An exciting week of high fashion fused with community collaboration in Cambridge is set to raise awareness and funds for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity next week.

 

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is proud to be associated with Cambridge Style Week which starts this coming Tuesday (15 March), with a run of special fashion-centric events taking place in and around the city until Sunday 20 March.

The innovative and community collaborative event is dedicated to bringing high fashion to Cambridge whilst showcasing collecting by local boutiques, designers and retailers.

As the chosen charity, alongside Born to be Beautiful, funds and awareness will be raised for the Hospice through fundraising activities at the Night of Fashion flagship catwalk events on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 March at The Guildhall.

The charity says; "We are delighted that the association stretches right across the six day programme, spanning events at stores around the city, special offers, panel discussions, a Fashion Trail, collaborations with the Cambridge School of Art showcasing new designers, Cambridge BID and Cambridge Science Festival."

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.

We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.

It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
