Model offering in memory of Pershore uncle

Evesham Editorial 2nd Dec, 2017   0

A TALENTED hospice supporter has donated a hand-made version of Worcester Cathedral in a bid to raise money in memory of her Pershore uncle.

Ros Morris, whose uncle Phil Day was cared for at St Richard’s Hospice, spent months carefully crafting the model using a technique similar to cross stitch.

Basing her design on photographs of the historic structure, she weaved into a material called plastic canvas before assembling the pieces into a 3D building.

“It is just something different, there aren’t any others like it as far as I know. St Richard’s is a good cause. I hope it raises a good amount.”




Mr Day was cared for at St Richard’s Hospice and died in May 2017.

His wife, Carolyn Day and daughter Samantha Andrews, brought the model to the hospice in October.


Mrs Day said: “We feel that the model is so beautiful – it would be so lovely if the hospice could use it for fundraising.”

Charlie Homer, hospice fund-raiser, said: “We were thrilled to receive this fantastic donation. The skill which has gone into creating the beautiful model cathedral is absolutely incredible.

“We plan to raffle the cathedral to raise money for our specialist care at a future fund-raising event.”

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative and end of life care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their loved ones.

Each year the hospice team supports more than 3,000 patients, family members and bereaved people in Worcestershire.
