Hospice Care Week is an annual week of activity by our parent charity, Hospice UK, to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK. Each year we hold a week of celebration and action, which helps to change people’s perceptions of hospice care.
Hospice Care Week gives us an excuse to go out and talk about the extraordinary work that hospices do at the heart of their communities. It is also an opportunity to inspire action – inviting supporters to get involved by volunteering, donating and showing they care on social media. This year's theme was 'Heart my hospice'.
A huge thanks to all our supporters and those who took part. This year was a huge success and saw the team of Hospice UK having an information stand at King's Cross station for the first time and three members of the Senior Management Team being gunged!
