To thank the local community for everything they’ve done over the last few months, Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice are holding a festival weekend of virtual activities to kick start the summer.
The Virtual Festival Weekender takes places from Friday 24th July to Sunday 26th July with a programme of activities for all the family, from live entertainment to virtual bingo, fitness classes and arts and crafts all streamed into your homes.
Highlights includes CBeebies’ star Andy Day reading a campfire story, live bunting making with arts and crafts expert Pragya Kumar, Pilates with Ellie from Pilates Greenwich and music from local pop sensation Chloe Diane.
The Virtual Weekender will also include a virtual tour of the Hospice’s stunning grounds as part of their first ever Virtual Open Gardens. Staff from the Volunteer Pub in Bexley will be bringing the weekend to a close with some live Virtual Bingo.
Augusta Adu, Events Manager, said: “The weekend is an opportunity to thank the local community for their amazing support over the past few months and to celebrate the summer holidays.
With the support of our wonderful community, we’ve been able to care for more patients and their loved ones during the covid crisis. I’d also like to thank all our festival weekend partners who are volunteering their time and skills to help support our Hospice.”
With an increase in demand for their services and a huge shortfall in funding, due to fundraising events cancelled, the Hospice is fighting to keep vital service going and provide care and support to local families. There is no charge for events however anyone wanting to support the Hospice will have the opportunity to make a donation over the weekend.
