Peace Hospice Care welcomed its three local MPs and Patrons of the Hospice on Friday 26th February.

Richard Harrington, MP for Watford,  David Gauke, MP for South West Hertfordshire, and the Hospice's newest Patron, Oliver Dowden, MP for Hertsmere, met with Chief Executive Officer, Declan Carroll, and Chairman, David Ellis OBE, to discuss the work of the Hospice in local community and Peace Hospice Care's 25thAnniversary.

Declan Carroll said: "The value that our Patrons bring to the work we do is so important, especially in our anniversary year. We appreciate their continued support, engagement and help ... Peace Hospice Care has reached an important milestone, but we haven't done it alone. It was only built with the support of local people for local people and that is the only way it will continue."

Throughout 2016 Peace Hospice Care will be celebrating its anniversary year. The charity was formed on the 24th June in 1991 where they operated from their first shop in Watford High Street. Today, Peace Hospice Care offers: Inpatient care, a Hospice at Home service, Day Services delivered through their Starlight Centre, bereavement support and a Herts Neighbours befriending service. All of these specialist services are free for people and their families facing a life limiting illness across the Hertfordshire community.
