Thank you Retford Lions

We have received a very generous donation from the Retford Lions Club.

We have recently been presented with an amazing £1966.27 donation which has paid for all the furniture in the new relative rooms here at the Hospice.

We are very proud of the rooms we have at the hospice and the team are looking forward to being able to open the rooms back up once Covid-19 restrictions allow.

The Lions have been supporters of the Bassetlaw Hospice for a very long time now and we couldn't have done this without you 

Thank you Lions

Lace City Chorus picked us to be their charity of the year!

 Lace City Chorus - The team's story 

In January 2021 we lost our very dear friend and chorus member, Karina Roe. Karina was a member of the bass section and performed on the front row. She had the unique ability to inspire and motivate everyone she met and was a dear friend to us all. She spread positivity and had a sparkle that we miss so much.

We are so blessed that Karina's talent, enthusiasm and kindness was a part of Lace City Chorus. In honour of her memory, the chorus are raising funds to help fund the purchase of a new electric reclining chair for the Bassetlaw Hospice, where she spent her last days. We hope that in small way we can help make residents more comfortable as the staff at the hospice did for Karina.

Serlby Park Golf Club have picked us to be their charity of the year 2021

 

A message from the Janet Batty, the Lady Captain;

My name is Janet Batty and I was Lady Captain of Serlby Park Golf Club in 2020 and since the year did not pan out as expected, I am to continue in the role in 2021.

I chose to support the Bassetlaw Hospice as my Charity and the Captain came on board as well. Unfortunately, due to lockdowns and the closure of the Clubhouse for much of the year, fundraising has been difficult. We did, however, manage to raise just under £700 from donations, quizzes, a couple of raffles and the sale of some golf clothes. We also sold £100 worth of sunflower badges in aid of the Hospice.

The good news is, as both myself and the Captain are continuing in our roles, we are also continuing to have the Hospice as our nominated charity. Hopefully, as things return to normal, we will have more opportunities to fundraise and in particular hold our Charity Day in August, which is our biggest fundraising event.

Fingers crossed!!!!!!

In Memory of Jayne Reay

In Memory of Jayne

When Stuart Reay contacted the hospice to say that he wanted to start a Virgin Money Giving page for Jayne we knew we had to support him. The support and donations from friends and family has been overwhelming, in less than 4 days the money raised doubled the orginal target of £1000

Stuarts Story

In Memory of Jayne Elizabeth Reay, who sadly passed away on January 20th 2021 aged 64.

Jayne died at Bassetlaw Hospice in Retford where she was cared for in the last weeks of her life. Jayne had battled cancer for eight months, during which she endured numerous traumatic admissions via A&E to local hospitals that just weren’t geared up to give her the care she so much needed.

At Bassetlaw Hospice Jayne received the most unbelievable care from the amazing team there, and felt safe and cared for in her final weeks.
