Would you like to meet new people and have fun while helping a worthwhile cause?

The Julia’s House local friends group is inviting people to come along its annual meeting on Wednesday, January 17 and find out more about how its members support the children’s hospice charity.

The meeting will be held at Pilgrim House in Hope Square, Weymouth at 7pm and is open to anyone interested in raising funds to help families caring for children with life-limiting conditions.

A spokesman for Julia’s House said: “Julia’s House relies on donations and public fundraising for 94 per cent of its income so community groups play an important role in the charity.”
