A huge thank you to the team behind the scenes in particular the Vocal Couple in Cyprus . There were a lot of tired people by 22:30 last night and in Cyprus it was after midnight. Even Bronte the dog was ready for a sleep.
We had support from all over the country and even from Cyprus and Spain in the end so a big thank you to everybody.
So final figure when we have it and well done Adderley you are amazing. We will be accepting donations in the next couple of days just contact firstname.lastname@example.org for bank details or cash donations to Iain Wilson, Willow Lodge or the Elves at Adderley Barns.

Facts and figures from Hope House
1,948 children are living locally with a terminal illness right now. 3 of these families face the pain of their child dying every week in this area. We need to raise £6.5 million every year just to keep our hospice doors open, in Oswestry and Conwy. We are caring for families in and around Market Drayton and across Shropshire so any fundraising that takes place is truly going right back into the community.
As reported in the media charities are facing an uncertain future as donations plummet and fundraising events are cancelled.
Hope House Children’s Hospices are not immune to the impact of the pandemic. We are a local charity who help children and families at the most distressing time of their lives and in order to ensure that we can be here for everyone who needs us it is vital that our local community help in whatever way they can.
In spite of our loss of income of over £1 million in 2020 thanks to our shops being closed and events being cancelled, our highly skilled nurses are continuing to provide end of life and critical care at both hospices. There is no doubt that the children and families need the support of Hope House and Ty Gobaith more than ever. Our supporters are making it possible for us to continue with our vital work in the most difficult of times.
We are also now facing additional cost of providing PPE equipment for our nurses and families, from the FFP masks, to aprons to scrubs to additional staff required to meet social distancing requirements. In times of reduced income, these additional costs are tough to bear. For one child to have sufficient PPE for 10 days, it costs Hope House and Ty Gobaith £780.00.
Since 2002, your fundraising efforts in Adderley have raised £1,754.15 which is absolutely wonderful. We are so appreciative or every penny that comes through our doors.
Look what arrived at Willow Lodge on Monday! Amazing decorations for the village tree from Adderley School. Later today (weather permitting) we will go down to the tree and put them on for everybody to enjoy. Thank you Adderley School.
Not content with entertaining you all with the Adderley Switch On, we now bring you another opportunity to get together (virtually) with the Great Adderley Christmas Quiz! Details to follow later, but can you put the date in your diary now for a family entertainment on Friday 18th December, 7.15 for 7.30pm Its going to be good, just wait til you hear who is going to host the quiz!
We can’t sing carols to raise money for Hope House Childrens Hospice this year, so we hope you will join us on the quiz with all donations to Hope House. That would be lovely.
