Ladies' luncheon raises £2k for Esher's Princess Alice Hospice
The mayor of Elmbridge’s charity ladies’ luncheon has raised £1,925 for Princess Alice Hospice.
The money raised at the lunch will go toward the Esher hospice’s Eight to Eight nursing service.
The service provides the carer and family with support during the long night hours in the last week of a patients’ life.
Guest speaker, author, lecturer and presenter Anne Sebba, gave an insight into the subject of her latest biography, Wallis Simpson, and entertained with tales of her adventures whilst researching for the book.
Nikki Shaw, chief executive of Princess Alice Hospice, gave a brief talk on the services that the hospice provides, and the Eight to Eight service in particular.
Speaking after the event, held on Monday, September 24, at Woodlands Park Hotel, Stoke D’Abernon, mayor of Elmbridge Councillor Janet Turner said: “I would like to thank all the people who gave so generously to my charity.
“The rain on the day tried to dampen our spirits, but this was impossible with such a wonderful speaker as Anne Sebba, good food and excellent company, who could ask for anything more.”
