On Friday 29 September, "VVA by Sarah Haran" supported the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice in its Brick by Brick Appeal with its innovative Lip Syncing event.
Billed as "What Women Want" and hosted by Edward Reid, with judges Bafta winner and "Morvern Callar" star Kathleen McDermott and DJ Suzie McGuire, contestants wowed the audience when they took to the stage in an hilarious lip sync battle.
"VVA by Sarah Haran" donated 20 handbags to the charity and a tombola was held on the night which helped to raise just under a £1,000. As Sarah Haran commented - "the hard work that the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice does to give back to the people of Glasgow is beyond amazing and I am totally delighted our handbags have helped such a worthwhile cause" ...
The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is a registered charity providing care free of charge to all it's patients. With support from the public they provide end of life care for 1200 new patients and their families every year.
As Edward commented "What the hospice and its supporters all around the world have done over the past five years to raise the money needed to build a new home for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is incredible,”
“Events like this that are such wonderful fun! The people who buy the tickets and support the hospice are what Glasgow is all about - looking after each other but having a laugh and a great time while doing it.”
The hospice still has £1.3 million to raise to reach the £21 million target of the Brick by Brick Appeal to build a brand new hospice in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park.
As work progresses on the site, staff and volunteers look forward to welcoming patients to this 21st-century hospice that will provide state-of-the-art palliative care services. The hospice’s new home will offer the flexibility to develop and improve these services for patients and families, and look after young patients aged from 16 years old.
“We have had a fabulous night, but everyone is here for a reason: to support the hospice,” said Heather Manson, director of fundraising at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
“Ongoing support is vital as the hospice looks to the future and extends its care to many more patients and families who need its help every day. We can’t thank everyone enough for the help they’ve given us over the years, and continue to offer as we look to the future.”
Here's to many more fantastic evenings that help to raise that final £1.3 million.
