Full 2019 programme


ST MICHAEL’S HOSPICE

Choir Plea:

Calling all pianists.

The St Michael’s Hospice Community Choir is looking for a talented volunteer pianist.

The successful person will be available for rehearsals at the Hospice between 5-6pm on Tuesday’s leading up to performances.

The role could suit a retired teacher or a promising student.

The Choir has performed at several Hospice events this year including the Flower Festival at Lyde Arundel, and Midsummer Lights.

If you’re interested, or for more information, call Denise Bishop on 01432 852 656.

Postcards From Life:

This Autumn, 200 miniature masterpieces created by some of the finest artists in our region will go under the hammer.

Postcards from Life returns from a year’s break with the widest range of art St Michael’s Hospice has ever had.

Thanks to our friends at Brightwells you will be able to browse and bid for each item online for a fortnight from Monday 28th October.

Then, for the final three days of the auction from 8th November, everyone’s invited to the Bishop’s Palace in the centre of Hereford to view the art in person.

All the artists are producing the work for Postcards from Life free of charge, with many submitting multiple items.

Lottery:

Each Friday, St Michael’s Hospice gives away £1,000, plus a stash of other cash prizes, in its Lottery draw.
This summer, the 1,000th weekly draw was held, meaning that since the Lottery began almost 20 years ago, countless Hospice supporters in our community have received a share of £1.5million in prize money, while at the same time helping fund the vital care provided by St Michael’s to those in Herefordshire and beyond.
