Spring 2022

Keep up with news and events, and find out all the ways you can be involved.

We’re delighted to bring you our new-look Spring newsletter with all the latest news and events from Willen Hospice.

You’ll notice it has a new name – Friends of Willen – a deserving tribute to the fantastic team of fundraisers who have been part of our story for four decades. Read their inspiring story on page 14.

We also hope the new name reflects the warmth, affection, respect and appreciation that exists between our patients, their families, our colleagues and volunteers and you, our supporters, without whom Willen Hospice simply wouldn’t be able to exist.

Everything you’ve done has meant we could carry on providing the specialist care our community desperately needs.
