Family raises over £5,000 for hospice as thank you for their support

A terminally ill father asked his daughter to put her thinking cap on and come up with fundraising ideas for a local hospice that supports him and his family.

Daughter Francesca Clark, of Great Wadlingfield, took up her father Stuart’s challenge and organised three quiz nights in Lavenham and raised £5,045 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Francesca said: “My Dad is such a generous man, always putting others before himself. As soon as he was diagnosed with a grade 4 brain tumour and kidney cancer, he wanted to do some fundraising for the hospice.

“Dad knows that is very likely we, as a family, will be using most of the hospice services throughout our journey and the raising the money is his way of saying ‘thank you’ for the future.”

Fran with the help of friends, family and work colleagues at Number Ten Wine Bar and Kitchen, in Lavenham, organised three quiz nights including a raffle.

The quiz nights took place in the Number Ten Wine Bar and Kitchen and Lavenham Village Hall.

George Chilvers, community fundraising manager, St Nicholas Hospice Care said: “Francesca with her Dad’s encouragement, has done an amazing job of raising over £5,000 for the hospice. The money raised will help us to continue supporting people living with death, dying and grief, and I know the family are benefiting from our support services.”
