£1 million left to raise!

We are thrilled to announce a major milestone in the fundraising appeal as we push to raise the final £1 million necessary to deliver the new hospice.

The fundraising campaign, which has been running since February 2019, has seen a remarkable level of support from Norfolk and beyond, as people have come together to support the much-needed new project.

“This is an incredible moment for the charity,” said Robert Carter, Chairman of the Priscilla Bacon Hospice charity. “When we launched, we had a £12.5 million target to raise. In a very short space of time, we’ve been able to galvanise a tremendous level of support for the much-needed new hospice. We now only have £1 million to go before we hit our overall goal.

“The success of the fundraising appeal has been down to the generosity of so many people and organisations. We are eternally grateful for their support and know this will have an incredible impact on people’s lives in years to come.

“We do need to raise the final £1 million, so we are asking everyone to support us on the final push, as we work towards creating a new hospice for Norfolk and Waveney.”

The new site, which is adjacent to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, will be home to a state-of-the-art palliative care unit with capacity for 24 beds, a day patient unit, wellbeing centre and outreach facilities. This will replace the current Priscilla Bacon Lodge – situated on Unthank Road – and will build on the 40 years of outstanding care given to thousands of people around the county.

Sandra Dinneen, Strategic Project Advisor for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice Charity said, “This complex 18 month building project is on schedule, which will enable the new Priscilla Bacon Lodge to open in summer 2023. Our focus is on raising the final £1 million to achieve a hospice that will offer the very best level of care in a bespoke facility set within a stunning environment. It will put Norfolk back at the forefront of the hospice movement and will provide the people of Norfolk and Waveney with the specialist end-of-life care they deserve”.
