Fundraising Drive Raises £2,000 for the Hospice of St Francis

The memory of Peter Mills, a former Dacorum Borough Council employee, was honoured at a recent  Hot Rods custom car show. More than 90 cars motored along to support the day as part of a fundraising drive for fellow Business Ambassador The Hospice of St Francis..

The event, on 6 May, raised £2,000 for the Mayor’s charity, The Hospice of St Francis and was co-organised by our Chief Executive Sally Marshall, in memory of her late husband Peter, a Hot Rods car owner and enthusiast.

Sally said: “It was a lovely day and a fitting tribute to Peter. We are very grateful to the local businesses that donated to the tombola and auction and helped raise such a fantastic sum of money.”

Carolyn Addison, Head of Corporate Fundraising at The Hospice of St Francis, added: “The Hot Rods event was such a brilliant and different initiative to hold in memory of Peter. We would especially like to thank Kevin and Shirley Catling for helping to organise the event and are delighted that so many people turned out to see the cars and support the Hospice. Two thousand pounds is a fantastic sum, which will help us care for more precious lives, like Peter’s, in the future. Thank you so much to all involved.”

The Hospice of St Francis is a charity that provides free, expert care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in West Herts and South Bucks, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or socio-economic background. They also support their families, carers and those close to them.
