A GARDEN party was held at the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed as a thank you to staff, supporters and volunteers.
More than 200 people attended the event, including Barbara Lewis, who chairs Nettlebed Parish Council, and Henley Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak, who has chosen Sue Ryder as one of his charities for his year of office.
Also there was Bill Banham, who has been a volunteer for 23 years and recently received his Arctic Star medal from Home Secretary Theresa May.
Guests enjoyed tea and a glass of Pimm’s while listening to music from Terry Parsons and his band.
Pam Chatfield, the hospice manager, updated guests on the development of day therapy services and the hospice’s planned move to the new Townlands Hospital in Henley.
Moira Logie, regional fund-raiser for Henley and the Nettlebed area, thanked everyone who had contributed.
