Hospice Aid UK hosted a ladies pamper evening in Ricksmanworth.

A wide range of professionals including beauticians, nail technicians, health coaches and personal trainers offered free 15 minute treatments.

There was a selection of stalls, plus a prize raffle, at the event in The Watersmeet theatre.

Hospice Aid UK delivers much-needed grants to hospices nationwide, and the charity is currently raising emergency funds for two children's hospices.

One is hoping to stage a summer music festival for the teenagers who are being treated at the hospice.

The other desperately needs to buy a specialist bed for a terminally ill little boy who is coming to spend six months with them.It is the only UK charity which supports all hospices who apply, with every penny spent staying in the UK.

Hospice Aid UK provides support in all types of ways, whether to help buy specialist equipment, cover hospice running costs, supply emergency funding or in other areas that can be difficult to get funding for.
