Money raised for Princess Alice Hospice

Fair’s fares for Hospice funds

Hundreds of people were taken for a ride over the Easter break – and they even paid for the privilege.

A special charity day at Hampton Court Green funfair raised a whopping £2,000 for Princess Alice Hospice – the profits from a rides discount wristband scheme.

Funfair boss George Irvin, who has regularly supported the Hospice for the past few years, said he was a keen supporter of local charities wherever the funfairs visit – with the Hospice being a cause close to his heart, and one he admires.

This week, the donation was handed over at the Hospice, where Partnerships Fundraiser Beth Sadler said: “The funfair charity day is a really good idea – people can have fun and donate at the same time – and it means traditional entertainment like the bank holiday fair, is supported by families in our area.

“Generous donations like this mean the Hospice continue to provide outstanding care to our patients in the Hospice and out in the community.”
