We’re absolutely delighted to support the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice’s brand new event on 18 February at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow: Gin & Jammies.
This amazing ladies lunch will be hosted by entertainer Edward Reid with special guest Miss Scotland Romy McCahill and guests attending including actor Laura Fraser.
Wearing jammies is optional but hopefully, the hundreds of women coming along on the day will be in their finest pjs (no scruffies!) while they enjoy a gin reception, courtesy of Rock Rose Gin, a three-course lunch, fashion show and some retail therapy.
There are a few tickets left, priced £75, to book contact [email protected]
This fundraising event will help take Glasgow’s Hospice one step closer to reaching the £21million target of its Brick by Brick Appeal to build a new home in the city’s Bellahouston Park.
This is such an exciting time in the hospice’s history as it prepares to move in 2018.
A new home for Glasgow’s Hospice means services can be expanded to allow it to offer 21st-century palliative care to young people aged 16 years and over, making the hospice one of the first in Scotland to transition young people to adult hospice care from children’s services.
Thanks to incredible fundraising efforts the Brick by Brick Appeal now has just £1m to go to reach its target.
The new hospice will provide five-star comfort with 16 private en-suite bedrooms with private terraces, soft seated areas and domestic style open-plan kitchens, with the focus on patients and family while offering high-quality, cost-effective care.
The accommodation will allow patients and families to eat together, providing more space, independence and privacy to allow greater opportunity for normal family life.
Architects have designed the new hospice with four traditional linked villas, and year-round access to outdoor space is pivotal. Bedrooms can open into courtyards to create a social space. A wall of windows opens directly to the garden, with a private terrace to take beds outside on sunny days.
This will be the first hospice in the country with dedicated beds for young patients, as well as a lounge area to relax with friends and family.
The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice provides free person-centred and family-focused palliative care and support for all, irrespective of age, gender, race, faith or ethnicity. Its specialist staff and wonderful volunteers are trained to work with individuals and families who are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.
It provides support for the physical and emotional problems related to a life-limiting illness to more than 1200 new patients and families every year. This is often at home, but can also be at outpatient clinics, in the hospice’s day unit, or as an inpatient.
It also provides bereavement counselling to all ages, including children from the age of two.
The aim of the hospice’s care is to support people to live as well as possible for as long as possible. Its motto is: we cannot add days to lives but we can add life to days.
