NEW Support Café Launching

Hospice Hope to open fourth Support Café in Castle Donington

Hospice Hope provides support to those affected by life limiting conditions in North West Leicestershire, this includes the individual living with a life limiting condition their carers and families.

We are delighted to announce that from 1st April 2019, we will be opening our fourth Support Café at the Community Hub, Bondgate, Castle Donington on Monday afternoons from 1.30pm to 4pm.

The Castle Donington Support Café will join our three existing Cafés based in Ashby de la Zouch, Coalville & Whitwick and Ibstock offering vital support at a local and easily accessible level.

Hospice Hope Support Cafés are open every week on a drop-in basis and offer an informal space to relax, access support from volunteers and to build supportive relationships. Each Café varies slightly but all provide relaxation techniques, complementary therapies and seated chair exercises.  All of our services are provided free of charge, due to the tremendous support the charity receives from our District.

Here are just a few of the reasons why people find our groups so beneficial:

“To have a good support network, even when I am not there (Support Café), helps me to feel less stressed” - Ibstock Support Café

“It helps to talk to others who are going through the same thing, not just the other people, but the staff and volunteers as well” - Whitwick/Coalville Support Café

“The friendly atmosphere and companionship is a good way to de-stress” – Ibstock Support Café

During January, February and March, a representative from Hospice Hope will be at the Community Hub each Monday from 1.30pm to 4pm to talk to local residents about the group and the benefits of attending and take enquiries from potential volunteers and supporters.

Hospice Hope will be holding a launch event on Monday 25th March from 2pm to 4pm at the Hub and the Support Café will be fully operational there on a weekly basis from 1st April.
