£4000 to Bury Hospice

Bury Hospice was opened in 1991 with money raised by the local community and its aims then were the same as they are today; to provide specialist twenty-four-hour in-patient, medical and respite facilities care for people with life-limiting illness, whilst doing everything they can to help support their families and carers.

It costs £2.9m per year to run Bury Hospice, and as a charity, they have to raise nearly £2.4m through community support. Every donation makes a difference.
