A celebratory choir concert at Bhaktivedanta Manor helped raise £500 for Peace Hospice Care.

The event which took place last month was held in George Harrison's tribute gardens at the Letchmore Heath based Manor and was attended by more than one hundred people in the local community including former Peace Hospice Care Chairman of trustees Stuart Nagler.

Following the celebratory occasion, members of the Bhaktivedanta community came to tour the Hospice and hand over the fundraising cheque.

Peace Hospice Care Director of Patient Services, Jackie Tritton welcomed Radha Mohan das, Secretary of Bhaktivedanta  and Devaki dasi, Communications Secretary and was able to offer information on our services which are available to patients and their familes of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds across South West Herts.

Jackie explained that the Hospice offers the service of a Spiritual Care coordinator embracing all faiths and Radha expressed his respect for Peace Hospice Care.  

'You are a respected and worthwhile organisation,' he said. 'We received a warm welcome and lovely tour. We were impressed with both your building and location.  We felt the cosy and homely environment, friendly staff, clean and modern facilities with nice accommodation, professional counselling rooms and an impressive range of services.'
