Newlyweds’ gift of kindness

A generous couple have chosen to support John Taylor Hospice on their wedding day by gifting their guests with charity wedding favours.

Kirsty Rochelle-Kler and her husband Andy tied the knot in Lindos, Rhodes on 14 August and kindly chose to support John Taylor Hospice on their big day.

The happy couple presented their guests with hospice wedding favour pin badges to thank them for sharing in their special occasion – and to let them know that a charitable donation had been made to the hospice on their behalf.

For Kirsty, John Taylor Hospice is a charity close to her heart. Her aunt, Mary Moorehouse, has worked as a nurse in the hospice’s Inpatient Unit for over 20 years. John Taylor teams also helped to care for her grandmother – Mary’s mum Betty – last year.

Kirsty said: “My nan received care at home in March 2018 which was absolutely outstanding and as a family we are very grateful for everything they did to make my nan as comfortable as possible. I just thought it would be a lovely touch to honour my nan at our wedding as she was everything to us.”

Katie Mitchell, Head of Fundraising at John Taylor Hospice, said: “This is a wonderful way to support local families in need of hospice care and a beautiful tribute to Betty. We are so grateful to Kirsty and Andy for thinking of us on their special day. We send them our congratulations and wish them every happiness for the future.”

Charity pin badges can add the perfect finishing touch to your tables. They are a way to show your support for John Taylor Hospice and a meaningful keepsake for your guests to take home.
