About this Collection
Thank you for your everyone who registered to have their tree collected and made a donation.
A huge thank you to everyone involved in making this year's scheme such a success. Keep an eye out for when we announce how much has been raised for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and other local charities.
Monies from the collection will also be donated to Maggies and the Over Day Centre.
At the Over Day Centre, they focus on providing high quality support for older people, and those who are socially isolated. They help people maintain social interaction and participate in recreation and enjoyable activities. Their services provide much needed support or respite for carers and families.
Maggie's provide a unique programme of information, practical and emotional support to people with cancer and their loved ones.

About the Hospice
Arthur Rank Hospice supports people in Cambridgeshire living with a life-limiting illness and those who need end-of-life care. Services are provided free of charge to patients and their families; the aim is to provide the highest quality care, helping them to make every moment count.
The Hospice cares for more than 3600 patients each year across the Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. Their specialist and community-based palliative care is timely and compassionate. They support patients with a life-limiting diagnosis to improve their quality of life and fulfil their choices at the end of their lives.
The care and support provided by the Inpatient Unit, Day Therapy and Hospice at Home teams is practical, holistic and tailored to the individual. Programmes may include psychological support, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitative support, counselling, bereavement and spiritual support. Outpatient services such as medical and pain clinics, as well as our lymphoedema service, are based in the Bradbury Wellness Centre at the Hospice.
As experts in their field, the Hospice is passionate about sharing its specialist knowledge and continuing to raise the standard of palliative and end-of-life care across the region, running a variety of courses for healthcare professionals.
As a charity, the Hospice needs to secure £8.1 million every year to deliver its services free of charge to patients and their loved ones. About half of this currently comes from statutory sources, with further funds raised by the Bistro, Education and Conference Centre and Hair and Nail Salon. The Hospice is hugely grateful to its local community, which contributes the remainder by raising funds in a number of ways, including: donating to the Hospice’s shops; participating in events; taking on personal challenges; holding fundraisers; or leaving a gift in their Will.
The Hospice is always looking for new ways to raise funds so that it can continue to provide and develop its vital services long into the future.
