Thursday 10th and Friday 11th October – We’ll be playing lots of games with our patients and their families so come on down and play your cards right!

Saturday 12th October – To round off the week, we will host a special afternoon tea for our patients.

Organised by Hospice UK, Hospice Care Week is an annual week of activity to change perceptions and raise the profile of hospice care across the UK.

The theme for this year’s campaign is: ‘This is what it takes’… to provide hospice care and ‘this is what it takes’… to pay for it.

The campaign aims to highlight the less visible work that goes in to providing hospice care, such as all the materials and equipment necessary, and the less obvious ways we have to pay for it, such as through corporate sponsors and partners.
