Celebrating over 45 years of outstanding hospice care

2019 marked the 40th anniversary of The Hospice of St Francis. We were proud to have been helping local people to live their precious lives well for over 40 years, in the Hospice itself and in people’s homes.

Throughout the year we reflected on our history, looked to the future of our care and thanked everyone for their continuous support which made it possible then, as it still does now. It was an important time for us to come together and remember all those we’d cared for, whilst making sure we could continue caring for years to come.

We had lots of exciting activities and events throughout 2019 and we were delighted that so many got involved during that special year.
