We are delighted that Her Royal Highness, Princess Michael of Kent is our Royal President and we are grateful for the way in which she has supported us over the years.
She recently spoke at a fundraising event of Peace Hospice Care and said 'Peace Hospice Care has a special place in my heart among the charities that I support, and I have fond memories of the three previous occasions when I have visited the Hospice. On my last visit in November 2012, I enjoyed being reunited with staff, volunteers and trustees and had an opportunity to walk around the Hospice and see the positive ways in which it has developed. It was a memorable evening as I also enjoyed a fantastic fundraising gala event at the Colosseum which helped raise both funds and awareness for Peace Hospice Care.
I am full of admiration for the amazing work that Peace Hospice Care does in the community, helping to support so many families each year facing a life limiting illness. The care and compassion staff readily give was so evident on my last visit to the Hospice, where I spent time sitting with patients and their families who shared with me how the care they were receiving was so gratefully received and how it had made such a positive difference to them at a time of great need.
The demand for hospice services will continue to grow and it's vital that we do everything we can to support the work of Peace Hospice Care so that they can continue to provide the highest level of care to patients and their families.
Please continue to do everything you can to support this fantastic charity.'
