Did you know that our adult in-patient unit bedrooms are named after trees?
That celebrity gardeners, Adam Frost and Alan Titchmarsh, designed two of our gardens?
Or that our hydrotherapy pool is one of the largest in the country?
By coming to one of our tours, you could see all these special places and learn even more about Keech Hospice Care.
We believe everyone facing a terminal and life-limiting illness should receive excellent care and support. It costs around £6 million a year to provide our care services, around 70% of our funding comes from people like you – our local community and supporters. We feel it is important to show the public how the money is spent and to allow our supporters to see the excellent facilities and level of care that we provide.
It also gives us an opportunity to say thank you to our donors and volunteers, without whom we could not achieve so much.
Who can attend?
We welcome individual supporters and fundraisers, members of community groups, school teachers and pupils, representatives of local companies, new volunteers and anyone who would like to learn more about the work of the charity. (Recommended age over 16)
What will you gain from coming on a tour?
The session consists of a short presentation from a member of the fundraising team followed by a guided tour of our children’s services, hydrotherapy pool, gardens, KPCC and adult unit.
We want to give you an insight into the work of the hospice and tell you about Keech Hospice Care and its fundraising activities. Community support is vital to us and together we may be able to find ways in which you or your organisation can help us.
While we welcome the opportunity to show our facilities to the general public we need to be aware of the needs of our patients and families who are in the hospice during the visitors' day. For this reason, it may not be possible for visitors to see all areas.
When can I come?
Visitors can choose to attend a morning, afternoon or evening session. Group numbers are limited to 12, so attendance at any session is subject to availability. Please leave an hour and a half for each tour.
