Show some love for children’s hospice this Valentine’s Day

28 January 2020 chsw Fundraising

Couples are being invited to show some love for Children’s Hospice South West this Valentine’s Day.

Queen Anne’s Café on the Strand in Barnstaple is holding a Valentine’s Dinner and Dance in aid of the charity on Friday, February 14.

Diners can enjoy canapes and prosecco on arrival, followed by a two-course dinner and live music by 1940’s-inspired harmony trio The Marionettes. There will also be a raffle and auction in aid of CHSW, which offers respite to nearly 200 families at its Little Bridge House children’s hospice in Fremington.

Queen Anne’s supported the charity throughout 2019, raising £3,811.75. Owners Samantha and Paul Rhodes and staff held a variety of fundraising events, including Halloween and Christmas fun days, a race night, bingo and quizzes. Younger customers were even invited to take a selfie with a giant teddy bear in return for a donation to CHSW.

Paul said: “It has been an absolute pleasure supporting the CHSW; the staff and volunteers from Little Bridge House do such amazing work, and all of us at Queen Anne’s are delighted that we can help through our various events.

We look forward to many more in the future.

A limited number of tickets for the Valentine’s Dinner and Dance are still available, priced £29.50 per person. They are available to buy at the café, or by calling 01271 325232.
