This charity is eligible for the Grow Your Tenner 2013!
The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports patients with limit limiting illnesses by funding services, supporting volunteers and working with patients and families. The services funded cover much of Cambridgeshire.
The Charity solely funds: day therapy, bereavement counselling, Hospice at Home service, support on the in-patient unit, complementary therapists, tea bar, support and management of over 250 volunteers, chaplaincy costs, schools' liaison officer, refurbishment projects and much more. The support we give to end of life patients, their families and carers helps people cope with the loss and ensures that patients get the most of out of the time they have with us.
Our Hospice at Home service helps patients stay in their own homes, if that is where they choose to die. Nurses and healthcare assistant provide that vital support to patients and their families during the night when it can be difficult to get the right help in the home. The day therapy service we fund gives patients a programme of activity over a course of weeks to help them manage their condition and meet with people in similar circumstances.
We welcome fundraising volunteers, volunteers to work in our shops or volunteers to work in the hospice in a range of roles.
