ED Bridal opens their doors

We are excited to share the opening of EB Bridal in Alnwick - Northumberland’s new bridal party specialist. Our lovely supporter Hannah Braidford has followed her dream of opening her own business and is generously continuing her support of St Oswald’s Hospice in the process.

Hannah and her family have supported the Hospice for over 10 years now, in memory of Hannah’s Uncle, Peter Braidford.  As the hospice is so close to their hearts, Hannah approached us asking how she could help to raise funds and awareness of St Oswald’s through her new venture. She tells us more:

The bridal shop was opened as I noticed it was a missing piece within the Alnwick wedding community. I’d always wanted to do it and nearly did in 2017, but I felt now was definitely the right time. A great change from the finance and insurance world I was used to. I wanted to support St Oswald’s because every time we fundraise and support the hospice we don’t feel like one of many, we are always made to feel grateful and you take the time out to thank and support us too.

St Oswald’s Hospice is special to me and my family as you cared for my uncle Peter and didn’t just support him but also us as a family through one of the hardest times for us all. You later cared for my step father’s mother too. Uncle Peter was very special to me, he offered me support and help throughout my life. His passing was quick but he wanted us as a family to continue supporting the hospice so others can have the same level of care that he had, so I try to carry this on.

As part of Hannah’s bespoke service for blushing brides, she will help to promote some of our fundraising campaigns, including our;

Danielle Harvey, our Community Fundraising Manager said:

“Hannah has become a close friend to the hospice and myself. She is so driven and passionate in her work and her fundraising. So it is great to see her dream come true. Its thanks to support like this through individuals, families and local businesses that we continue to provide care and support for our patients and their families.”
