Helping us build a new hospice at Thorpe Hall
Work on the new Thorpe Hall Hospice is underway - and we need your help now more than ever.
Unprecedented support from across the region has already seen us raise £2.7 million allowing us to complete the first two phases of the project.
Now, the third and final phase, the building of a modern, state-of-the-art in patient hospice has started. That means the new Thorpe Hall – a hospice designed to serve the region for generations to come – will welcome its first patients next summer.
When someone is incurably ill, we can't change the outcome. But we can change the journey. We want their last days to be spent somewhere special, surrounded by the people they love.- Philip Ball, Care Centre Manager

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire have pledged to support us for the next year, helping us Raise the Roof of the new Thorpe Hall Hospice. They'll be organising events with us, enlisting support and getting involved in fundraising challenges.
In its 40th anniversary year, Hegarty Solicitors, which has offices in Peterborough and Stamford, has pledged to support the Thorpe Hall Capital Appeal. Staff have been asked to nominate themselves for 'life begins at 40' challenges in a combined effort to raise £10,000.

The Fane Clinic provides treatments including podiatry and chiropody, injury rehabilitation and prevention and holistic therapies. The team is working hard to spread the word about our Thorpe Hall appeal.
We announced in June that building of the new hospice will begin in September this year.
No, not yet. But we have robust plans in place to raise the money we need at the right time to cover each stage of the build. It is anticipated the £6 million appeal target will be reached at the same time as the hospice opens. But it is vital that fundraising continues throughout the build.
The first two phases of work - repairing and preserving the perimeter wall, refurbishing the West Wing, adding a new lift and transforming the carpenter’s workshop into the new Thorpe Hall shop - have been completed. We've also created the entrance and reception area for the new hospice. We will start work on the final phase – building the new in-patient unit – in September, but we need the help of everyone in the region to do that. The new hospice will open in summer 2015.
