'Your talk on Royal Babies was a real hit! - we so enjoyed it!'

-the speaker was very good - several regulars in the audience have told me 'the best historical speaker we have had!'


As well as having fun with friends, the Ladies Lunch is an enjoyable way to support patient care at St. Rocco’s Hospice and help us to look after those who need us in the Warrington area for many years to come – so the more the merrier!

It costs over £3.6million a year to run St. Rocco's. As a registered charity over 70% of our funding is generated by the local community which means we're able to provide free care for the people of Warrington with a life-limiting illness as well as support for their families. 

How Much?

Tickets are just £40 per person or £380 for a table of 10.
