St. Vincent’s Hospice are inviting you to join them at their upcoming virtual event ‘Cocktails in the Garden’.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, planning was well underway for their summer event: Cocktails on the Clyde, which had been a great success the previous year, bringing in vital revenue for the Howwood based charity.

In response to the unprecedented situation, with events still extremely limited and the fact that everyone has been stuck at home for the last few months, the team are determined to help you make the most of it, offering a fantastic afternoon of drinks, food and entertainment for just £37 for two in the comfort of your own home.

Senior Fundraiser for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Louise Strachan, said: “We know how much so many of you were looking forward to our Cocktails on the Clyde event, and that’s why we are determined that despite the current restrictions, we are going to give you the best day possible to support a great cause.

“We have teamed up with Ellis Gin, who will be providing a delicious welcome cocktail, along with a freshly prepared afternoon tea from The Butchers Deli & Bakery in Paisley, both delivered direct to your door. The afternoon then kicks off at 2pm with a welcome from our fabulous host, Peter Ferguson, who will be bringing you laughs, entertainment, raffles and games. We hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on, as Barbara Bryceland, Karen and Curtis Campbell will be providing live music, streamed direct to your home.

“We hope you can join us, and please continue to support the Hospice by taking part in this amazing day. If ‘hame has to dae us’, why not make the most of it?!”

The event will be help on Sunday 2nd August, to reserve a space call 01505 705 635 or email
