Bishopbriggs woman Fiona Hendry organised a night of magic in memory of her late husband and to thank the 
hospice who cared for him.

The recent event in Bishopbriggs’ Fort Theatre raised the 
impressive sum of £1,300 for Marie Curie Hospice in 

Fiona’s husband Raymondpassed away from cancer a year ago. She told the Herald she was so impressed with the “superb” care he received, she wanted to raise much-needed cash to support the hospice.

Fiona organised the event with the help of her daughters, friends, members of Bishopbriggs Fort Theatre and three talented magicians.

Fiona said: “It costs £5.2 million pounds a year to run the hospice and £20 per hour for a Marie Curie nurse.

“Some of these nurses work providing 24-hour care within the community, allowing many people the choice 
of being at home with loved ones in their final weeks.”
