She was keen to learn more about our extended services in her borough, which now include our Hospice at Home, our Specialist Community and Crisis Support Service, Specialist Advice Line and our OrangeLine service for lonely and isolated people in the community.

Although Debbie had previously attended our birthday service in July, this was her first opportunity to take a tour of the Hospice, including the Inpatient Unit, our day services at Pemberton Place, physiotherapy and bereavement services.

Debbie spent time with staff and patients, and continuously thanked people for the work  they do.

Anne Brown, Head of Major Gifts, said: "We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Redbridge to Saint Francis Hospice this week.

"Like many people who don't have experience of Hospice care, Debbie was interested to learn the breadth of care and support we have to offer, and promised to raise awareness of these services during her mayoral year."
