Our supporters work really hard to raise vital funds within our community by hosting creative events in aid of St. Michael’s Hospice. We are excited to share the upcoming supported events below – thank you and well done to everyone who raised vital funds for our patients!
Keith’s Christmas Baubles
1 – 31 December 2023 | Brackley Way, Basingstoke, RG22 6LL
Our wonderful supporter, Keith, goes all out with decorating his house in all things Christmas each year for the residents of Basingstoke to enjoy. His incredible display attracts people from across Basingstoke. As well as being impressive all day long, he also has light shows throughout the afternoon, which really showcase the range of decorations he has! On Christmas Eve he also hosts a Santas Grotto for local children, meaning that everyone gets the chance to meet Santa.
Keith does all this to support St. Michael’s Hospice, by asking people who come to see his display to donate to the charity. If you want to see an incredible display of Christmas decorations, head to Brackley Way this December!
