Our Charities


Hospiscare is a local, independent charity providing an all-encompassing service for local people with a terminal diagnosis.

They employ professionals that are often leaders in their field and they pride themselves in helping with the emotional,social and spiritual problems of having a terminal illness, as well as the physical ones.
