His Majesty The King opens the new Priscilla Bacon Lodge

We are absolutely delighted that His Majesty The King came to officially open the new Priscilla Bacon Lodge on Thursday 26th October 2023.

The King spent time meeting patients receiving end of life care, alongside their families, as well as talking with volunteers, nurses and other NHS staff who work in the Lodge.

His Majesty spent some time in the gardens, meeting those behind its design and upkeep, along with members of the team who designed and built the new Lodge. He was also able to speak with Trustees, staff, volunteers, donors and fundraisers for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice Charity and the Priscilla Bacon Lodge Support Group.

The King unveiled a plaque to commemorate the occasion and signed a book of supporters, placed next to one he had previously signed on a visit to the original Lodge on Unthank Road in 1998.

It was a truly wonderful day, and we are grateful to all who attended this very special event.
