* 2019 marks 25 years of caring for local people in their own home, the Hospice and in hospital. Our 25th anniversary is an incredible achievement and that’s thanks to you and the amazing amazing people of Greenwich and Bexley who have given their support in a whole variety of different ways; you are our ‘Local Heroes’ and our Mini Marathon is powered by little Local Heroes who raised more than £80,000 following last year’s event – such an fantastic amount!

The Hospice has been providing care and support to local people for 25 years, and with your support, we always will.
