Vince Hill to guest host the 2017 Sue Ryder Nettlebed Fireworks Event

The UK charity Sue Ryder has announced legendary singer Vince Hill as the guest star host for their annual fireworks display, taking place at their Nettlebed Hospice grounds on Saturday 28 October. Vince, most famous for his 1967 mega-hit “Edelweiss” and currently celebrating his 55th Anniversary as a solo singer, comments:

I am thrilled to be Sue Ryder’s guest host for their 25th Anniversary of the annual Nettlebed Fireworks fund-raiser on Saturday, 28 October 2017.

Nettlebed is a Sue Ryder hospice near Henley-on-Thames. They care for people living with conditions like cancer, heart failure and lung disease. Whether supporting people in the hospice or their own homes, the charity focus on quality of life – giving every patient the care and support they need to spend the time they have left in the way they choose.

When my darling wife Annie became sick with a terminal illness we reached out to our local Sue Ryder Nettlebed hospice. They really helped us during such a difficult time in our lives. Although my Annie has since passed, the memory of the love and compassionate care which the Sue Ryder staff provided remains forever in my thoughts. It is therefore a great honour to help raise awareness for Sue Ryder’s wonderful work!

I do hope that you will join me for the 2017 Nettlebed Fireworks display as it will be a really fun evening for all of the family! There will be a spectacular fireworks display and bonfire, food and drink stalls, child and adult tombolas, and the hotly anticipated children’s Halloween fancy dress competition. Please book your tickets now using the link below as your support will help Sue Ryder to continue their important work in our local community.

Warmest regards,
