The Lancaster Guardian’s campaign to Save Our Hospice kicked off with a bang on Saturday night.

Reporters and staff from the The Visitor and Lancaster Guardian were on hand at Lancaster City’s Giant Axe as part of the city’s fireworks spectacular as we launched our bid to secure the long-term future of St John’s Hospice in style.

This year the Dolly Blues’ venue to view the Lancaster display, which saw fireworks shot from the castle in a spectacular show, hosted fundraising activities in aid of the Slyne Road charity.

We were out and about in the crowd telling everyone about the campaign and handing out leaflets kindly sponsored and put together by Chris Whitehead and Morecambe Press.

We also held a collection in aid of the Save Our Hospice campaign despite the less than favourable weather conditions!

Thanks to anyone who was kind enough to take a leaflet or donate vital funds, however small.
