St Catherine’s Hospice is celebrating its 30th anniversary – and people across Lancashire are being urged to give a birthday gift.
Since the hospice, at Lostock Hall, near Preston, opened in April 1985, it has seen many changes.
But what remains the same is the charity’s commitment to supporting people facing life-shortening conditions and ensuring they have a better quality of life and dignity in death.
Now the Lancashire Evening Post is joining forces with the hospice to encourage people to ‘give St Catherine’s a gift’ during its 30th birthday year.
Evening Post editor Gillian Parkinson said: “St Catherine’s has been providing vital help and support for 30 years now.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for us all to say thank you.”
Stephen Greenhalgh, chief executive of St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “Thirty years on from opening, we need the support and involvement of local people more than ever.”
