People are often interested to discover a hospice is far more than they may have initially expected. Our hospice talks offer groups and companies, the opportunity to learn more about the charity, the work of the hospice and most importantly, the impact it has for its local community.
Members of the charity attend numerous events each year to share information about the hospice and how its range of services helps patients, families, friends, neighbours and work colleagues alike.
The type of people who request hospice talks may include:
- Local groups, such as the WI and the Rotary Club
- Local Schools interested in learning about hospice services and how they can help support
- Companies, looking to select a charity of the year or charity of the month
Our talks can range in length from a brief 10 minute introduction to an hour with a presentation and opportunities for questions and answers. We can tailor the presentation to meet the needs of every individual enquiry and can focus on the hospice in its entirety or a more specific area if preferred dependent on the audience we are speaking to.
To celebrate our 30th anniversary, a book called Tears, Love, Laughter was launched and we are able to offer a talk specifically about this also. The talk includes information about the books content, background surrounding the stories and how the book bought staff, patients, volunteers, families and friends together to recognise the importance of the hospice and its care.
The charity team includes all the staff members at the charity plus our wonderful and dedicated ambassadors. Like our staff, our ambassadors have first hand experience of the impact our care has on the community and the services on offer at the hospice and in peoples homes throughout Cambridgeshire.
We do not charge for our talks, however if your group are able to cover the travel expenses and where possible make a small donation to the charity we would be extremely grateful.
