Liz Eate from Chesterfield in North Derbyshire, said:

Ashgate Hospicecare and the team have been the light for many families. Since dad died, mum and I have been privileged to be involved in campaigns to raise awareness of the hospice and the fabulous work that Ashgate do for the community.

Ashgate, you transformed the darkness into light. You reminded us to live. And you accepted us. Thank you for being our light.”
