Rotherham Hospice marks 20 years

STAFF, volunteers and fundraisers will be thanked at a party marking Rotherham Hospice’s 20th anniversary on Friday.

The charity will welcome doctors, nurses, therapists, cooks, cleaners and other staff from its first two decades.

Guests will enjoy cream teas and Pimms in the hospice’s Broom Road gardens from 1.30pm to celebrate the milestone.

Chief executive Chris Duff said: “Our anniversary will be a day to say a huge thank you, to everyone who has played a part in giving Rotherham its hospice and in ensuring the care it gives to people at the most distressing time of their lives excels in every way.

“We are so very proud of everything the hospice achieves through all the wonderful staff and volunteers.”

The hospice opened on September 9, 1996, and more than 1,000 volunteers have given 466,633 hours of their time since.
