Hospice Care Week

Hospice Care Week

Hospice Care Week is an annual week of activity to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK.

Hospice Care Week plays a vitally important role in highlighting the importance of hospice care nationally. We are incredibly grateful to the generosity of the community, from fundraising, to the time given by volunteers to enable us to provide our specialist care. The theme of this year's campaign is "This is What It Takes". With this in mind, we will be highlighting the many areas that have to come together in order for us to make a difference, alongside those who go above and beyond in support of our patients and their families.

As the part of the week, we will be out and about across Hull and East Yorkshire, raising invaluable funds and awareness. Please come and say hello to a hospice representative at the following places:

  • Saturday 5th October – Driffield Centre bucket collection, 10am-4pm
  • Tuesday 8th Octover - Northpoint Shopping Centre tombola, 10am-4pm
  • Wednesday 9thOctober – Asda Kingswood bag pack, 10am-4pm
