Over 1200 Raised for St Peters Hospice Bristol

Fascinating Rhythm raise over £1200 for St Peter’s Hospice Bristol

On February 15, 2024, the ladies of Fascinating Rhythm warmly welcomed Nick Wilson, a Community Fundraiser for St Peter’s Hospice. Throughout 2023, the dedicated members of Fascinating Rhythm and RhythmMix (a smaller group of the Fascinating Rhythm chorus members) worked diligently to raise funds for St Peter’s Hospice through various activities, including singing at Yate Shopping Centre, Cribbs Causeway, and the walk to remember at Ashton Court. They also contributed to a Music with Mummy children’s event at Easter and provided refreshments and sang at Wotton Teas in the town hall in Wotton Under Edge.

Their hard work paid off, resulting in an impressive £1245.45 raised. During this special night, Fascinating Rhythm’s co-chair Anne-marie Collier presented a cheque to Nick Wilson. Nick highlighted the crucial role St Peter’s Hospice plays in providing palliative end-of-life care for patients and families dealing with cancer, lung, heart, and neurological diseases.

Covering a large area around Bristol and serving a population of 1.2 million people, St Peter’s Hospice supports 3000 patients annually, with 90% receiving care at home. The funds raised by Fascinating Rhythm equate to providing 60 therapy sessions for bereaved families and children, sustaining the 24-hour advice line for an additional 3 days, or covering the average cost of caring for a patient at home.

Expressing her pleasure in supporting the local hospice, Anne-marie stated,

“The ladies of Fascinating Rhythm truly worked hard to raise the money.” Nick emphasised the significance of local groups like Fascinating Rhythm, stating, “Having local support matters so much, it helps us ensure that care through the hospice is freely available for 3000 people a year.”

Nick stayed for the first half of the chorus rehearsal, praising Fascinating Rhythm’s talent and expressing gratitude for their efforts in fundraising for the hospice.

Fascinating Rhythm’s charity for 2024 is Off the Record a mental health social movement for young people aged 11-25.

Fascinating Rhythm rehearses every Thursday between 7 pm and 10 pm.  Contact us if you would like to join us.
