At City Hospice we are delighted to have been chosen as the Charity of the Year by Ukulele Wolves.
Michael Mathews from the ukulele band explains why City Hospice has been chosen
Every year we choose a Charity of the Year and all of our players put their names in a hat. Whoever is pulled out choses the charity we’ll support for that year.
This year I am delighted that City Hospice has been chosen as we already have a good relationship with the hospice. Last year we entertained patients in the Day Centre. It was a great afternoon and it was lovely to see so many happy smiling faces. We created lots of noise and had lots of fun.
On a personal note I am so pleased that we are supporting City Hospice. I’ve had such wonderful care and support personally. My nurse Claire Jones is exceptional and everyone connected with the hospice has been absolutely fantastic during my illness. It’s really positive way to be able to give something back.
Michael explains how they’ll be raising money
We play occasional gigs for charity and entertain in the likes of care homes and other events. We also hold an annual event in St David’s Hall with ukulele bands from all over the country which is a great fundraiser.
