We were delighted that the organisers of Brackley Festival of Motorcycling chose Katharine House as one of their charity partners this year. As ever, the event was really well attended and we were pleased to have a visit from Dominic Copas, Chairman of the Festival, who popped in (with a bike or two!) to drop off the donation of £1000.

Mr Copas stated that one of the main objectives of the Festival was to raise money to support local charitable organisations and the committee were proud to be able to support the invaluable service offered by the Hospice to the local community.

Dean Harris, Fundraising Assistant at Katharine House, said: "This fantastic sum could fund our Bereavement Service for a whole month, helping local children, teenagers and adults come to terms with the loss of someone close to them. The donation is greatly appreciated by everyone at the Hospice, and we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who made the Festival such a success."
