Hospice in the News - June 2023

A selection of newspapers

Welcome to our first Hospice in the News wrap, where we highlight the best pieces of media coverage from the previous month. We had plenty to choose from in June, with highlights covering various areas across Hospice in the Weald’s activity, across multiple mediums.

Our top hits last month include some brilliant stories covered by local and regional radio and television. With Moonlight Walk 2023, Children’s Hospice Week, and Open Gardens all gauging lots of interest, it was an exciting month for the Hospice!

Listen, watch, and read more below…

Charlotte's Special Birthday

We were moved to see Charlotte celebrate her seventh birthday by taking on our Moonlight Walk with her family, in memory of her mum Maiher, who died last year, aged just 35.

BBC South East Today covered Charlotte’s story, and spoke with both the Davies family and Kirsty Boles. 

The BBC’s Pat Marsh also interviewed Charlotte’s father, James Towers on BBC Radio Kent. Charlotte’s efforts at the Moonlight Walk raised an incredible 6,000 for the Hospice.

Children's Hospice Week

Children’s Hospice Week shone a light on the great work that children’s hospices carry out for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families.

The Hospice promoted its children’s offering – Hospice in the Weald for Children, launched in January – and how it’s making a difference to children’s lives.

Read Ronit and Joseph’s stories in Charity Today, Sussex Express or the Heathfield News. You can also listen to interviews with Clinical Director, Jan Thirkettle on Hailsham FM or Ashdown Radio.

Gardens Open for All

Each year, the Hospice in the Weald Open Gardens season features a number of private gardens that all open to visitors, raising money for the Hospice.

The gardens range in size and style, but one thing they all have in common is a warm welcome, a cup of tea and a piece of cake! This year there are 26 gardens opening for the Hospice.

Local Lifestyle magazine featured a great article on our season, and more information can be found on the website.
