Greg, who is a Patron of the Hospice, and recently appointed Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, began his visit with a tour of the building, including the In-Patient Ward and Living Well Centre. He then enjoyed tea in the newly transformed gardens and heard about the Hospice’s plans from Nick Farthing, Chief Executive, Tor Edwards, Development and Communications Director and Jan Thirkettle, Clinical Director.
Nick Farthing said: “For Greg to take time out of his busy schedule to visit us and catch up on our latest projects, including the new Hospice in the Weald for Children was a privilege. We’re extremely grateful to him for championing us as a local charity and supporting our ambitious new ventures.”
Tor Edwards added: “Children’s Hospice in the Weald, will provide free care for children and young people – and their families – through home visits, emotional support and a new children’s centre. To know that our local MP is behind our vision means the world to us.”
Independent of the NHS, Hospice in the Weald needs to raise £8million each year to fund our care for the local community.
Greg Clarke said: “I was very pleased to spend the morning at the Hospice, meeting some patients and hearing about the work of the staff and volunteers. It is wonderful to hear about the upcoming developments to help reach more people, including work to launch the new service which will provide Hospice care for children. I have been a longstanding supporter of the annual Hospice Run in September and hope to be taking on the 10K route again this year.”
