#Whatittakes – Hospice Care Week

‘This is what it takes to provide hospice care, and this is what it takes to pay for it all.’

Hospice Care Week is an annual week of activity to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK. Each year we hold a week of celebration and action, which helps to change people’s perceptions of hospice care.

Between October 7-13th we will we sharing ‘What it takes’ to run St Mary’s. Showing that no matter how you choose to support us it actively makes a difference to what we can offer our community.
