“We are really excited with our new shop coming into the Market Place,” said Judi Byrne, Butterfly Hospice Trust chief executive. “The funds that we take here will be able to support our work to open the in-patient palliative care unit in the hospice in Rowan Way.”

The trust is currently waiting for the opportunity to tender for palliative care funding from the East Clinical Commissioning Group.
