Willen Hospice was the first charity of its kind in Milton Keynes, founded in 1981 by Dr Marjorie Reid and District Nurse Dorothy Jell. In fact, it still remains the only Hospice caring for adults with life-limiting illnesses in the local area.
In the film, ‘Willen Hospice: Caring for MK since 1981’ we explore how we have evolved to be such an integral part of the local community.
The National Lottery Heritage funded film celebrates four decades of the Hospice, bringing together present and former staff, volunteers, fundraisers and relatives of those who have benefited from the Hospice’s care.
The film was created by Living Archive MK.
