Patients and staff at Lakelands Hospice, Corby, sported big beautiful hats when they held an Ascot Day.

Pimms was served at the hospice, in Butland Road, and there was also entertainment, horse racing and a two-course lunch.

Cathy Langtree, nurse manage at the hospice, said: “The day was fantastic and everybody came dressed to impress.

“Great fun was had by all. I would like to say a special thank-you to the hospice cook who prepared a fantastic lunch for everyone, and to all the volunteers and entertainers who helped out.”

Lakelands is holding its summer bazaar on Sunday, July 15, in the hospice grounds and it is hoped hundreds will attend.

Paul Marlow, community fundraiser for the hospice, said: “The summer fete is an important event for the hospice and it is hoped that it will bring in much-needed funds. We receive no Government cash and fundraising is vital to keep the hospice open.”

Attractions at the bazaar, which will run from midday to 4pm, will include a tombola, bouncy castle, face-painting, crafts, jewellery, cakes, games, bric-a-brac, records, CDs and refreshments. Admission is 50p, with no entrance charge for children.
