Support for Julia’s House
It’s great news that Julia’s House have already raised £3 million of the original £3.5 million target they set for opening and running a new children’s hospice here in Devizes. It means that work can begin on the new hospice as soon as planning permission has been granted, with a target date for opening of autumn 2017.
However half a million is still needed for items such as specialist beds, hoists and play equipment and so last Saturday we set up a stall in Devizes Town Hall to sell clothes, shoes, bags and other assorted goodies an event organised by Julia’s House to raise further funds.
A big thank you to all at the club who donated clothing etc. We were able to hand over £90 to the Julia’s House team, and the unsold items have been donated to the Julia’s House for selling through their charity shops.
