Our chapel and visitor room had a magical transformation yesterday!
A pre-nuptial wedding blessing was held for Deborah and Johan yesterday. They are due to get married later this year in South Africa, however Deborah’s mum, Elaine, is currently an inpatient at the hospice and won’t be well enough to make the trip. The couple were offered the blessing so Deborah’s mum could be involved in such a special occasion.
Within 24 hours, two local suppliers (Weddings by Dragonfly and Talking Balloons) agreed to help by dressing the Chapel and the Visitor Room and supplied balloons and table sprinkles. Many staff and volunteers chipped in and pulled out all the stops to supply a welcoming wedding feast for the special couple and guests.
Thank you so much to absolutely everyone who made it possible for Elaine to see Deborah and Johan have their blessing. Congratulations Deborah and Johan and we wish you all the very best for your wedding later this year!
The #SparkleNightWalk has raised a staggering £127,000 which is absolutely fantastic! Thank you SO much everybody!
