Pat’s 80th birthday gift to Hospice at Home West Cumbria

When people wish Pat Mulford a happy birthday, charities around the region cheer.

Pat, who turned 80 this month, held a birthday party which raised £770 for Hospice at Home West Cumbria.

Stella Walsh, Senior Fundraiser said: “Less than a quarter of our annual income comes from the NHS, the remainder needs to be raised through our fundraising activities, voluntary donations and legacies.”

“We receive overwhelming support from the community and on behalf of Hospice at Home West Cumbria, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Pat for choosing to support us – without the generosity of people like him we simply wouldn’t exist.”
