Trinity Hospice was opened in June 1985 by local GP David Cooper and a dedicated team of fundraisers. In the beginning, it was specifically committed to cancer patients, providing compassionate end of life care to those suffering with the illness.
Today, their care and support spreads through the many communities in the Fylde Coast, offering a range of services to those in need. Janet Atkins, Corporate Partnership Manager describes Trinity as “a hospice without walls” as their help extends further than their 20 bedded in-patient hospice unit.
Their children’s unit, Brian House is currently helping over 90 families, a ‘care at home’ service offers patients specialist care through the night and the Linden Centre is a free service providing vital support to bereaved family members and friends through extremely difficult times.
Keeping this valuable hospice running each year costs over £9.3 million, with only 40% funded. Trinity Hospice then relies on kind donations from the local community and fundraising events to make up the £5 million which allows them to maintain their services. Trinity Hospice volunteer and keen gardener Patricia Green regularly attends the residents’ parties at our parks as guest of honour, accepting charitable donations, judging our gardening competitions and presenting prizes to the winners.
In 2019 UK Leisure Parks and our residents raised £4,421.00 in total! We continue to support this wonderful cause and would like to thank everyone for the donations made so far, let’s keep them coming!
