Special Wellbeing Issue

This is a small way to show our appreciation, and share the things your amazing support enables us to do.

This time, we’ve put together a Special Issue of the magazine. It celebrates the success so far of our new Wellbeing and Social Programme. Launched just six months ago, this service is already helping us to be there earlier for people whose lives are affected by terminal illness, with range of services available from our Therapy Centres in Canterbury, Ashford and Thanet.

Cate Russell, Chief Executive, said: “It’s a simple fact that without the generosity of our local community we just could not sustain our vital work. Pilgrims Matters is a small way we can show our appreciation, and share just some of the amazing things your support has enabled us to do for the patients and families who need our care.”

Supporters should look out too in their print copies of the magazine for the 2017 Supporter Survey. It’s confidential, completely anonymous and free to return. We hope it will help us continue to improve how we communicate with you.
