ST MICHAEL’S HOSPICE
For three weeks from Monday 26th October, around 200 mini-masterpieces go under the hammer during Postcards from Life.
This year’s online-only event gives you the chance to hang on your wall a small work that portrays a big heart.
The lots have been created by some of the most talented artists around and can all be viewed on the St Michael’s Hospice website (www.st-michaels-hospice.org.uk) where you’ll also find a link to the Brightwells page to bid.
Event co-ordinator Gaynor Warren said: ‘The quality of entries this year is outstanding. I think it’s our best collection yet. So, get ready to browse and bid for work which will brighten any room, safe in the knowledge that your support will help families in our community living with a terminal illness.’
Light up a Life
Light up a Life is an invitation to everyone in our community to shine a light in memory of loved ones.
This year we will be unable to continue the tradition of organising our much-loved Light up a Life events throughout the community.
Instead, we’re already busy filming a special service set in Hereford Cathedral which will be live-screened from St Michael’s Hospice on Sunday 20th December and we hope as many people as possible will be able to join us online for the event.
We are also inviting people to play a part by filming themselves lighting a candle in memory of a loved one and sending the video to our Communications Team who will then create a montage of clips to form part of the online service.
There will also be an opportunity for people to remember their loved ones on a special website and on an installation which we hope to install in a public place in the centre of Hereford.
To find out more call the Hospice Communications Team on 01432 852 631 or visit www.st-michaels-hospice.org.uk
St Michael’s Hospice Lottery – Will you get the call?
One recent call came at the perfect time for Linda Stokes. ‘I really needed a new stairlift, and if I didn’t get one I might have had to move house,’ she said. ‘So, to receive the call from Michelle was a very pleasant surprise. The St Michael’s Hospice Lottery is a really affordable way to help such a good cause. I’m so glad I play.’
The generosity of players is helping St Michael’s continue supporting local families at a time they need it most.
So, could this be the week Michelle calls you with the news you’re the £1,000 winner?
To ensure you’re in with a chance of a grand this Friday, or one of 23 other cash prizes, visit www.st-michaels-hospice.org.uk/lottery or call 01432 851 000.
Get together online or in your social bubble and raise money for your Hospice by doing something we all love; drinking tea and eating cake.
Make your Big Tea a big success by supporting St Michael’s Hospice in the garden, in the office, outside a village hall, or in your street.
Or switch on your laptop, tablet or phone and host a video call with friends and family. Ask them to bring a cup of tea and a slice of cake and let them know how they can donate.
Sign up now at www.st-michaels-hospice.org.uk then pop the kettle on for St Michael’s.
