GROVE HOUSE HOSPICE
It costs over 1.3 million a year to run Grove House. This important local charity relies on fundraising to continue to help people who are going through a very difficult time. In 2010 Grove House will establish its new Hospice at Home service as fully operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This amazing service will support local people who choose to spend the final days of their illness in the security and comfort of their own home. The money raised by the Lions Bluebell Walk will help pay for this service and the many other free services offered by Grove House.
