Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield is inviting the public to visit its facilities as it celebrates more than ten years of providing care to local families.
The hospice will hold two open days, the first on April 20th, exclusive to businesses, schools and groups who have registered their interest in advance.
The second open day, on April 22nd, is open to all without the need to book in advance.
Visitors will have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the hospice’s facilities at Russell House, including the in-house cinema, hydrotherapy pool and sensory room.
Kirsty Goddard, registered manager at Forget Me Not, said the hospice wants to allow people to see how the facility has developed over the past decade.
“It’s nothing like you might imagine a children’s hospice to be,” she added.
During the open days, visitors will also learn more about Forget Me Not’s work with families facing the loss of a child, as well as seeing how the hospice helps to create lasting memories for families.
There will be an opportunity to buy Forget Me Not branded goods, learn more about upcoming events and challenges and meet long-term supporters.
The open days aim to raise awareness of the hospice’s work and celebrate the contributions of local people, groups, schools and businesses in supporting the facility.
