Charity will be going the whole hog for fundraising event in Ullenhall
1:00pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in News
PEOPLE are invited to make a real pig of themselves in the name of a good cause as an English medieval pig roast event is held for Marie Curie Hospice.
Marie Curie occupational therapy technician Jackie Brooks and her team of veteran fundraisers Amanda-Jane Lowe, Dina Hunt, Cathy Sewell, Jane Strugnell and Joy Cole will hold their sixth ‘Around the World Dinner Club’ event on Saturday, October 27 at Ullenhall Village Hall on Henley Rd, Ullenhall.
The theme for this event is an English medieval pig roast, although a vegetarian option will also be available.
It will consist of three courses created by the team to raise funds to support Jackie Brook’s charity treks in Borneo and the Sahara during 2013. These Marie Curie treks are in aid of the new hospice for the West Midlands currently being built in Solihull.
Two-thirds of people in the West Midlands die in hospital – the place they least want to be. As the local population is getting older, Marie Curie urgently needs to provide more terminally ill people with the high-quality care they deserve in their community, at the end of their lives.
Tickets for the event, which will include plenty of live entertainment, cost £12, and are available from email@example.com or by calling 0121 254 7800.
