Hospice Care Week 2019 - This is what it takes.....


Hospice UK‘s Hospice Care Week 2019 runs from Monday 7th to Sunday 13th October 2019 focusing on the theme of “This is what it takes”.

During the week, we will be talking to people from all aspects of our Cornish charity about what it takes from their perspective.

We began Hospice Care Week by speaking to our Director of Clinical Services, Gina Starnes.

We continue the 2019 Hospice Care Week theme of “This is what it takes” with a look at the huge contribution that our 30+ shops across Cornwall make to funding our specialist 24/7 care, with Graham Clarke.

Another aspect we look at is the vital role that volunteers play in our Cornish charity from our Chief Executive, Paul Brinsley in the “This is what it takes” theme for 2019 Hospice Care Week.

Fridays are always exciting as it’s the day we announce our weekly Lottery draw winners.  As part of our “This is what it takes” series of films for Hospice Care Week 2019, we see Oli Hoare from Fundraising and Katie Hewitt from our Lottery team talking about the contribution our Lottery players make to funding our specialist care.
