City Hospice had a fantastic time at St David’s Centre celebrating St David’s Day on 1 March, raising an incredible £1,720.

With a bustling team of volunteers and performers, we made our way down to the centre in time to catch the Friday morning shoppers. Kicking off the day was a beautiful flute solo by Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama student Cathy Tsang, followed by the Cytsain Choir, a mixed voice choir whose enthusiasm for singing shone through in their performances.

After a short lunch break, we saw some amazing back-to-back performances from Ysgol Plasmawr’s school choir, Ukulele Wolves, acapella group Cardiff University Interchorus, Tom Lazell with a solo guitar and vocal performance, and Technicolour Choir.

While the brilliant performers entertained the shoppers, our team of volunteers were there all day, along with our brand-new City Hospice heart made by Graham Sweet Studios, collecting donations and raising awareness of City Hospice’s work as the only home-based specialist palliative care provider in the capital.

The treats didn’t stop there! The wonderful City Hospice Knit Whits helped our fundraising efforts by knitting beautiful daffodils so that everyone could get into the St David’s Day spirit.

As St David’s Centre’s charity of the year, we receive incredible support through various fundraising and volunteering efforts, making a meaningful difference to the local community while doing so. Funds raised by the Centre ensure that we can continue to care for patients and their families at what can be the most difficult time of their lives.

Mac Smith, Fundraising & Events Manager at City Hospice, said: “What a successful day and incredible show of support from our volunteers and shoppers at St David’s Centre. It’s been wonderful to share the celebration of Welsh culture on this special day while raising vital funds for our services.”
