You are warmly invited to join us to walk together in a spirit of harmony being welcomed into a range of faith communities. We will be focussing on the topic of caring for our elderly and vulnerable including raising awareness of the support offered by Saint Francis Hospice. The hospice specialises in providing care for any person, from any faith or cultural background, who has been diagnosed with an advanced or progressive illness and offers end of life care both at home and in the hospice.
Please bring your own refillable water bottle and come and go as it suits you.
