Shoppers can find out more about the hospice

Staff from our Day Hospice will be in the Frenchgate Shopping Centre later this month to showcase the facilities on offer for people with life limiting illnesses.

The staff from our St John’s Hospice will be in the shopping centre on November 20 from 10 am until 3 pm to promote the day hospice and to help break down people’s fears of attending the service.

Our day hospice is for Doncaster residents with specialist palliative care needs and offers a wide range of support.

The hospice’s day unit provides a spacious environment for numerous activities, including complimentary therapy, arts and crafts and a hairdressing salon. There’s a lounge and activity area, conservatory, treatment and consulting rooms and a dining room.

Joanne Brooks, our Hospice Sister, said: “Why not call by and visit us. We’re hoping that by showcasing what we do, it will help break down barriers for people who can use our service. We can offer a lot of support to Doncaster residents with a life-limiting illness and their families.”
