Founded in 1980, Nottinghamshire Hospice is a community-based palliative care centre which provides high quality care services to adults who have terminal and life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers.
All services are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. Each year Nottinghamshire Hospice needs to raise £4m to fund the services they are proud to provide to the Nottinghamshire community.
All the work of Nottinghamshire Hospice goes back to ‘Adding Life to Days’. They aim to improve the daily lives of people who have been told that their illness cannot be cured. They help people who are thought to be in their last year of life to live as actively and well as possible with care that puts the highest value on dignity, choice and respect.
Now, more than ever, they need your support to continue the ongoing work and launch new services to support our community in a time of crisis.
In 1984, my family and I were looking for a home near to my new job in Radcliffe -on-Trent. I was driving over Gunthorpe Bridge on the way to a rugby match and saw a sign for East Bridgford.
Curious, I turned off and drove in just as the road-side daffodils and cherry blossom were in full bloom.
We moved in later that year and have now lived in this vibrant & beautiful village of just under 2000 residents for more than half of my lifetime.
However, it was only during a previous Open Gardens event that I discovered how many wonderful gardens there are here, some hidden from view.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy the same experience.
