WFB - Dove House
Subject - The Dove House Hospice project, on Chamberlain Road in Hull.
Our weekly feature focuses on the fund raising efforts in the late 1980s and early 1990s which were established to raise the funds needed to build a new, purpose built hospice facility. It was to replace the old and outdated buildings of the North Humberside Hospice on Beverley Road in Hull. The new hospice site was in the grounds of the Reckitt's Social Club on Chamberlain Road and the project was steered by the Chairman of the Hospice Project, the late Mr. John Benfield. He sadly passed away just after work started to build the hospice facility. We hope these images of charitable endeavours remind readers of the huge fund raising drive which involved many local people, schools, clubs, other charities and businesses.
Date - March 2nd, 1988
Caption - March 2nd, 1988: Five kind hearted youngsters were right on cue when they decided to raise money for the Dove House Hospice appeal. Nine year old Michael Naylor organised his school pals to take part in an eight hour pool marathon which raised ?80. His grandmother passed away about three years ago and he wanted to do something to help the hospice, because they were very good to us at the time, said Michael's mum, Mrs. Margaret Naylor.
He and his friends used the pool table we bought him for Christmas and whenever they took a rest, he said they had to play educational game son the computer.
Teachers at the childrens school, Sutton Park Infants School, along with aunts and uncles, sponsored the young players. Pictured here are (from left) Paul Mablethorpe, Brendon Hodgson, Rebecca Naylor, Michael Naylor and Paul Thompson. This picture is dated March 2nd, 1988
