Matron Jo Craddock from Cransley Hospice (www.cransleyhospice.org.uk) added "The work of Cransley Hospice is only able to function and sustain the high quality level of care expected for two reasons. We have a close-knit team and we rely on local charitable donations and fund raising activities to fund our operation. I would like to thank the Concert for life for supporting us with their Big Band Concert."
Claudine Combrie Manager from Integrated Cancer Therapies (www.integratedcancertherapies.org.uk) said “I would like to thank The Rutland Big Band and organisers of the Concert for Life for your amazing support. It is very humbling to see so many people who feel the work we do is close to their hearts”.
