Dunstable childminder Kirstie Riches is holding a charity event for Keech Hospice Care in memory of her Grandad Jim Green

It’s three years since the man she called the ‘Sand Castle King’ died after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And in that time she’s raised almost £10,000 for Keech Hospice Care, who ensured his passing was dignified, pain free and peaceful.

Kirstie, 34, of Downs Road said: “We want to give something back to the wonderful staff who cared for him.” So she’s organising her fourth charity event at Dunstable’s United Services Club where Jim was a life member.

“It’s going to be an awesome 1980s night called Get into the Groove for Keech,” she explained. “There’ll be live music from Joe Corrigan & Signature Swing and the £17.50 ticket covers entertainment, buffet and a raffle.”

She’s also hoping local businesses will donate prizes.

The event takes place at 7.30pm on Friday, November 25. Call Kirstie on 07734 967814 for tickets.
