Sidmouth Hospice receives �1,000 from jacket show
Sidmouth Hospice nurses work to care for people at home
SIDMOUTH Hospice, whose four nurses work out in the community from their May Terrace base, have been presented with �1,000 – some of the money raised at a recent fashion show.
Just Jackets was the last show to be organised by Sidmouth resident Kate Norbury and friends, and it raised a whopping �1,900.
The sell-out event at Branscombe Village Hall, was Kate’s swansong, after previous shows, done under the Branscombe WI banner, proved just as successful.
Hospice nurses Rachael MacKinnon and Christine Hussey, together with the charity’s secretary, Carrie Machin, received the cheque on Friday.

Rachael said the hospice had a patient-funded hospice bed in Sidmouth Hospital
