Latest News and Events from St Wilfrid’s Hospice
What’s on over the coming months…
Christmas Tree Recycling
The simplest, greenest and most charitable way to get rid of your Christmas tree this year is to get involved in St Wilfrid’s Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme. Let St Wilfrid’s wonderful team of volunteers collect your tree and ethically dispose of it for you from 6th to 20th January 2020 in return for a donation to the Hospice.
Your donation will mean the gift of quality time for patients facing terminal illness to spend with their loved ones. St Wilfrid’s Hospice is there for patients and their families all day, every day of the year. So while we are all enjoying some festive cheer over Christmas, our nurses, chefs and housekeeping staff will be here doing their bit to give patients and their families the best Christmas possible.
By teaming up with Chichester District Council we’ll also be providing your tree with new life as organic mulch, feeding the Christmas trees of the future. You can find your post code and sign up at stwh.co.uk/christmastrees
Light Up A Life 2019
This December, St Wilfrid’s invite you to come along and remember loved ones with us at our traditional annual remembrance event held on Sunday 8th December at Chichester Cathedral. Starting at 6pm, this service of readings and traditional carols by the Cathedral Voluntary Choir involves lighting a candle in memory of your loved one. It’s a reflective, yet uplifting service providing an opportunity for comfort and quiet contemplation.
