A regional daily has paid tribute to the people of its patch who helped make a new hospice unit a reality with a front page wrap.
The Bristol Post ran the wraparound after a campaign it successfully ran for the past year with the city’s St Peter’s Hospice helped to raise £1.5m to help pay for the facility.
Individuals, businesses and funding organisations right across the city supported the appeal, of which actress Caroline Quentin is patron, organising fundraisers and donating cash.
The Post ran the celebratory wrap on Thursday.
St Peter’s Hospice chief executive Simon Caraffi told the Post: “It is the people of Bristol that have made this happen.
“With this fantastic help we now have an incredible building and a 21st century hospice for Bristol. Not a penny spent on this project has come from statutory funds.
“Every pound, every penny donated has come from our supporters. From people organising fundraising events to support from fundraising trusts.
“Bristol should be proud of itself. We have achieved what we set out to achieve and we’ve done it together.”
HTFP has approached the Post for a comment.
