To everyone who supported us in any way during 2020.  Your help in this difficult and challenging year meant we could continue to care for those when they needed it most and support their families.  Thank you so much from everyone at CoBH 

Thank you to everyone who supported Light Up a Life and joined us online for our Dedication.  Special thanks to Rev Simon Robertson, Andover Ladies Choir and Test Valley Brass for their help.  As well as remembering and celebrating so many special and missed loved ones, over £8,600 has been raised for the Hospice.
