Event sees thousands raised for St Nic’s
A record amount has been raised for St Nicholas Hospice Care after a music night proves a hit.
St Nic’s Does Elvis and Neil Diamond, which is organised by John and Denise Maxim and their supporters has resulted in a wonderful £8,054 for the charity, the most it has ever raised.
The pair, who work tirelessly to support and raise awareness for the hospice, which helps people across West Suffolk and Thetford facing dying, caring and grief, have also raised a further £329.34 for the cause through a squares competition arranged as part of the Brandon Festival.
Lizzie Cross, the hospice’s community fundraiser, said: “To say John and Denise Maxim are stalwart supporters of St Nicholas Hospice Care really would be an understatement. They are both dedicated to the hospice and are always willing to support the charity.
“This year, St Nic’s Does Elvis and Neil Diamond raised the most it has ever raised, a wonderful £8,054, a sum we are so grateful for.
“John and Denise are also great champions of the hospice in their community, raising funds and awareness throughout the year. The £329.34 they raised as part of a squares competition during the Brandon Festival back in June is appreciated. Thank you.”
John and Denise have also received a recognition award from Roy Brame, the Chairman of Breckland Council, for all their charity work and work in the local community.
“I am so pleased that all the efforts they make locally and for St Nic’s have been recognised. It is an award that is much deserved,” added Lizzie.
