The Hospice receives many letters of appreciation for the care and support  that it offers - the following is just one example :


"My GP referred me and I was given a place to attend the Hospice Day Therapy Centre on Tuesday, which has women and men visiting, all living with a range of cancers.  On my first day, I was hesitant but eventually made my way to the door, I was warmly welcomed by another patient who told me I was in the 'right place' and showed me inside.  In the Hospice Day Therapy Centre, there was a hive of activity, volunteers worked alongside the nusing staff and ranges of activities/ therapies were on offer: hairdressing, beauty, reflexology, physiotherapy and prayer, along with individual counseling and advice.  Everyone is treated respectfully and individually with time for all, without judgment or prejudice.

For me, the Hospice was like a 'Safe Oasis', somewhere to pause, to rest, to regain confidence and learn to live each day with hope and purpose."

"If you have some spare time please consider to become a Hospice volunteer and try different roles, you will get so much satisfaction and a lot of rewards.  You will feel part of a brilliant team and it's a great way to gain experience. Through volunteering, you meet a lot of people and form long-lasting friendships.  My advice to others is not to always take, it is so important to give,  as a little time means so much to others"
