Time to dig deep as work begins on new Hospice building
The first bricks have been laid on the new Northern Ireland Hospice in Belfast, but it will be much more than just an ultra-modern facility helping people approaching end of life or struggling with complex medical conditions. The words of Priscilla Roche, whose teenage son Jonathan spent his last days in the old hospice, sum up the character of the facility. It was for her family a place of support and comfort where Jonathan died with dignity.
Although the Stormont administration has helped fund the £13m redevelopment, the hospice still needs donations for its invaluable work. It could not exist without the public's help, so give generously.
