Bev Giwelb, decided to celebrated her 50th birthday by throwing a party for her friends and family at a very unique location – No Mans Fort in Portsmouth.

Bev didn’t want gifts – instead she asked everyone to donate to two charities close to her heart. One of which was North London Hospice.

Bev knows a lot about the care provided by the Hospice and the difference it makes to those that need it most – her father, sister, and her sister’s mother-in-law where all cared for by North London Hospice.

Bev said: “The Hospice is extremely special to me and holds a place in my heart. The staff and the service that are provided are second to none.

I will always do all I can to support the North London Hospice, and for my big 50 birthday party I requested that my 45 party guests give generously to the Hospice and a second chosen charity the Guide Dogs for the Blind – instead of purchasing me a birthday present”

“I don’t think I will ever be able to show enough gratitude for the warmth, care and support that this wonderful organisation, that is the North London Hospice, showed to me and my family. Throughout my father Harvey’s illness, they always found ways to keep his spirits high. The Hospice simply is a place of smiles and laughter. The extremely amazing environment the hospice creates ensured that my beautiful sister Daryl was surrounded at all times by the people and things she loved, and was able to maintain her dignity until the very end. The staff treated her like a member of their own family and treated us, her family as their closest friends.”

Bev raised £1,295 beating her target £1,000.
