all in aid of the hospice.

During the afternoon, everyone enjoyed a taster of Bachata dancing and singer Dee performed live, with range of modern hits and some classic Motown. The disco then took over and continued the party in to the evening.

The event was supported by a fantastic range of local businesses and talented crafts people selling gifts, clothes, hand-made jewellery, handbags and accessories who all helped to make the day such a success.

Julie McAdam, fundraiser at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “This year’s Spring Ladies Day was a great success with lots of new faces as well as many of our long-standing Ladies Day supporters turning out to let their hair down.

“We’d like to say a really big thank you to everyone who came along and supported the hospice, thanks also to our match funders from Barclays, Barclaycard, Very and Experian and all the local businesses who donated money and prizes.

“We hope you will all be back to join us for our very special Christmas Ladies Day at the Titanic in Liverpool on Sunday 1st December.”
