Red Lion Fest, hosted by The Red Lion pub in Aldershot on 9th September, has raised a fantastic £2,615 for local hospice care charity Phyllis Tuckwell!
Beautiful September sunshine provided the perfect backdrop to this wonderful festival, which saw the local community come together to enjoy a brilliant line-up of live music from The Common People, The TR5’s, Free Peace Sweet, Caz & The Traitors, Extreme Ways, Treble 21, Surrey Ukeaholics and Delayed Departure. There was a bouncy castle and face-painting for the kids, and an array of food and drink, including a mouthwatering hog roast, waffles and shakes, and a sizzling BBQ.
Jenny, landlady of The Red Lion, expressed her gratitude to all who attended and contributed to the success of the event. “We are overwhelmed by the incredible support from the community and the generosity of our patrons,” she said. “It’s heartwarming to see how everyone came together for such a great cause. The funds raised will make a significant difference to the lives of those receiving care from Phyllis Tuckwell.”
“We would like to thank Jenny and everyone at The Red Lion pub for organising this brilliant and hugely popular local event to help support our care,” said Samantha West, Community Fundraiser at Phyllis Tuckwell. “We are so lucky to have such a wonderful local community, and we really appreciate all the time and effort they put into organising fantastic events such as this, to raise money for us.”
£2,615 could pay for just over three weeks’ care from one of Phyllis Tuckwell’s Hospice Care at Home nurses. These nurses visit patients who are spending their last days at home, providing them with compassionate end of life care, and offering their families and carers practical and emotional support too.
