Our Tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore  

Hospice Staff paid tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore as part of a national clap organised to celebrate his life.  The round of applause commemorated the 100-year-old, who raised over £33 million for the NHS.

 

 

 

Thank You for the Lovely Goodies!

The generous Buddha Restaurant in Andover very kindly donated a cooked meal for all the staff at the hospice.  It was delicious and there was more than enough for everyone to enjoy.

 

 

 

We received delicious cakes made by the Travelling Cupcake Company in Andover. These were donated by Denise Chappell in memory of her brother, John Chappell, who was well known by the entire team at the hospice.  Such a lovely thoughtful gift.

 

 

 

Waitrose in Andover ‘gave a little love’ with a donation of goodies which were very much appreciated by all the staff.
