Family hopes music night will prove a hit for hospice

A family organising a charity music night is hoping it will be a fitting tribute to a much-loved mother and wife as they support the hospice, which cared for her.

The night of music, which is being organised in memory of Sheila Empson by her husband Peter and daughters Sandra Bennett and Beverley Rees, will raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Sheila spent the last few days of her life in the hospice and the family is keen to raise as much as they can in recognition of the care and support they received.

The event, which is the fourth charity night organised by Sheila’s family, will take place at Lakenheath Village Hall on Saturday, May 9.

Featuring a mix of music the family hope the occasion will be a fitting tribute, honouring Sheila’s love of music and dancing, passions she shared with her husband Peter.

The occasion, which will feature three bands, will see Peter and his and Sheila’s grandsons take to the stage to share their talents.

With last year’s event, raising £1,300 for the hospice the family are hopeful people will once again support them with their charitable efforts by buying tickets.

Miranda McCoy, a hospice community fundraiser, said: “Last year the Empson family pulled off a brilliant event which raised a fantastic amount for our charity. I am so grateful they have decided to support us again.

“I hope everyone will get behind them and join them for what promises to be a great night out with some fabulous music.”

Tickets for the event, which runs from 7pm to 11pm, are on sale now for £7 and can be purchased from the East of England Co-op funeral directors, High Street Lakenheath.
