New Hospice To Feature Windows Made In Scilly

Oriel's design for the windows

A stained glass window made by Oriel Hicks at her Porthmellon studio will take pride of place in the new Cornwall Children’s Hospice, Little Harbour, when it opens before Xmas.

Charity managers asked Oriel to make it when they came to watch the Scilly Ten race that raised cash for their cause in the spring.

Oriel told us the two panels will be 14ft high each and depict scenes from a harbour, with lighthouse and boats.

It’s a busy time for the Phoenix Studio, with Oriel also producing windows for St Agnes Church and she’s due to complete the commission by December 5th.

George Teideman, representative for the Precious Lives charity on the islands, says he’s delighted that Oriel’s work, and a bit of Scilly, will be part of the new hospice.

And the weather didn’t dissuade supporters from attending a charity lunch to raise cash for the hospice at the Bell Rock yesterday. George says he’s delighted that so many events on the islands are well supported by the local community and June Jones of the Bell Rock says the hotel is happy to support the kid’s hospice because it will offer such an important service.
