30th anniversary!

Celebrating 30 years of the Ayrshire Hospice

Posted on 15 February 2019 by Katie Ronald

We celebrated our 30th anniversary today (15/2/19) and took some time to recognise the dedicated employed and voluntary staff and amazing fundraising supporters who have tirelessly supported the hospice over the last 30 years.

The work of the hospice has touched the lives of many throughout Ayrshire since it opened on Friday 15th February 1989 and since that day, it has been a centre of exceptional care, comfort, compassion and dignity for those who have suffered from a life-limiting illness, and their families.

Mandy Yule, Chief Executive, said: “As we mark our 30th year, our message to the wonderful people of Ayrshire is, thank you. We wouldn’t be able to deliver the level of care we do if it wasn’t for your support.

“We have an incredible group of volunteers and fundraisers across Ayrshire - some of whom have given their time for over 30 years - and without their efforts, the hospice simply wouldn’t be here. Because of your efforts we have access to some of the best palliative care treatments available allowing our talented employed and voluntary staff to give our patients comfort and quality of life.”

“We have been privileged to give thousands of patients and their families the care and support they need, both at the hospice itself or wherever they have lived in Ayrshire over the last 30 years and we take great pride in that”.

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch with messages of congratulations.  The hospice is planning a series of events to mark this special anniversary year - more details to be released soon!
