Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust (ACT) will host a stall during Dying Matters Awareness Week. The stall will be staffed by Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust, the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, local funeral director Woodland Wishes, and the Palliative Care Team. We hope to give patients, visitors, staff and the wider community a chance to talk informally with us, learn more about our services and talk about issues around planning for end of life care, death & dying and bereavement. 


There will also be the opportunity to dedicate a leaf in memory of a loved one on the new ACT Fundraising Tree. This tree will be temporarily displayed during Dying Matters Awareness Week.  


The stall will be located in the Addenbrooke's Treatment Centre on Tuesday 9th May, in the Outpatients Department on Thursday 11th and in the main hospital concourse on Friday 12th.
