30th year celebrations!

Friday, 20 September 2019
What a fantastic day we had on Wednesday at the Hospice! We invited patients from our local Outreach groups in Airedale, Altofts and Badsworth, to visit the Hospice for a pearl party themed celebration in aid of our 30th year. Our Outreach sessions are for people with life limiting conditions that live relatively well at home, but could benefit from social support from others in a similar situation. The celebration was held in The Haven, a bright, airy space at the Hospice, which was beautifully decorated in keeping with the theme, for our patients to enjoy.

Acitivites Co-ordinator, Jo Lister said; "Our Outreach patients had a wonderful time at the pearl party, celebrating 30 years of Hospice care. It's always fantastic when our three Outreach groups come together. Patients enjoyed a glass of fizz, accompanied by a three course meal and entertainment."   

We were also joined by the lovely Otis Holmes of ITV Calendar News, who spent the morning with us to film a feature about our 30th anniversary year. Otis chatted with our Outreach patients and also to staff about what we do here at the Hospice and our history. We can't wait to show you the finished piece, so stay tuned for more information on when it will be aired.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, we also announced the lucky winner of our Fiat 500 car raffle! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket and helped us raise an incredible £30,000 in our 30th birthday year! We would also like to say a special thank you to HARIBO and Motorpoint for helping us make this possible. Head over to our Facebook page to watch our video of the winner being announced!
