Christmas Charity Collection for St Giles Hospice

Traditionally, we arrange a charity collection at our Christmas Dinner in lieu of exchanging Christmas cards. However, the meal at the Lakeside will unfortunately not be happening in December but we are hoping to meet there in the summer instead. After a brief discussion at the online AGM, our new chairperson Lesley suggested St Giles Hospice as our Christmas charity, in memory of Rupert’s late wife Mal who was a volunteer at their Ashby shop. This was a popular choice with those at the AGM.

As we are not easily able to collect donations as a club, they can instead be made directly to St Giles in one of these ways:

1. Online at

2. Giving cash or a cheque to one of the local shops (Ashby, Swadlincote, Burton)

3. Sending a cheque to: St Giles Hospice, Fisherwick Road, Whittington, Lichfield. WS14 9LH

Please mark the envelope ‘Fundraising’.

If anyone is eligible and wishes to Gift Aid their donation (thus giving the charity 25% more at no extra cost) you will need to include your name and address and declare that you are a taxpayer.

Thank you to anyone who decides to donate.
