Queens Award for Voluntary Service


The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, will be awarded at approximately 4pm. It was announced in June that the Hospice was to receive the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK, one of just five recipients across Hertfordshire to be honoured.

 



Art Exhibition & Auction

As part of our 40th anniversary, forty local artists have kindly donated artwork to our Art Exhibition and Auction. All proceeds raised through the auction will help fortify us for the next 40 years, helping us to continue supporting local people to live their precious lives well. A huge thank you to all the artists who have donated work. Bids can be made online throughout September and also during the Open Afternoon.
