Sylvia’s Handy Bags for Alice House

Alice House Hospice are holding their second Summer Fayre on 25th May between 11am and 3pm at the Holistic Wellbeing Centre on Holdforth Road. 

There will be stalls, children’s activities, donkey rides, fairground rides and much, much more. 

Long-time supporter of Alice House, Sylvia Anderson, has been busy creating beautiful homemade crafts, including a batch of great ‘handy bags’ which she will be selling to raise funds for the Hospice on the day. 

Sylvia said, “I have had a very long connection with the Hospice; my first husband was cared for by the hospice when it was in Hutton Avenue, I attend the Hospice Friends Group 4 times a year and I also try to help the fundraising team by donating raffle prizes to help them with their many events. 

I love crafting even though life is busy, I am full time carer for my husband Reg, I find crafting helps give a bit of ‘me time’.

I often use the time that Reg attends Day Care at Alice House to put my skills to the test.  I have just made a batch of gorgeous ‘handy bags’ which I will be selling at my very own stall at the Hospice’s Summer Fayre on 25th May.”

Rebecca Jobson, Senior Manager Communications & Supporter Care said, “Sylvia has spent a lot of time and put a lot of love into crafting the ‘handy bags’ and we can’t wait to see what she has to offer for  sale at the Summer Fayre.  Thank you Sylvia!
