Come and meet your Hospice team when they are out and about in the community in Hospice Care Week from Monday 8th October to Sunday 14th October.

Hospice Care Week is a national campaign organised by Hospice UK which aims to support local hospices by raising awareness of hospice care and why it’s so important.

What’s On in Hospice Care Week

  • Tracey Batt and colleagues from the Hospice team will be at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in the restaurant on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th October. “If you’ve got any questions about hospice services, or palliative care, or how to access the Hospice or anything like that, please do come and talk to us,” says Tracey Batt.
  • If you are in Friars Square on Wednesday 10th October, Charity Volunteers and staff will be selling delicious cakes and bakes to raise money for the Hospice, and they’ll be available to talk to anyone who wants to know more about what the Hospice does.
  • Additionally Florence Nightingale Hospice staff will be at Holy Trinity Church Coffee Shop on Walton Street from 10.30am until 12.30pm every day from Tuesday 9th October until Saturday 13th October. “Holy Trinity Church will be raising awareness and funds for Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity by taking part in Hospice Care Week. Trinity Coffee Shop will be open, proceeds from which will be donated to the Charity,” says Claire White, a Volunteer at Trinity. “Many people in the church have had links to the Charity in various ways over a number of years and we are proud to continue supporting FNHC in this way,” she says.
