Angel Springs, the fastest-growing water cooler company in the UK, has backed local charity Compton Hospice as it celebrated its 30th anniversary with a 1980s-themed extravaganza.

The celebration – hosted at Wolverhampton Racecourse – raised roughly £11,000 for the hospice’s ‘Raise the Roof’ project, through ticket sales, a silent auction and a raffle.

Angel Springs is a corporate member of Compton Hospice, and regularly takes part in fundraising initiatives for the charity.

It has previously contributed funds through its payroll giving programme and the hospice’s annual It’s a Knockout contest.

The 30th anniversary gala attracted more than 300 guests, as well as a host of 80s celebrity lookalikes, including a more-or-less Madonna, an almost Adam Ant and a fake Freddie Mercury.

Real-life 80s pop star Jaki Graham appeared to sing some of her past hits, including Could It Be I’m Falling In Love and Step Right Up, whilst Dicky Dodd, DJ on local radio station The Wolf, was on hand to compere the evening’s entertainment.

To complete the nostalgic atmosphere, tribute band Kick Up the 80s played favourites from Bon Jovi, Culture Club and Duran Duran, whilst guests were invited to play retro 80s video games.

Compton Hospice’s Raise the Roof project aims to raise £1 million to help fund patient care and essential renovation work.

John Murphy, commercial director for Angel Springs, said: “Angel Springs is committed to supporting local charities, and we are proud of our ongoing association with Compton Hospice.

“We wholeheartedly support Raise the Roof, and I am sure that it will help Compton Hospice to provide at least another thirty years of excellent patient care.”

Compton Hospice provides palliative care for around 1,500 people from Wolverhampton and surrounding areas. At any one point, the hospice cares for more than 625 local people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
