Farleigh Hospice in Maldon
Thursday 27th August
- The Lantern
At the end of last year, Farleigh was pleased to announce the purchase of a new hospice in Maldon. The premises, located in Mill Road, near Promenade Park, offers excellent public transport links and parking facilities. The new site will enable us to more effectively support the Maldon and Dengie communities, and hopefully in the future patients, families, and carers will be able to visit for clinical consultations and group sessions.
To move the development forward, we set up a Maldon Project Group. We have appointed a local architect, Annabel Brown, to help us make the best use of the space, ensuring it meets our needs both now and in the future.
Funds have been allocated to support the project however, we still need an additional £100,000 to complete the refurbishment. Over the coming weeks and months, we will be launching our Maldon appeal, seeking the support of the local community and businesses, to help us create a centre which we can all be proud of.
Alison Stevens Chief Executive said: This is a momentous moment in the history of Farleigh Hospice. We are so proud to once again have a Farleigh in Maldon. The new site is essential to ensure that everyone living with a life-limiting illness or bereavement within Maldon and the Dengie, can benefit from our services.
“To support the refurbishment of our new centre, we need the support of the local community to help us raise £100,000. Any donation you can give, no matter how small, will make a difference to our patients, helping us provide vital care and support in the heart of the community.”
Business supporting the appeal
Local businesses are already supporting the Maldon appeal, with local builder Andy Barber donating his time and skills to fit a new shower facility at the hospice site. Andy was supported by a local plumber and material suppliers, and also set up a Facebook fundraising page to raise the additional £700 to complete the project.
