Fair Havens Hospice has been caring for people who have been given news that they have an illness that cannot be cured and all that can be done is to make life comfortable.
We've been supporting their families too; to cope, grieve and come to terms with the death of their loved one.
Fair Havens was the vision of a group of people, including Daphne Hall (pictured), who saw that the care for patients with life-limiting illnesses was woefully lacking.
Daphne turned to the local community to raise money and, thanks to their generosity, in 1983 Fair Havens opened its doors.
Since then, our nurses have cared for over 25,000 patients and countless family members throughout the toughest time of their lives.
