Long-time Hospice supporter raises money from her 90th Birthday celebrations

Jean Lewis, a dedicated supporter of St Luke’s Hospice, celebrated her 90th Birthday on Saturday 8th August and helped raise money for the Hospice during her Birthday gathering.

Jean has supported the Hospice for many years. She and her late husband Don were members of the Northwich Support Group from its inception. They both spent many days participating in street collections, car boot sales and major charity events to raise money for St Luke’s. Jean also became an early lottery collector around Hartford as well as worked at the Northwich St Luke’s shop for 28 years.

Thanks to the recent good weather, Jean was able to celebrate her milestone Birthday with family, friends and neighbours in a lovely outdoor party at her home. Jean is one of five surviving children, with one of her siblings living on the West Coast of America. Due to Covid-19 restrictions a larger Birthday gathering wasn’t feasible. However, with the joys of modern technology, Jean was able to connect with her siblings over video call which was the first visual contact for most of the siblings in a long while.

Over the video call, family sang ‘Happy Birthday’ and candles were blown out. Jean asked in lieu of gifts for her 90th Birthday to have guests donate to St Luke’s Hospice. Jean’s generosity and continued support of the Hospice will help St Luke’s to care for patients across mid and south Cheshire.
