This year is the 35th anniversary of the opening of the Hospice and we have exciting plans to celebrate throughout the year, including a Masquerade Ball, Evensong service at York Minster and a special installation of metal Sunflowers that can be dedicated in memory of loved ones.
In Ryedale, I will be hosting another Charity Lunch at The Feversham Arms in Helmsley featuring Ryedale celebrity Adam Collier. Adam will be doing his highly humorous talk on the Yorkshire dialect which will be followed by a delicious two-course lunch. There will also be a selection of Yorkshire-themed stalls to peruse on the day. Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
February sees the start of our annual Accumulator Challenge! If you are a business or educational establishment in Ryedale who are up for an entrepreneurial challenge, this is the opportunity for you! You will be given a £35 loan and then have 35 days to turn your starting total into as much money as you can in aid of the Hospice. The challenge ends with a celebratory awards ceremony hosted by Minster FM at the Marriott Hotel York; it’s a really fun fundraising activity to be part of.

I look forward to seeing you all when I am out and about in Ryedale this year. If you would like me to visit your organisation to deliver a talk about the work of the Hospice in the Ryedale area I would be very happy to do so. I am always on the lookout for new opportunities to meet people in the Ryedale area, so please do get in touch.
