The Manorlands Sue Ryder hospice, in Oxenhope, near Keighley, is continuing to develop its provision in the hope more people will be able to spend their final days at home surrounded by family and friends.
A new service to help people at the end of their lives in Peterborough is being launched by Sue Ryder’s Thorpe Hall Hospice.
Among Manorlands’ team of invaluable volunteers is Carol Grice. Her father-in-law was cared for at the hospice several years ago, so before volunteering she was already well aware of the wonderful work performed there.
A St Nicholas Hospice Care service which began in Haverhill in 2011 and helps to make living with dying better for people in their own homes was presented with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service on Tuesday.
