During my term as Mayor of Preston, the Mayoress and I picked St Catherine's Hospice as our chosen charity to support with various events and activities.
St Catherine's is a much-loved local charity which is very close to our hearts. It carries out vital work in the Central Lancashire area, caring and supporting patients living with serious illness. Their focus is on helping people to have quality of life and treating the whole person, not just the condition.
On Friday May 15th at 2pm we will take part in our finale fundraising event! We will perform a Tai Chi fan dance with Feixia Yu from Confucius Institute at UCLan, Master Zhang Yu and a group of UCLan students who travelled to Beijing with us earlier this year to promote Preston as a place to live and study. During our trip we were trained in fan dance performance skills – which will now be put on show for people in Preston to see, on the Grassy Knoll next to the Guild Hall.
We would love to end our fundraising efforts on a high for such a wonderful charity, and encourage anyone who enjoyed our performance to make a donation to St Catherine’s.
Thank you for your wonderful support!
