Yoakley House Garden Party Presentation
Posted on 11 July 2013
Pilgrims Hospices were delighted to receive an invitation by residents of Yoakley House to their annual garden party. Mr and Mrs Wood presented Karen Kenward, Regional Fundraising Manager for Pilgrims Hospice Thanet with a cheque for £550. Residents had put together a programme of fundraising events over the past twelve months and Pilgrims Hospices were chosen to receive a donation.
The sun shone on the magnificent gardens of Yoakley House and residents were able to spoil their guests with a delicious afternoon tea. Karen Kenward said “Yoakley House is one of Thanet’s hidden treasures and the beautiful grounds are a real credit to those that live there. It was great to see so many happy faces as summer finally arrives. We are most grateful to Yoakley House for their kind and generous donation. Pilgrims Hospices need to raise in excess of £10.5 million each year in order to be able to provide palliative care services free of charge tothelocal community of east Kent. The majority of these funds come from the generosity our own local community and we really cannot thank them enough
