Ashgate Hospicecare will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2018. So, this year we are asking you to donate 30 hours of your time volunteering for Ashgate Hospicecare in one of our diverse volunteering roles.
Light up a Life, which runs throughout the whole of winter, gives you the opportunity to celebrate someone you love. To commemorate a loved one, please visit our Light up a Life website.
During the summer months, an area in our garden will be splashed with coloured ribbons, with each length of ribbon meaning something special to someone. In return for a donation to the Rainbow Ribbons appeal, you will receive a length of brightly coloured ribbon for you to write your own special personal message for someone who has brought colour to your life.

Carol Suter from Killamarsh was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in October 2011. In November, she had part of her stomach lining removed and had a hysterectomy. By December, she had recovered from surgery and had her first chemotherapy session, but a week later a major stroke left her paralysed and unable to speak. Carol was admitted to hospital and was given a life expectancy of just six months. It was at this point that a palliative care nurse at the hospital suggested a transfer to Ashgate Hospicecare. Carol's son Rob explains how the Hospice made the harrowing experience of losing his mum bearable.
