Thank you to everyone who opened their garden or came along to the Hospice Open Gardens event in 2017; you raised a fantastic £7854! This is enough to pay for our Community Nurses to visit 31 patients in their own home, or pay for 17 days of care for patients in the In-Patient Unit here at the Hospice, so your support has made a massive difference to a lot of people.
