A Doncaster family and their friends have raised over £2380 for our St John’s Hospice in Balby, Doncaster in memory of Pauline Humble.
Pauline chose to spend her final two weeks in St John’s Hospice, whilst there her family were astounded with how much respect and care was shown from the staff, when Pauline passed away her family noted it was with a lot of dignity thanks to the staff at the hospice.
The family wanted to thank the hospice by raising money so they decided on an evening event held in Pauline’s memory. The event took place at Askern Miners’ Welfare Club and was supported by live music from Brass Beatz, Pauline’s brother Graham Cowell plays the trumpet in the band and ensured they were there to perform.
The event was a full family affair as they all helped to bring Pauline’s friends and extended family together to raise money. Louise McQuillan, Pauline’s daughter and Pauline’s nieces Sophie Humble and Kirsty Hodgson organised the successful event with the help of Sally Tucker.
Louise McQuillan said: “The night was fantastic and everyone who came along enjoyed it, each and every person who came to remember mum was so generous, our family can’t believe how much money was raised! Thank you to everyone who donated. The staff at the hospice are amazing and I’m glad mum felt safe and happy there.”
Lindsey Richards of the hospice said: “All of us at the hospice want to say a massive thank you, the money raised will be a massive help and it’s lovely to hear how much of an impact our staff can have on people’s lives. We are very grateful for all your support.”
