Have you seen the flower trail outside Broomfield Hospital?

Yesterday marked the start of Hospice Care Week, an annual event which aims to raise awareness of hospice care within the UK. 

This year, the focus of the event is “We Are Hospice Care” – shining a light on all of the people who play their part in hospice care. At Farleigh Hospice, this includes not only our staff and volunteers, but also our carers, supporters, and retail customers

To celebrate this event, we have created a trail of environmentally-friendly sunflowers linking the hospice to Broomfield Hospital. We work closely with the Mid Essex Hospital Trust, and would not be able to run our services without the support of the NHS.

Farleigh Hospice retail shops across mid Essex are also celebrating the event, with yellow-themed window displays as part of a nationwide competition run by Hospice UK.

You may have also noticed a large amount of social media activity this week, including a “did you know” campaign, highlighting facts about the hospice that people may not be aware of, such as we provide care from the day of diagnosis as well as support for carers and families.

We're also continuing our Future Farleigh campaign, asking the people of mid Essex for their opinion on how we can improve and progress in the future. More details of this can be found at www.farleighhospice.org/futurefarleigh.

We'd like to thank the people of mid Essex for your ongoing support. Without your generosity, we would be unable to provide our specialist care when people need us the most.

It is because you care that we can.
