ST Catherine’s Hospice has pulled off a coup by landing an impressive guest speaker for their annual ladies lunch event.

Andrew Boyes, chairman and joint managing director of W Boyes & Co, is the special guest at the event at the Crown Spa Hotel in Esplanade on November 8.

Hospice fundraiser Jane Stockdale said: “The ladies lunch will start with a welcome drink followed by a three course meal with coffee and mints.

“Fashion will be by Moments of Huntriss Row and Get Ahead Hats with other stalls as well.”

Explaining the ladies link, Jane added: “The Boyes empire began in 1881 with a small remnant store in Eastborough, which became a favourite for local housewives.

“There are now 41 stores throughout the north of England selling over 30,000 different items.”
