Ladies Lunch Club news

New spa bathroom!

Posted on 21 December 2018 by Katie Ronald

The Ladies Lunch Club held in aid of Ayrshire Hospice has recently helped to fund a new spa bathroom within the in-patient unit of the hospice at Racecourse Road in Ayr.  The bathroom provides a relaxed and therapeutic atmosphere with modern facilities and accessories which helps the team to deliver a personalised level of care and support for patients.  The club committee recently visited the hospice for a tour of the new facility.

Margaret Cook, joint Chairperson of the Ladies Lunch Club said, “The Ladies Lunch Club committee were very impressed by the refurbished bathroom and the obvious benefit patients will get from using it.  The nurses are delighted with the use it has had already and look forward to many more patients enjoying the facility.”

The Ladies Lunch Club committee is appealing to ladies across South Ayrshire to join the hospice Ladies Lunch Club in the new year so that they can continue their excellent fundraising success.  The club meets on a monthly basis on the third Wednesday of the month from September to June at Western House Hotel in Ayr. There is an annual membership fee of £10 and supporters receive a delicious two course lunch at the cost of £16 per month.

The ladies come from across Ayrshire including Ayr, Prestwick, Troon, Dundonald and as far as Kilmarnock and Irvine.

Lyn Bateman, Senior Fundraising Officer at the Ayrshire Hospice said, “The Ladies Lunch Club has been in existence for over 29 years and raised well over £264,000 during this time!  The new luxury bathroom is only one of many areas within the hospice that they have helped with over the years.  The hard work and time given by the club committee is never taken for granted and we are extremely fortunate to have such a loyal base of supporters.  We’d love new members to join the club for what is always an enjoyable afternoon.”

The next lunch will take place on Wednesday 23rd January where the guest speaker will be Linda Rayner giving a talk on Antarctica.
