Peter explains; “The Hospice Staff were so wonderfully helpful to both myself and my daughter Rebecca, I don’t know what I would have done without them during the last few weeks of Myra’s life. They are an amazing group and all their carers and employees are caring and compassionate, I am so impressed with them and that is why I have decided to become their Patron.”
