Royal Visitor

Monday, 27 March 2017
Crowds gathered on Halfpenny Lane to catch a glimpse of the Royal visitor on this very exciting day.

On arrival, Prince Charles was greeted by HM Lord Lieutenant for West Yorkshire, Dr Ingrid Roscoe, before being introduced to Hospice staff, volunteers, patients and supporters.  

His Royal Highness spent time chatting to staff and patients in Day Therapy, before moving on to see the newly refurbished Incare ward.  There, he spoke to Incare patient Whynne Staniforth, who said:
"It was fantastic, I really enjoyed it.....he asked me questions about my cancer and things like that...and he was really very thoughtful."

Some of the Hospice's most generous supporters met His Royal Highness in the Garden Room, where he thanked them for their continued support to the running costs of the Hospice, and urged others to consider giving support in the future.

"So for me coming back now it's remarkable to see the difference, the expansion, the unbelievable quality of care that can be offered to so many people in this area and of course those who are generous enough to help keep the place going."
