BOLTON Hospice has announced that it is opening a new ‘Wellbeing Hub’ in the autumn.

The hub will be a “beautiful, calming space” and alongside the charity’s current day therapy model.

It will offer a flexible, drop-in service with access to new wellbeing and support sessions and specialist services so the hospice can help even more local people with life-limiting illnesses.

The hospice revealed its plans during Remember a Charity week, a national campaign to encourage people to leave a gift to a good cause.

A spokesman said: “This redevelopment and improvement of our support services was only made possible due to restricted funds from a generous Gift in Will made to the hospice in 2019.

“Our new Wellbeing Hub will help patients and their families for years to come, making a lasting difference to our community.”

The Chorley New Road hospice, which has shops in Horwich and Westhoughton, is asking more people to consider “making a lasting difference” by remembering it in their will.

The spokesman said: “Just a small gift or percentage of your estate would make sure that the hospice and the specialist care we provide will be here for local people who need it well into the future.”

The charity says that a gift of just £350 could pay for all its patient and family care and support services for an hour.
