£25,000 was raised at Peace Hospice Care’s charity dinner on Thursday 24th March at Watford Football Club.

Over 150 guests from local businesses attended the black tie event, where there was a silent auction, live auction, raffle and ‘Heads & Tails’ competition. Guests on the night included Peace Hospice Care Patron, Camilla Tominey, Associate Editor at The Telegraph, and Mayor, Peter Taylor.

Duncan Hullis, Regional Manager for North Europe & Country Manager for UK at DLL says: “DLL were honoured to sponsor this year’s Charity Dinner. Thank you to everyone who attended to support the wonderful work of Peace Hospice Care. We hope, like us, you will continue to support them as your local charity.”

Gemma Norris, Fundraising Team Lead says: “This event was originally meant to be held in March 2020 but sadly we had to cancel just the day before due to the start of the Pandemic. We are so grateful to everyone who attended and supported us on the night and for remaining by our side throughout the challenges we’ve faced over the last couple of years, including our amazing headline sponsors DLL. It was an incredible night and it was great to be back together again.”
