The Hospice Of St. Francis

19th of November 2003

The Hospice in Berkhamsted has now gained planning permission for a new building and a piece of land has been purchased. We are taking the first steps towards re-building and I am sure that everyone will agree that this is a very exciting time as we plan for the future. We are desperately short of space in the existing Hospice and have outgrown our present facilities. The building of the new project is very expensive but it will ensure the future of hospice care in our community.

To help raise money the following events have been planned:
• The Hospice Christmas Bazaar at Berkhamsted Civic Centre on Saturday
15 November between 9.30am and 1.30pm;
• Christmas Bazaar at Chesham Town Hall on Saturday 22 November between 9.30am and 12.30pm;
• Light Up a Life ceremony at the Hospice at 4.30pm on Sunday 7 December.Carols will be sung and the lights turned on. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served.

The Fund-Raising Office still collects all foreign coins and notes, pre-decimal currency and old 1/2p, 5p, 10p and 50p coins. A total of £34,500 has been raised from these donations and pre-Euro European coins can still be redeemed. We also collect used postage stamps, Co-op stamps, used toner and inkjet cartridges and old mobile phones. For further information please contact Roger Sharp, Community Appeals Manager at 1 Church Lane, Berkhamsted. (01442 877621)
