In 1983 the people of East Cheshire decided that our community should have a hospice, and so it began. Almost 30 years later fundraising continues to keep the doors open at the Hospice, and your money helps more than 3,000 patients each year.
We’ve put together 25 fundraising ideas to get you inspired to support our Hospice. Join the event Facebook page or contact us to find out more.
