1920x400 30th Anniversary1

2021 marks 30 years of Peace Hospice Care.  Back in 1991, the Local Health Authority approved the building of a Hospice on the site of the old Peace Memorial Hospital.

Work began and the following year a portacabin was located on the site providing a Day Care Centre.  After fundraising, the Centre was later transferred to the Hospital building and was officially opened in 1996 by our Royal President, Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent.

Our thanks to the local community for their support.  Whilst we receive some funding from the NHS, the vast majority comes from the local community – from individuals, businesses and other organisations.  What we do is only possible because of that support – thank you.

During the year, despite the pandemic, we are determined to celebrate what we have achieved over the last 30 years and to share our ambitions for the next 30 years, to raise the profile of hospice care and to help many more people, with life-limiting illnesses, understand about our free services and encourage them to access those services.

Please do check back on our website and social media through the year to keep up with our 30th anniversary celebrations and activities as we launch and promote them.
