Calendars for 2016 are now for sale in St Peter & St James shops and Reception in aid of the Hospice. Please support the Hospice by purchasing these calendars for next year.

The calendar includes all the photographs that were shortlisted from a competition the Hospice ran over the summer months. The prize for the overall winner is a digital camera, donated by a supporter, which was won by Gillian Paull, one of the Hospice’s volunteer receptionists. All the profits from the sale of the calendars will go to the Hospice to help it continue providing its vital services to the community and the calendars cost just £4.99.

On winning, Gillian Paull, commented, “I’m so excited – I’ve never won anything before!”

Colin Burgess, Chief Executive of St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “The calendar competition has been a huge success. Thank you to everyone for their entries and for voting for their favourite picture. Congratulations to Gillian and to the other 12 entrants whose pictures were chosen to be included in the calendar. It’s wonderful seeing this level of support for St Peter & St James and I hope lots of people will buy the calendars. Very reasonably priced at just £4.99 and with all profits going to support the hospice they are sure to sell out quickly.”

The Hospice relies on the local community for 86% of its funding and everyone at St Peter & St James is grateful for the support and generosity.
